Grandpa’s Treasures

It has been a while since I indulged myself by sharing photos of my grandsons… I think the title says it all…

We have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I manage a wealth management firm that I founded in 2003. My Beloved is a Special Education teacher for Kindergartners and First Graders.

    Well, it’s high time!! They have grown a bunch and they are cuter than ever. Yes, you have much to be grateful for, you Grateful Man!! Thanks for sharing – – – this is a gift for us Moms on Mother’s Day weekend – and us Grammys who are missing the proximity of our children and grandangels! 🙂

    Adorable- you must miss them terribly!

  3. russtowne says:

    Thank you, Joan. We do, despite seeing the twins every 3 months or so for about 10 days and seeing them on Skype weekly. When I was growing up, one set of grandparents lived on the other coast. Neither they nor my large family had the money to fly to see each other. Consequently, since about the age of 3-1/2 I only saw my grandfather twice before he died. I’m doing my best to not let that occur with my grandchildren.

      I’m doing the Skype thing as well but there really is no substitute for the real thing. Good for you on making the trip every 3 months! I am more like your grandfather…trips are not as frequent as I would like…but boy do I treasure them!

      • russtowne says:

        I agree that while Skype is great it’s no substitute for being with them in person, hugging and playing with them, making them laugh, watching them sleep, explore, learn and grow.
        Trips are never as frequent as we’d like either, and we too treasure them when they occur!

      Wise decision.
