I can’t believe that 17 wonderful days have gone, and my little treasure is going home tomorrow, how I am going to miss him………..he never stops talking so simply getting used to the silence again will be a challenge within itself, although I have to say it is one of the things before he arrived that I find most precious, I love to live within my own silence, my dog and I get on really fine, we tend to speak the same language !!
Over the past days we have done so much, without being in a rush for anything, we have made beautiful memories once again over the summer days and pretty pictures to keep that vision in our minds,, we have walked the beach, gone on treasure troves for shells and pebbles we have little boxes and bags all around the house, we keep these for a later date, for a diy day in the winter, we have ridden in a boat and been pirates for the day, we have afternoons of colouring and playing with counting cards, it is so great to see him advance with his skills, to see how it is more automatic to him to count in his head, and not always using his beautiful little fingers……………he has learnt the art of a puzzle and now enjoys a game of snakes and ladders, this is making memories for all of us, and brings some older ones back again for me, how lucky I am to have a double childhood memory bank, my boys and now my little man, we have even been cops and robbers a few days, although he has no desire to be a normal police man, he wants to be a swat agent !! We have spoken in English and Spanish and he learns something everyday………….
I look at my grandson and long for the next holidays to be here, to hear him tell me what is going on his little life, and the next visit will be after he has done his first term as a 1st year junior…… that should be fun, because he really can tell a tale, although he is not here near to me, he is always in my heart, I think of him as a little flower, which I watch growing, watering him with all the love I can, for him to be the fine beautiful little boy I love so dearly.
