Living at the cabin makes it such a fun place for grandchildren. Our little cottage is surrounded by pines and mountains. About 20 feet from the backdoor there's a small stream. It's called Fountain Creek and it flows into the Arkansas River. It's crystal clear and serves as the home for small trout. On occasion the grandsons are able to talk grandpa in to pulling out the fishing poles and it's such fun to listen to them squeal when a small fish is pulled from the water, glistening in the sun and flipping water on them. Of course, it's "catch and release" here.
Two weeks ago Jane and I were keeping Atticus and Conrad for Jamie while she was gaining extensive training for her job. We stayed in Parker at their house for the first couple of days and then brought them back to the cabin near the end of the week.
deja vu. EXACTLY the experience I had with his mother when she was three. However, Conrad continued to walk...eventually was worn out....and carried by grandpa.
