Twas the week before school, and all through the house, all creatures were stirring, even our “mouse”. As we filled up our time with last minute summer fun, my camera fearlessly snapped, attempting the catch all the moments in the sun.
We began with a trip to Cleveland, Ohio. Back to our roots, down the red-brick road to Lamson Ave. where my parents have lived for the past 26 years of their life. We love visiting Grandma and Papa. She always has the best treats ready to consume, plans to fill up our fun days, and beds made where her little ones once lay. We had bee-utiful weather this week, in fact, we had the best day for the beach. Yes, the beach of Mentor Headlands, one I frequented growing up, and lo and behold, there were even waves that day! As I tucked the kids in at night, I couldn’t help but reflect on the changes that time brings. Many things in Bedford have changed over the years, but some have not, and those struck me the most. The same ladies who serve at a co-op nursery school, the same lady who lives at the end of the street, the same parents who loved my siblings and I with all their hearts, now pour forth the same love into their grandkids. Jesus, you have blessed us beyond words.
