Serene Green

Just returned from a fun week with our high energy, 8 year old grandson Camilo, who needed a little company while his big sister, Olivia, was out of town with her mother at a highland dance competition.  Having raised one daughter, and not having daily contact with little boys, being around Cami for a week was an eye opening experience.  What energy!!  Up at 6 a.m. like clockwork, computer time, breakfast, in the pool for a couple of hours, out of the pool and cycle down the street to play and have lunch, cycle home, in the pool again, dinner, basketball at the top of the street or baseball down at the field, or maybe an hour or two of artwork, a little tv, bath and bed and out like a light!  And on top of all that, he's quite a little photographer as well, as evidenced by my profile photo......that's right, taken by no other than our very talented Camilo!  (And sister Olivia is equally as talented and energetic!)  They sure make it easy to be proud grandparents!

Thank heavens he has a lot of friends to share his energy burning days with and a father who is more than happy to play soccer, basketball or whatever with him when he gets home from his 12 hour workday.  I'm not sure I would have made it through the week without all their help since it was way beyond my normal pace.

I wonder if that's why I awoke this morning with serenity on my mind.  It must be time to chill out with some beautiful green scenes.
