Our Week with Mimi

My grandmother has been spending the week with us this week. I do not take for granted what a gift it is for my children to have a close relationship with their great grandmother. They love playing with her and will have great memories of time spent with her. John Curtis enjoyed getting to stay home with her while I drove Sophie around and ran all the errands he usually has to come along on. I, too, cherish the time I get to spend with Mimi and she was great help. I would come home from work at lunch to a clean kitchen and folded laundry. Maybe Mimi should move in with us. My parents had to drive a lot to get Mimi to me and back home again and I'm thankful for the effort they put out for us to have this time together.
