With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: a Little Work and a lot of Play with the Grandkids

a Little Work and a lot of Play with the Grandkids

Our tiny little pond is just the right size.
Year after year, the grandchildren love to feed the goldfish, listen to the water from the fountain, watch the birds bathe or rest on the edge and just enjoy the tranquil spot under the tree branches.

A trip to the pet store for a two dollar bag of fish and by the end of the season these little 2-inch fellows will head to the lake at 6-7 inches long.

The afternoon includes some catching practice, sidewalk chalking,
puppy playing and family lovin'.

Then dinner and more playtime with cousins.
Ryan, Silas, Noah, Cambrie, Keri, Caleb, Jared, Brenna & Shaela

Looks like a lot of fun! I've always wanted a pond, but then I think about the trouble and leave the idea alone. When my grandchildren are older maybe I'll have to do that for fun like you!

A lovely family you have there. I also enjoyed your profile description. Faith is important to me, as well and a newly found love of photography since I began blogging.

What fun you had doing a little work as well. Seems everyone had a great time. This is a super way to have family quality time. Those children are precious.

Your grandchildren are beautiful and you depicted your joy and delight with them so well. This is one hat I am not wearing, yet,even though it certainly could be(I am probably older than you are!)

I did get your kind messages by the way...some days the computer places far down on the list.But I eventually get to it.

What fun! I need to go get more goldfish for our little pond, but, alas, it has a leak in it somewhere.
