Isaac and Eloise LOVE hanging out at Grandfather’s. They helped Pa pick oranges, and Eloise licked each one after lining them all up. They climb trees and race trucks down the hill. Isaac cracked open a geode Chris bought him at the meteor crater and it is glorious with sparkly crystals. I let them play endless alphabet downstairs on the iPad and the bect thing I knew they were on the couch in the same room as Grandfather. “They’re good kids,” he complimented, despite Eloise’s shrieks and their general noisiness. Isaac cried when we had to go back to the beach. But we’ll be back soon!
