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 – Star Wars – Hollywood Studio – Disney – a dream come true!

Outside the entrance to Hollywood studio’s – where we took Ella for her 16th. birthday present.

She opened the envelope at her birthday party in July!

There was a picture of Star Wars and the attraction in Florida at Disney World.

“You will spend one week with grandma and grandpa in Florida!

You will ride down with them at the end of Jan.

and go to Holly Wood studios to see Star Wars

and at the end of the week – for the first time ever

They will put you on a plane and you will FLY back home!

Bode – who his World is Ella – and she is so good to him.

We had done something special for Maddy when she turned 16.

Her wish was to be able to swim with the Manatee’s!

So – in the winter – she and her mom flew down –

and she did just that – and then we all drove back home!

Ella – her little buddy is Bode

He follows her everywhere and she just laughs!

She is so good to him and when she goes to college next year

She wants to become a Phys Ed teacher to the little ones!

She will be excellent – so kind – so much of a good heart.

And a very good soccer player.

We spent the time touring with her also – showing her where my brother lived

and the three town centers of The Villages!

Brownwood of the villages.

We went to see the Manatees and the beach on the West coast

We toured the town where we were staying – and stopped in the coffee shop

to get her a chocolate chip cookie each time – she loved that!

Soon it would be time for her to FLY!

Standing in line as we all watched – her forst time and she handled it like a pro.

Tears welled in my eyes –

my little Ella ( tiny) is what we called her

all grown up and out on her own.

Now – be careful – don’t mix with strange people I worried.

When she was small – she would always come to me – clutch my leg –

climb up into my lap.

I cherish those memories – “IS HE OKAY” she said to her mother

when I had my heart attack.

YES I HAD A LUMP IN MY THROAT

as I went from vantage point to vantage point watching her in the long line.

Ella and Sherry – a trip she will always remember.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

PAPA’S WORLD: livinglifedoingitmyway.blog

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

and at TEN YEARS OLD

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 – setting up the in home class home – VIRTUAL!

This World now has become the ABNORMAL

is now NORMAL!

By the time you have read this – we have already left –

and are in our rented Condo in North Myrtle Beach.

Yesterday we decided to set up the classroom

Where we have been staying at Tammy and Marcus house.

Sherry at the table – our new office desk

We are staying in the basement which is all finished off.

We have our own bedroom and bathroom.

And this room Sherry is in – is a second living room on that floor

which is where the kids have all their toys and a sectional couch.

Now – we have moved our home office into there.

We kept this breakfast table from our home

This is the first living room in the basement –

we saved our breakfast table and brought it here.

You can see the rest of the room in the mirrors.

This is where for the past two months

we have made our home office-

plus spending time with Debby and Mike at Lake Holiday.

We converted it into desks for the twins.

This now will be starting next week their classroom.

Bode – his desk

We also moved this desk out of the playroom and set up for Bode.

I feel bad for him – this being his first year out of pre-school.

I think he needs that in person touch of his first year.

But – time will tell.

He has everything he needs at this desk.

This is our first attempt

I am sure it will change.

But for now – all three are excited.

All three have computer skills – much more than I.

The school starts sometime next week.

We will be here for that and the following couple weeks.

But then we move out and go South.

This is but one page of this chapter in our life being a vagabond.

We will meet new people – make new friends –

and see old friends.

Leaving behind – our hearts remain

Thank you for reading Papa’s World –

Papas World – Wife – Mother – Inspiration – Sherry!

I knew from the first moment she was the one –

We dated a year and one half and then were married.

I have never looked back – and we raised two sets of kids.

Lol – this is funny and so true!

We have bought and sold FIVE houses together in 38 years!

That is averaged to about every 7 1/2 years!

Now – we are staying with both daughters!

Oldest grand daughter – Maddy and oldest daughter Debby with Sherry.

We have plans – not to buy right away – to search – different areas.

To explore South to warmer winters.

But – to also stay with the kids.

We have set up a base camp at Tammy and Marcus house

with the three littlest grand kids.

We help out with the kids – when we are not traveling.

But – the inspiration for all of this is Sherry.

Once she makes up her mind – it is full sailing ahead.

We just celebrated her birthday – 71 years young!

A certified health coach from Dr. Sears!

A Senior Sales Coordinator in The Juice Plus Company!

A leader of her team from across the U.S.A.

“TEAM GENERATIONS”

Made up of Grandparents – children and grand children.

http://www.sf.juiceplus.com

At 71 years old – Sherry has become the inspiration to hundreds of people.

From Tumeric shots to growing plants and veggies for the Tower Garden

to teaching and talking health and nutrition

to walking and running –

to taking calls – emails and texts and zoom and voxer

She is always helping others!

Sherry – for the 38 years we have been married

inspiration – mother – teacher – corp manager – logistics- supervisor

team leader – and family idol –

She has motivated me to be the best I can be.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Wife – Mother – Inspiration – SHERRY!
