"BAMPA"

Life is settling back to normal around here except that I don't have to get the kids up for seminary or school anymore. I'm sad that everyone has left but I have some very fond memories to keep me going. Some of my favorite memories are from my grandson, Evan. Kira taught him to say "grandpa" before he got here and it quickly became one of his favorite words. Every time I turned around I hear, "bampa, bampa, bampa...". I loved it. It was great because he really liked to be with me and we had many opportunities to do things together. He even helped me to fold laundry. Don't you just love the way he is looking at me? I bought a brand new suit not too long ago and I wore it for the first time two Sundays ago. Following the seminary graduation they had snacks and I was holding Evan as he was enjoying a chocolate chip cookie. I forgot to clean the mess off my suite when I got home and then this Sunday we were running late so I just threw on my jacket as I was running out the door. Once I was at church I noticed the big chocolate chip stain on the front of my jacket and I didn't even care. A few people commented on the stain and I just proudly responded, "yup, that's from my grandson".
