Papa’s World – Coloring eggs on the lanai -exploring Barefoot Landing – LITTLE ONES!

One of the first things Sherry did for the little ones after they had a good nights sleep-

Was to color Easter Eggs!

So – she hard boiled the eggs – set up on the Lanai – and they got to it!

Taylor Cassidy Bode – on the Lanai overlooking the small lake at Ocean Keyes – coloring Easter Eggs!

This has been a tradition with MorMor – as they call her -Swede for Mothers Mother!

She has done this even before Bode – who is six was born!

Afterward – things were washed up and packed for Tammy to take back to NVA!

Cassidy Bode Taylor

I think Cassidy and Bode should of been the twins!

They are so much alike and act the same.

It is hard for me to tell the difference if I am not looking at them – to see who is talking!

Now – Bode is going to be tall like Taylor – who is so laid back!

She likes her “TAYLOR” time!

She also is going to be the tallest of the granddaughters

With Maddy being 5′ 6″ – Ella 5′ 8 1/2 ” and Sarah pushing Ella at 14 years old!

We took the family to Barefoot landing in North Myrtle Beach –

We had taken them there before and the little ones love the playground!

There was a Easter Egg hunt – scavenger – find the different stores hunt going on!
Cassidy at one of our favorite stores!

Then it was time for a late lunch – our reservations were ready!

PAPA’S WORLD

Papa’s World – She will turn 18 this summer – it seems like yesterday she was Tiny – Ella College – Randolph College Va.

Ella – our second oldest granddaughter – enrolling in Randolph College in Lynchburg Va.

We called her “TINY” as she was growing up –

Her father came up with that nickname –

Today she stands 5′ 8 1/2 ” –

Our little girl is all grown up!

Along with her entrance into the four year program – she will also play college soccer – being recruited – she had two schools to select from – and it just so happens to be cross town from the University of Lynchburg – where her sister starts on the soccer team there – and yes they will compete against one another!
Ella with her mother Debby – all three granddaughters are as tall or taller than their mother. Debby’s mother – Sherry – is 5′ 9″ – so they are most likely inheriting the Swedish genes from her.
It is a beautiful campus – nestled in the foothills surrounding Lynchburg.
The soccer field a easy walk from the dorms.
Ella with her father Mike.

She endured two injuries during her Middle school and H.S.

Both were broken bones in her feet.

One she was stepped on with a cleat

and the other she just landed wrong on it.

She lost two seasons of playing soccer

but when she did – was recruited by two different colleges.

Today she walks the path to her future!

Due to the Pandemic – her H.S. soccer season was moved from the fall to the spring.

She is about to begin playing –

Her travel soccer was played although the number of games reduced.

She competed and will move onto the next level in the Fall.

Ella and Sarah – sisters.

Papa’s World – Cousin Douglas comes to visit – Swede’s talk!

The view from our condo – never gets old.

Douglas will stop overnight – on his journey back North from Florida.

Doug is first cousin to Sherry – both his grandmother and Sherry’s grandmother were sisters

and both from Sweden first generation.

Douglas and Sherry in our condo.

Doug is two years older and can speak fluent in Swedish.

He was a educator all his life – Principal – Superintendent and author.

With over 7000 followers on his twitter blog site.

This is the first time in I believe four years since we last saw him.

And – have invited him to stop in on his next journey through the area.

A lot of family history from both of them was discussed.

I love history – and family history is my observations I like to listen to.

I would sit for hours and talk to her mother about her and her family and childhood.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – another page in our book of life.

I write for those who live and for those who come in the future.

A journal of family – friends and times with pictures.

I have always regretted that I have no history of my own family

other than what I remember and everyone who could tell me is gone.

Papa’s World – Barefoot Landing – Playground – grand kids!

One of our favorite places to go and walk & show visitors –

Is Barefoot Landing – maybe 4 or 5 miles from where we are staying!

Tammy Taylor Cassidy MorMor Bode

Walking around with the little ones –

all the while they are eagar to get to the playground –

to get that energy all bundled up out!

All three in their happy place – and now 450 miles away – “when we come back MorMor – can we go to the play ground”?

They loved it here and even made some friends who they will never see again!

Playing tag – up and down and all around for a hour or more!

This huge old live oak tree – was moved here and saved from a parking lot 800 feet away!

I found that to be awesome – to move and save this over 200 year old oak tree.

And to build a playground around it!

We teach them about nature – walking the paths and trails!

TAG YOU ARE IT! and so it goes – not once but twice we brought them here –

and if they had it their way – we would of been here all day- everyday!

But now – it is time to move on – explore and see the boats and ICW!

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 !

But that is another blog in the works!

Papa’s World – out of pop tarts – ginger bread houses – baking cookies!

Tis the season! We are back home in NVA!

And Sherry and the little ones are baking cookies!

Bode – Taylor – Cassidy – made these Ginger – Bread houses out of POP TARTS!

They followed Sherry’s instructions –

Then it was time to bake cookies!

Bode – Taylor – Cassidy – followed MORMOR’S instructions – and each decorated their own.

They each rolled out the cookie dough –

and each one cut out the cookies.

They then decorated the ones they made!

They love baking with their MorMor – in Swedish – mother’s mother!

And – as she does every year and their favorite

CHEX MIX!

All the grand kids love this when she makes it!
TIS THE SEASON

We are spending three weeks back and forth between the two daughters houses.

And as with the young grand children

She also baked cookies with the older ones!

Have a Merry Christmas everyone!

From our hearts to yours!

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!

Papas World – Happy Birthday – Sherry!

A Certified Health Coach – A Lab Tech – Payroll – Traffic –

Logistics – Supervisor – Manager – and now a Senior Sales Crodinator

for the Juice Plus Company – HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHERRY!

The many professions she has held in all these years.

The respect of her peers – the leadership – she is the one

they all came to for advice – skill and being capable

to accomplish whatever she set out to do.

Mother – grandmother and MORMOR

Swedish for MOTHERSMOTHER!

Daughters Debby & Tammy

The grand children adore her

The daughters respect and follow her.

To these three – the youngest – it is MORMOR!

Bode – Taylor ( who I think will be taller than her) & Cassidy

Her grandmother immigrated from Sweden –

The proud heritage passed down through her mother

herself and her daughters to the grand kids.

They all seem to have inherited being tall like her

5′ 9″ to be exact.

Sarah – Debby – Sherry – Maddy & Ella

So far Ella has come the closest at 5′ 8 1/2 “

But I see Sarah and Taylor catching her and beyond.

She is my soulmate – my mentor and the reason I live today.

We have been married 38 years.

Today is her birthday –

and we have started a brand new adventure together

We have bought and sold FIVE homes together

And now we are free of ownership

Free to travel where we want

and no worries of a house – taxes or HOA!

So – today – to you my love – HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

The road awaits us – another dream begins –

and one more birthday is here

but you continue to amaze me – you are just as beautiful

as the day we were married.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHERRY!

LOVE PAPA!
