Last week, Granddad came for a visit. It was so good to see him since we hadn't seen him since July! He arrived Wednesday, October 27, and we kept him busy from the moment he arrived.
Wednesday evening, Granddad rode over to Yorba Linda with us since Caleb had Element (Wednesday night Bible Study for 5th and 6th graders). Kerry took Granddad and the three little ones back to the house while I stayed with Caleb getting to serve as a driver for his group.
Thursday morning, we headed to Tanaka Farms. The boys had a blast picking out pumpkins and petting all the goats in the petting zoo. It brought back sad memories for them since we had talked about getting a goat or two if we had stayed in Florida. They still had fun. In the afternoon, the boys and I had some official school time while Granddad took some time to work.
Friday morning, we took Granddad to the beach. We hadn't been in awhile, and the boys were thrilled to play in the sand and the cold water. That evening, Granddad got to watch Caleb's baseball practice. We ended the evening by watching Prince Caspien. I was amazed that the three oldest ones stayed awake for the entire movie.
Saturday was supposed to be Josiah's soccer game but it was cancelled due to rain. We still went to the park to let him show Granddad how he plays soccer complete with all of his gear. They had more fun on the playground than they did on the soccer field. Granddad treated us to a nice lunch, and then it was time to take him back to the airport. We were sad to see him go but are looking forward to seeing Nana tomorrow night.
