We got up to the sounds of people getting ready. We had stayed another night at Hubs Aunt's house and the girls were getting ready for school. Up we got for coffee and showers. We packed our bags and headed to Grandma and Grandpa's house. Grandpa spends his time in bed. He is weak and tired and hangs out in the bed. He isn't able to get up because he is so weak. There is a chair that sits by his bed so anyone can sit a spell and visit with him while he is awake. He will call out for something to eat like ice cream or pudding. He still has an incredibly funny sense of humor and to see him giggle is priceless. He was visiting with Hubs and I asked if I could kiss his forehead, he pauses and says, "No, I have poison oak"
Hubs is cracking up and nearly falls off the chair!
Grandpa likes to tease me.
Hubs had good times with grandpa over the last few days. Saying goodbye was incredibly difficult. Hubs kept telling grandpa he loved him and he just wouldn't say it back.
The uncertainty of his future is incredibly tough for us, we know not where his heart is.
But, we know that Hubs gave him all he needs to know to be certain.
As we left, tears fell from our eyes. I was rather surprised at my emotional state, but as I looked at my husband and saw the pain in his face, it tore my heart. What an incredibly difficult time as we drove away.
Our trip together was good. Hubs and I spent a lot of time talking and getting reacquainted as we have been so busy with the girls we could forget who we are.
We stopped at Cave Junction at Taylor's. It is hubs favorite place to stop. I think it is a Luiz family tradition, because any time any of the family goes through, they stop there. It is the Portuguese in them I guess.
We came home to Bugg waiting on the porch, headed out to her volleyball game. Papa on his way with Peanut, from basketball practice.
We got Peanut ready and headed to the high school, for volleyball and for a choir concert!
Thankfully, they were both at the same place.
Here are just two pictures from the evening. But, the girls are great. I am so proud!
Bugg~the Junior Varsity team won the conference.
She played in the varsity game as well and they are in 2nd place. A play off game will be on Wednesday.
Peanut in advanced choir. They sang some original songs by a local musical composer about dust bunnies and socks, but oh well.
It was entertaining.
