i live a day's drive away from my grandchildren so i don't see them as often as i like. they are young. and each time we visit, they've changed. eamon is playing sax now and we went to his first band concert. lucy is growing so tall and she was anxious to show me all the ways she can jump off of the stone wall in their front yard (that way was backwards). and finn in talking in full clear sentences. these wooden blocks were their mum's and uncles. each visit we add more blocks to our relationship.
