Wednesday morning a best friend of ours was going to Richmond to do last minute shopping so I decided to hitch a ride across the mountain. Any chance I get to go and see my 8 year old granddaughter, Eloise, even if for just overnight, I go for it!
After I went with her mom to get her from school, she went directly to the computer to do her special math homework. There were also two “ economics” papers she had to do...amazing! She LOVES her math assignments via the computer. The program is “Kirie.” My, how school has changed! She’s doing the typical 3rd grade math...times tables and division...and playing the recorder/song flute. I can remember doing all of these in 3rd grade... which now seems like the dark ages it was so long ago.
After she finished her homework, her pal, Georgia, stopped by to play and eat dinner. We adore Georgia and feel like she and Eloise are growing up way too fast. Eloise wanted a little tree for her bedroom so Mom went out after school and got her this one. She was ecstatic. This morning we all got up, had breakfast, went with Eloise and her mom to take her to school, and then my friend and I left for home.
When we got to the little town of Stuart’s Draft, the decision was made to stop at the Amish cheese shop. As we pulled into the parking lot, this sign company was there putting up a BIG new sign on the side of the building. Their truck looked huge in that little slot.
It was not until we were walking out the door that I looked around and saw the reflection of the truck, the cones, and all the cars in the window. I immediately pulled out the trusty old iPhone 4 (I refuse to upgrade because I am one of those lucky ones who has unlimited data, but if I update, I lose it!) How many times have I said...if you’ll just take the time to look around yourself, you will be surprised at what you might see. I never seem to be disappointed.
This post is definitely linked up with James’s Weekend Reflections.
