My favorite little boy in the whole wide world is home again after four weeks of vacation with his grandparents in Florida. Does the kid have it made or what? I think he grew an inch and put on 5 pounds. That's what Grandma's cookin' (and endless banana splits) will do to you.

A few days ago Mickey Mouse called to let us know that Pa Pa had taken him to the barber shop and let him get a crew cut. I was not thrilled with the news because I love his red hair combed oh-so-neatly, but it actually turned out a lot better than last year's flat top fiasco.

Mr. C took us to Cracker Barrel last night to celebrate Mickey Mouse's return. On the way to the restaurant my little man read aloud to us from The Prince and the Pauper. I was glad that he hadn't forgotten how to read after a month out of school.

This morning it was wonderful to see him sitting in his seat at the table eating his breakfast. Our home just isn't the same when someone's chair is emtpy.

Have I told you my fondness for red-headed boys? As a teacher for many years, the red headed boys were ALWAYS and without exception the friskiest, rascaliest, giggliest, most endearing of them all. Never were they the most well behaved, and I loved that. So much spirit that I would discipline and then turn around and stiffle a laugh. Love them to death.

Yours is a cutie! And I am so glad that he is home safe and sound with great memories. Now Grandma and Grandpa get a well deserved rest :)

How great to have him back!!! I'm sure you missed him tremendously, but it sounds like he had a wonderful time!!

I'm glad to hear he's back home. I know what you mean about one of the young 'uns being gone and things just not seeming the same. I feel that way too. It took a lot of getting used to when my son began courting and was gone all day at work then gone every evening at his girlfriend's house. Now it's strange when he is home...LOL!!
