The Other Side

After a little bit of time to catch our breath, get library cards, request new checks, all that good "moving in" kind of stuff,

we zipped off to visit Aaron's grandparents in their new home. 

Last summer they moved out of the house they had called home for almost sixty years.

Now they live in a lovely retirement village where everybody knows their names,

and soon everybody knew our names, too!

I hope I look this good at 88 and 90 years old.  Time with them was so precious.

Then we took a quick trip over to visit Aaron's Dad and Mom #2. 

We're in a season of quick visits with hugs and not a whole lot of time to sit and chat, but this couple were so gracious and made the most of every moment we had together. 
And we're planning on lots more time together in the future!
