Memories Made and Yet to Come

Today, and pretty much every day, I’m thinking about my 2 beautiful granddaughters, Isabelle (Izzy) and Madeleine (Maddy), who live in Cambridge, England.  We had a wonderful time with them, when they were here, in Oshawa, with us last August and we’re counting the days until we see them again, in October.

On September 15, I’ll be flying to Norway for a fall photo tour, and then flying into Heathrow, on October 1st, where I’ll meet up with Bonnie and my sister, Randi.  We’ll spend 2 weeks in the UK and we’re really looking forward to spending time with Izzy and Maddy.  This will be the first time that Randi has met them.  Unfortunately, we’ll miss Izzy’s 12th birthday, on October 20th, but we’ll make up for it while we’re there.  Bonnie and Izzy are pen pals, writing real letters back and forth, so I’m sure that they’ll be making plans.

    Oh, Leif, what a delight to see the pictures of you and Bonnie and those adorable granddaughters. This is the first time I have seen pictures of them, and what beautiful young ladies they are. Thanks so much for sharing these precious pictures.
    Enjoy your time with them in October once again.
    Love and hugs to you and Bonnie.

      So great to hear from you Connie. I hope all is good with you. We will also see Mike’s almost 2-year-old son Oliver and his 2nd son is overdue, so should be any day now. It will be great to see everyone again.
