Our World Tuesday: how soon they grow up

A blogging friend e-mailed me, because I had mentioned "the little ones" in our family, and asked me how many little ones there are. Some of them aren't as little as these photos from my archives show, and yet I think about this summertime visit and it doesn't seem so very long ago to me. How long ago was it? Well, the young fellow in the first photo is now 10, and will be 11 later this year. He's the eldest of our four grandsons.
See the tiny little bush behind him? It is almost as large as the big one beside it now. The old board fence is a thing of the past, replaced by "Lindy's fence" of green chain link.
Our granddaughters in the next two photos (taken the same day) are getting to be pretty, sweet young girls now. They haven't been babies for several years. How time flies!
See the yellow chair in the foreground of the last photo? It has been in the living room for quite a while so I could see how I like the color. I've decided I like it, and some day I'll have my grandmother's rocking chair upholstered in that same yellow, and put it in the living room.
First, however, I'm working on (i.e. thinking and planning) a kitchen reno. Our world will be full of dust and debris for a while (soon, I hope).

I watch them grow as the years go by - all of us older as the time flies. Good luck on your reno! Will you be able to use the kitchen while it progresses?

Cute grandkids. They do grow up fast, don't they?

Oh how adorable. My grandkids are all huge six footers now. My great grandson is five. I may need to rent me a few babies one of these days - babies are the BEST!!!!!

Time flies and and how they grow fast! I wonder what they'll say on these treasured photos!

Good luck with you kitchen reno!

You have beautiful grandkids. And how fast they indeed grow. Seems like it was only yesterday that they were sitting on your lap and the next thing you know, they are taller than you. Have a great week ahead.

I am always amazed at how much faster grandkids seem to grow up, as compared to our own kids!

Wonderful shots of the beautiful little ones.

The older they get, the harder it is to corral them for photos it seems. And boy they do grow fast don't they?

I love the last shot. Little ones seem to love other little ones a whole bunch. - Margy

I can't believe how quickly children grow up. Lovely photos, Kay - they all look so happy.
