to 7th grade, so the Wal Mart sitting, I think, has past.
So when one of the kids visits us and asks for the cans
of beads or lipstick.....or breaks out singing our
cat song.....I know I am making happy
memories with them, just not at the amusement
park as I had planned before I was a Gramma with CFS.
