Papa’s World – a walk along a deserted beach with grand kids!

Often times you look on the other side of the fence – and then there comes a time you get a chance to walk at a place that would look the same 300 years ago! Here is that place at the far end of Cherry Grove – S.C. where no houses are built – no piers or docks – just sand – ocean and trees and shrubs – a deserted beach!
This I think is what the coast line looked like long before the settlers came here. No buildings – just raw nature – surf – and sand!
First – you have to find the path through the trees and shrubs to get to the beach!
Finding a very large tree washed upon shore – perhaps 60 feet long!
Sherry Tammy Cassidy Bode Taylor

Walking along the surf – no one in sight – imagining that this is how nature looked centuries ago!

And then we turn around and in the distance the pier – broken from the last major storm! Mother and daughters – solitude – listening to the surf – and time to turn around – head back to the houses.
In the background – the end of the buildings – the broken pier and a deserted beach – and looking ahead into nature what it looked like all those years ago. Tammy – Cassidy – Sherry (MorMor) Bode Taylor

This is a place where the past meets the future –

and we had the pleasure to bring the family

to see – hear and experience it!

Walking back to the future – Bode and MorMor!
Walking to the past from the future!

Papa’s World – crafting with MORMOR!

MORMOR – Swedish for MOTHERS-MOTHER – that has become her name for the three little ones!

Sherry has introduced crafts to all the grand kids –

and to this day – the three older ones still do crafts!

Taylor Bode Cassidy 10 6 10 years old.

All you have to do is say craft and the go right to the table – no fuss!

Busy once again – crafting – she teaches them and now Cassidy helps the other two. She is the one who texts – calls or zooms her MORMOR every day!
Cassidy – who can do any craft by herself – and often sets by herself with her IPAD – listening to instructions and creates pictures and drawings that are much larger than what she sees on the IPAD – drawing freestyle!

The older ones have that same talent – Ella has won awards for her creations.

Taylor – whom loves her alone time – building farms – houses – horses out of LEGO’S!
Bode -the one who is hard to slow down – always on the move – loves his craft time with MORMOR!

She teaches them – one at a time – not only crafts – but life itself!

Here they are after creating their make a shell wish – and MorMor helping to hang those wishes!

Papa’s World – find a seashell – write a name and date – and then make a wish!

There is a place – next to the ICW – in Vereen Memorial Park – where you find a shell – date it and your name – hang it from a tree – and then make a wish – hundreds of the hang and this one is from our Taylor!
At ten years old – she already is five foot tall – she will someday be taller I think than her MorMor( Sherry) who is 5′ 9″ must be the Swede coming through!
I am little – some day I will be bigger – so she says – but every day she either calls or texts her MorMor ( Sherry ) and that sweet little soft voice – “I love you MorMor ” here she hangs her wish!
Cassidy showing her shell for a wish! I think she looks just like Taylor in this picture!
Bode – hanging his seashell wish – the only boy out of six grand children!
I have said – Cassidy and Bode should of been the twins – they are two peas in a pod!
Bode Taylor Cassidy

They came to spend a long weekend with us –

seeing where we live and where we are building our new home!

They were so excited – and hiking was on our things to do!

We had told them there was a place to make a wish and hang the shells from a tree!

But first you must search for the right shell

then date it and put your name on it!

MorMor – leading Taylor – Cassidy and Bode on a search for their own perfect sea shell!
MorMor(Sherry) inspecting each one as they bring them to her!

Papa’s World – making memories – cookies – with the oldest grand daughters!

First you gather the ingredients – then you gather the grand daughters and their mother!
Mother ( Debby) Ella Sarah Sherry ( grand ma) Maddy

Memories are made each year during the holidays –

making Christmas cookies is one of them!

Sherry has done this for years – and they all love it!

They laugh and laugh at her and with her!
The results – or a small fraction of the results – all decorated by each of the grand daughters!

She teaches them her heritage and is passed down generation to generation.

Sherry is Swedish – her grand mother was born in Sweden.

She is 5 ‘ 9″ tall – and Ella is almost as tall – Sarah will be that also and Taylor at 10 years old

comes up to her chin!

The temptations are there – YUMMY!
She is a educator – teaching them to be themselves – honor – compassion and self worth!

Respect is what they have for her.

Admiration – and laughing – both at her and with her.

Going shopping with Grandma!

MEMORIES for a lifetime!

Ella Sarah Sherry

We will come up once more and spend a couple days and Christmas eve.

Then we will go back to Tammy’s for Christmas day!

The little ones are so excited and she made cookies with them also!

To them she is not grand ma – but MORMOR – mother’s mother in Swedish!

After Christmas we will once again head back to S.C.

Knowing that Memories were once again made

and captured into this blog

for future reading – seeing !

My little contribution to the cookie making!
ELLA will be on a soccer team in college – and will play against her sister Maddy at the University of Lynchburg!

But that is another blog in the works!

Papa’s World – Grand ma’s day out with Daughter and Grand Daughters!

Maddy 20 Ella 17 Sherry ?? Sarah 14

Sherry – who stands 5′ 9″ with our three oldest grand daughters!

Now – Maddy is 5 ‘ 6 ” Ella is pretty close to Sherry and Sarah is 5’ 6 or 7″

Sarah has started to get taller like Ella did – and I think will be taller than Sherry!

Plus – one of the twins – Taylor – well she is 10 and comes up to just under Sherry’s chin!

Must be the SWEDISH heritage coming out!

Debby – our oldest daughter – and her three girls

They all went into town to get their ears pierced again!

All except Debby!

Every time she is with them – laughter prevails!

She showed them how when you put our car on cruise control

The radar activates – and the car will almost steer itself!

She took her hands off and it went around two slight bends in the road

They were amazed and then all burst out laughing

as a message came across the screen in the car

“PUT YOUR HANDS BACK ON THE STEERING WHEEL”!

About to get their ears pierced!

A trip with grandma – “ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS GRANDMA – IS YOU !” says Sarah!

Well maybe a few other things! LOL

Our plan is to spend three days with them – and then head back to Tammy’s

as they have school and jobs.

Then we will all spend Christmas day together at Tammy’s

at least that is the plan now and could change during these trying times.

Ella and Maddy – Ella may be playing soccer against her next year in college! She has to select between two colleges.

Grandma and Grand Daughters – LIFE IS GOOD!

AT OLD TOWN – WINCHESTER VA.

Paps’s World – missing the little ones!

We have been gone from their home two weeks.

Yet – almost every day – one of the little ones

will face time or call.

Cassidy loves her MORMOR

she is the one who I think misses us the most.

She would come down those stairs to say good night

give hugs and this would happen several times!

She was always asking when we would come back.

Bode – so much like Cassidy but all boy!

Every morning without fail

from 6 to 6:15 AM.

Down those stairs he would come or if I were on the front porch

climb up onto my lap.

” I LOVE YOU PAPA”!

As simple as that!

Taylor or “T” as I call her

so mature – so kind – who only wants to ride horses!

She takes lessons once a week –

She knows how to groom them and saddle them

how to clean their hooves.

“T” who just wants her ALONE time-

in her room reading or playing with her horses and lego’s!

WHEN THEY WERE YOUNGER!

We spent almost three months with them

One time they spent a year with us.

Sherry is their “MORMOR”

Swedish for MOTHER’S MOTHER!

That is all they have ever called her.

Bode at five is now golfing with his daddy!
“T” is so fast growing up!
Cassidy is the one who teaches the others crafts – just as her MORMOR teaches others!
Cassidy is her MORMOR’S SHADOW!

Yes – missing the three little ones

The older three are growing up

one in college – one about to graduate

and one who wants to be with grandma!

The three little ones – who are young enough

to see we are now at a distance and call all the time.

And then there is Tammy – their mother

who in all her life has never lived more that two hours away

This is where the little ones get it from

MORMOR – MOTHERS MOTHER

Tammy – Sherry’s daughter

The family lives on –

“WE LOVE YOU MORMOR”

Yes LITTLE ones – she knows with tears of joy!

SWEDISH MORMOR MOTHER’S MOTHER Debby – GIGI – Sherry – Tammy
