Eight years ago, we relocated to be close to our daughter and grandson.  At the time, Corson was a toddler of 2 1/2 years old.  We knew we had a short window span, before he was spending all his time with friends, but it seems to have happened in a blink of an eye.  Corson is creeping up on me in height, with only a few inches to go :(  He has lost his sweet chubby cheeks and they have been replaced with long arms and legs and a quick witt (compliments of his Papa).  I'm glad we have had this time with him, but I will always miss the little fellow, who had to put his hand on the wall, to climb up the step in our front hall and I still have his signature on our living room wall in his best kindergarten printing, that I can't bring myself to clean off.  I don't want to blink again, or he will be going off to university *sigh*.

It was a fabulous weekend and what a treat to see our grandson and his friends spend it OUTDOORS, with not a tehno gadget in site.  It helps that we live on the shore of Lake Ontario and that the creek is at the bottom of our grandson's street.  They are old enough now to explore on their own, with the comfort of a cell phone for safety.  Fishing is the current favourite pastime for the boys and they enjoy catching and releasing fish at the creek.  It's summer, the way boys should spend it :)
