I’m really looking forward to the next few weeks.
In two weeks, we will be getting our first visitors here in Georgia. Pauline and Ryan and their two children, Maddie and Lex, will finish their tour in Indonesia late this week. They’re going to Spain for a week on the way back to the United States and they will arrive in Atlanta the Friday evening after that.
They’ll be here for a week, staying at Lake Jackson, about 45 minutes from here.
I really like the way Pauline plans her vacations. Instead of renting hotel rooms, wherever possible she rents vacation houses so that her husband and children have plenty of room to move around and enjoy themselves.
The wonderful part of it is that at nearly 4 years old, Maddie is starting to be more and more aware of what’s around her and ought to be at an age where she will remember her experiences. As for Lex, when we first saw him in Seattle in November, he was little more than a month old. By the time he arrives in Georgia, he will be a little more than eight months old.
He’s not really walking or talking yet, but he sits up, he moves around and he has a big smile.
One of the things Ryan wants to do with Maddie at Lake Jackson is take her fishing. I think I’ll probably go along, even though I have never been fishing in my entire life. I don’t know if I will catch anything, but it will be fun to see my granddaughter’s reaction to a new experience.
It’s going to be a great summer.
