Leaving Ronan. . .

It's always hard to say goodbye to the kids, but we had to do that last night. We took them out to eat at their favorite restaurant and we had a really great meal. In addition, Jocelyn and I had some margaritas, which were very good.

I have some pictures I took this week. Ronan is really into trains and has quite a few of the Thomas the Train track and accessories. Anyone who comes in is asked, "Play trains?" He likes to build track and then "crash" the trains. He enjoyed the new toy we brought him as well. We got him a remote control fire engine. He likes that as well, probably because it makes noise. This particular remote control just has two buttons. . . forward and turn, so he learned how to use it quickly.

Poor Whiskey. He had an encounter with a rose bush and started scratching and biting at his flank, so he has to wear a collar to keep him from bothering it. At least it is one of those inflatable ones. He actually didn't seem to mind wearing it. He took a day or two to warm up to me, but he does remember Grandma. He was coming to me by the end of the week.

Thursday morning we took Ronan and Jocelyn to the mall and we went to the "Build-A-Bear Workshop" where Ronan made his new horse. Actually he wasn't too "into" it, but he did help pick out the sound and put a "heart" in Banjo, which is what he named it. Banjo fits right into the stroller, so we walked him around the mall.

As always, our time with them seems all too short. It will be many months before we see them all again, but we will have plenty to do and see to fill the days. We will miss them though.

This morning we left Virginia and headed to Indiana. We are at the fairgrounds in Gallipolis, Ohio, for the night. Tomorrow we will arrive at Summit Lake State Park near our old home. That is where we stay when we are in the area for doctor appointments.

Till next time. . .
