Lucky Kids

My kids have no idea how good they have it.

They have a Gigi and Papa less than 5 miles from home who get to see them not just for the big events like birthdays and Christmas but for swim practice and tball games.

They get to sit on the porch on a random Sunday eating ice cream with all their cousins.  Just because.

They get to go to the same school/preschool as their cousins.

When mom and dad need a babysitter, it’s often not a random high schooler coming by, but it’s their aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents who fill in.

They have a Papa who lives so close that he dropped in on Saturday night just to tell them a 15 minute bedtime story.

Their cousins aren’t 10 years older and in a completely different stage of life. Landon has a cousin 3 days older than him. Brooks has a cousin 6 weeks younger and another 5 months younger.  They will be in the same grade and doing the same things with these kids.

It may not last forever, but while they have it, I hope they realize how lucky they are to be so close to an amazing family who get to really be part of their daily life. #hitthejackpot

  1. Gigi and Papa have an idea how good they have it. Three kids with awesome spouses and all within about 5 miles. Thanks for all you do to support keeping the whole gang together. We love you.
