Getting ready to leave.. πŸ˜ͺ

Saying goodbye is always been so hard for me. I cry like a baby πŸ‘Ά! I will miss my family but I start a new adventure. It has been a great summer in spite of Covid 19. I’ve seen my Mom, my 2 sons, their wives and all 6 of my wonderful grandchildren. I have been fortunate to have seen all my siblings, my aunts and their families.

I will miss the smile on Evelyn’s face when she picks her carrots πŸ₯• 😒 She brings me joy!

Sweet little face
Lots of carrots πŸ₯•

Got some more work done on the wall. Hoping to maybe finish the wall before we leave.

Finished the cherry πŸ’ blossom tree

Evelyn wanted shrimp so her Mom bought her some and they were getting the tank ready.
