My only grand daughter, Jaina, was enthralled with her new cousin, returning to Hagen over and over just to whisper "Hi, Baby". She was so gentle and so curious. Amazing to see the natural mothering instinct in an almost 2 year old. She is a sweetheart!
And my Jacen. You know him already. Since Hagen wasn't big enough to play yet, he didn't hold too much interest for an active 5 year old. Yes, nice to have another boy in the family, but "he's too tiny to do anything fun, Nana". Oh you just wait, Jacen! Such beautiful babies we have been blessed to have in our family. Being a Nana is about the very best job I have ever had... more like a gift actually.
Well, are you ready for the coming week ahead? Farm Chicks here we come!! Monday and Tuesday we will be finishing our mock set up and packing the truck. Wednesday we will all take the day to pull things together at home and pack our own necessities. Early Thursday morning we will rev up the truck and 3 cars for the caravan drive up to Spokane. It should take us between 8 to 9 hours depending on the number of stops and how fast the truck can go. Friday is the set up all day for the actual sale on Saturday and Sunday. Sunday night we tear everything down, hopefully not having much to pack up to take home. Monday, the long drive back to Portland, unpacking and back to life as we know it. We will take you along for the entire week via our blog. Tune in and join us for all of the festivities. I know we will need your support and encouragement as our aging bodies start giving out on us!!! We look forward to sharing all of our experiences with you!
