Papa’s World – Bode – will you walk with me? Twins – Blue glasses and desks.

He quietly came down the carpeted stairs –

and walked softly over to me where I was writing my blog.

Bode – six years old – our only boy – five grand daughters!

“How many sleeps are left Papa – before you go away”? he asked.

You see – every morning when we stay with them – before 6 am. down he comes.

“Will you walk to the bus stop with me Papa”?

He started a week ago going to actual school twice a week.

Three days at home virtual learning!

Bode – walking to the bus stop with Papa – MorMor and Daddy!

Two sleeps I answered and yes I will walk with you!


The twins – Cassidy and Taylor – have been in virtual learning the entire time

Making the choice not to go back to school –

They are thriving and doing really well!

Cassidy and Taylor – twins – ten years old – at Taylor’s desk in the basement near our room.

They both are in the basement only in different rooms –

they help each other out – Cassidy will always go to Taylor if she does not understand!

I had no idea what the glasses were for – but was told –

“They are BLUE GLASSES Papa – to protect your eyes from the screen on the chrome book”!

WOW – they look so old in them!

Bode – leading the way to the bus stop – love his back pack!

He told us he liked school – does not know how many are in his class –

Does not know how many boys or how many girls are in his class!

” But Papa , I am the fastest one in my class”!


Thank you for reading Papa’s World


Taylor and her desk – at ten years old – already 5′ 1/2 ” tall!

Papa’s World – we got a letter from Bode – “I love you Papa and Mor Mor”!

Bode – around three years old

The letter was in the mail – it was from our son in law

We knew it was coming – he was forwarding some mail to us.

But – inside was a surprise – a letter from our six year old grand son BODE!

He started virtual kindergarten from home this year!

Because of how his birthday falls – his parents held him back .

Instead of being the youngest in his class – he now is the oldest.

The letter above is something I cherish – when we stayed with them

after we sold our house – every morning before 6 am.

Down the stairs he would come to their finished basement.

We had a bedroom – bathroom – living room – storage room and another living room!

He would climb up on my lap as I wrote my blog.

Papa – what are you writing about today? He would ask!

This was everyday – he would spend time with me – before he headed upstairs.

On the back of the letter – he drew a picture – a Su bmarine! LOL

He calls us both – using a type of zoom message system.

He tells us what he has been doing – or showing his latest toy.

The night before we moved to S.C – we had a fun night out with the family.

This week – the week of 2-15-21 – as I write this blog ahead of time to post later

For the first time – he will get on the bus by himself – and go to school.

He needed it – as learning from home is just not for him.

So – for two days a week – he goes to school – the other three is virtual.

His sisters are doing all virtual as they love it and are doing good.

His mother’s post on face book.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papa’s World – education has been regulated to the home!

As grand parents and as Parents – trying times are ahead

I never imagined we would be doing this –

monitoring school – class – and a kindergarten first time student!

Set up number two!

We had them all set up and then had to move them.

First – there would be too much distraction for Bode

being in the same room with the twins.

Then we had to move Cassidy

because of feed back from Taylor’s monitor!

After the second set up for Bode upstairs

Tammy had to move him because the lighting was not good

His teacher could hardly make him out

so he got better light in front of the living room window!

He is all set up and is interested in what he is doing

and raises his hand to speak!

He has the computer skills and is learning fast on how to navigate!

Taylor’s classroom

Taylor is the only one to remain in her original chair!

Cassidy wanted to move – and Taylor was happy

to stay where she was!

Taylor and Sherry at my desk site

Taylor is the quiet one – and a very good student.

She listens the best of the three.

She was very happy not to move

Has her blanket to stay warm –

this is in the basement – and cooler down here.

She has all her things and animals

and arranged for her to reach.

Yesterday she got dressed for horse back riding


comes up to Sherry’s shoulder

Sherry is 5′ 9″!

Cassidy’s desk – notice how neat and organized everything is!

Cassidy wanted to be the one to move –

we set up our table in the back room with the flowered sectional.

They use this as the playroom and there is a huge closet

and that is where she moved all the toys by herself

so we could set up the table!

Cassidy with her favorite stuffed animal and one sitting on the table as if watching!

She is the neatest of the three – well Bode has a neat bedroom

but he is all boy and tends to leave whatever he is playing with

and moving onto the next thing.

But – she has to have everything in it’s place

all neat and in rows!

She knows if you move anything!

She can be the sweetest little girl

in her little voice – but she can also be the opposite.

Of the three – she clings to MorMor

asking the questions of when we are leaving

and when she will see us again.

She always makes it a point to say goodnight or goodbye.

Tammy Bode Taylor Cassidy

Tammy was the first one to follow us to NVA

We made the trip back to Rochester to pack her up

and she moved down to live with us.

She is quiet about the move – but like Debby who is very emotional

about us leaving – she is also.

Papa’s World – The life of a grand parent!

Times have changed – today it is IPAD – SMART PHONE

and they can do it better than I can!

In this picture there is Sherry and all six grandkids.

Soon – in a little over three weeks – we will be leaving.

Going South – for FIVE MONTHS

trying to think out our possibilities

Do we rent – buy – house – apartment – condo!


Until then – next week – the three little ones start virtual classes.

Now – I can show them how to butter bread –

cut a piece of pie or cake

even use this as a screwdriver or the other end as a hammer

but – I know nothing when it comes to being a techie!

They all know more than I do!

It will be hard for them in not going to school.

Having interaction with other kids

and with the teacher face to face.

Not to mention – the parents who work.

Where this all ends – I do not know.

We are going to help them get all set up at home.

We will be here for the start up.

Being grandparents can be hard in this new age.

And now – the new norm for the time being.

In a little over three weeks – our new adventure begins

we have already rented and paid for five months.

Watching them last night when they came home

rushing down the stairs to see us

all three talking at the same time

It will be hard on them also

Life as a grandparent can be hard

life as a grandchild can be harder

life now as we know it –

well – we shall live that life one day at a time

For that we are grateful –

that is why I write –

Thank you for reading Papa’s World


Going to miss them all.
