Sunday, our last day in Ohio. After church we got the chance to go over to Grandpa's Farm. Honestly after Grandpa died last March I wasn't sure we would ever even drive by the farm again let alone get to walk the land. The farm was sold very quickly which was best for everyone but also a little sad. I have so many memories there, from slinging creek moss at my sister and cousins, to pulling weeds in the bean fields, to being chased by the bulls... oh the memories come flooding back.
We were blessed to be able to take a walk one more time. Each step brought back a flood of memories. It wasn't quite the same without Grandpa, but definitely still a blessing.
16 months ago all of the great grandchildren of Grandpa lined up on this tree. (scroll down a few pictures on the link to see it). It really is amazing the difference a few months can make. In March there are no leaves in June of course it looks completely different.
Either way we have awesome memories and stories to share with future generations.
We were blessed to be able to walk through one more time. Things have changed since the new owners have moved in but the spirit of the land has not. One last picture of sisters who have shared so many memories together in this special place. We can only hope to maintain the legacy of the one of the most special couples we know.
And it was time to go...
