That beaming smiling face is my grandson Jordan who will be four next month. You can just barely see the proud Grandpa in the background. My step son and his wife, and of course Jordan, mysteriously appeared this evening. We have not seen them for a little more than a year.
Young Jordan’s Daddy was in Iraq, and then back in North Carolina for a little while afterward. It seems like ages ago that we last saw them. You can imagine our reaction when we were trying to figure out who was pulling into the drive way. Then as soon as they got out, the whole family, dogs and all went out to greet them. I was amazed at how much the little tyke grew.
We visited for quite some time, and I took Jordan out in the back yard to play ball with Destiny, our Red Healer. Both of them were in seventh heaven, Jordan laughing and chasing Destiny around to get the ball, and Destiny dropping it just in time for Jordan to kick it for her again. Destiny prefers soccer balls, why I don’t know, so it was easier for Jordan to kick it and throw it. They really had fun, and as you can tell so did I.
Jordan’s Momma found a frog with the help of Annie, one of our Chihuahuas. Naturally she had to chase Blinda around with it, then Jordan, then Jordan’s Daddy. I was laughing so hard, here’s this young lady chasing the boys around with a frog, and they were acting as bad as Blinda about it. We finally got Jordan to play with the frog a little bit, he at least touched it and chased it around the yard. All little boys should play with frogs at some time.
Their going to be around for about a week, so we get to see them a few more times before they have to go back to North Carolina. Hopefully we will get to spend some of the weekend with them, and get some pictures of the crew. So important, for Jordan’s Daddy is due to redeploy shortly.
Thanks for listening, I just had to share.
