My siblings and I have been blessed to be able to introduce our grandmother to our children. The children just absolutely love her and have this innate sense that she is someone very special. Her house may be small, but even filled with eleven kids it doesn't feel crowded. She has an expansive yard with an absolutely gorgeous garden that the children love to explore, and her empty lot was perfect for a game of "family wiffle ball" on the 4th of July.
Some of my greatest and happiest childhood memories are entangled with the love and acceptance I received from my grandmother. On our trip home it was my hope that some of those happy times and memories might be experienced our children. I think we succeeded.
