Tears welled up in my eyes as I watched my Aunt Doris waving good bye from the curb of the airport yesterday. The only thing that kept me from an all out bawl was the fact that today another willing victim arrived.
Welcome Grandpa Devensky!
He showed up on my doorstep mid afternoon and wasted no time getting to work. Within minutes Ben was out of my hair. From the back room I heard peals of laughter.
When Adam and Jack returned later he took turns giving both older boys horse back rides. I’m not sure how he did it. I don’t think my knees could handle the weight of those boys and they are half the age of his knees!
He also managed to study both of the twins, holding, rocking, feeding and making them smile.
And now he is upstairs cleaning up the dishes from dinner.
Ahhhhh to have so many family members show up in droves to help me this summer. I am one lucky woman.
