Ouch, ouch, ouch on the porch...

'"Picking rasberries with my daughter M...attacked by stinging wasps. Several bites on my arm and my left hand. Ouch! The fresh berries are worth it. I think. The baby said, "Let me kiss it Granny. I will make it better."
And this is not all that happened this week on the porch. Last night, I sat on the porch watching four flower girls dance, sing, cartwheel and run on the front sidewalk. M remembered her childhood days on this porch playing frozen tag and sleeping out on the porch with her sisters.
Oh, and I woke up two days ago to sounds of pounding from down stairs. My Hubby pulled up our much maligned cream plush carpet. (puppy training gone bad) revealing 125 year old maple hardwood. So after pulling 10,000 staples, cleaning and staining the floor and picking large area rugs it looks pretty good in this old house. It is of course connected to my old front porch.

Back on the porch...

It is very quiet on my old porch today. The Texans left this morning...early.
The ten ran in packs for the two weeks they have been together.
From our 10 year old to our 2 year old these are happy kids. Play til you drop is the order of the day.
I miss them already. My life is crazy, busy and wonderful with my dear bunch of grandchildren.
I wanted to post the back view of the kids because it shows me always running a little behind!
