Pierson pulled a world puzzle and showed Grandpa where Taiwan was. Grandpa then showed him about where Ohio was in the US. It was precious to watch them interact.
Pierson was amazed by the coyote handing on the wall. He said. "Puppy!" We tried the best we could to explain to him that it wasn't someones pet. I think he understood, but you never know!
I don't know if I can put this picture into words. This is what sits by Grandpa's door. These symbolize to me his life. He is a humble man. One who has never needed to be flashy. He lives a modest life that has been filled with honest hard work. He is a smart man one with wisdom and knowledge beyond my comprehension. He is generous man who shares his love and support. He is gentle man, one who makes those around him feel calm. He is a strong man, one who makes one feel safe. He is my Grandfather, who I am proud of.
Maylin pretended to take pictures of Grandpa and then he did the same for her. I actually saw him grin and stick out his tongue for a 'picture'! So cute.
Maylin loved Grandpa's cat. She was relatively gentle with him, however he didn't stay near her too long.
All to soon it was time to get back in the car and head for NC. The kids tried several stall tactics including getting leaves from Grandpa's trees to take home with us. Grandpa and his gentle kindness helped them pick as many as it took to satisfy them. None-the-less the inevitable happened and back in the car we went. 10 hours later we were home full of memories and happy hearts.
