Rest in Peace Grandpa Bob – We Love You

This morning after I walked Robert to school, I did my computer stuff and ate breakfast.  We had a comp day today, so no work!  Once Ryan was up and had done his morning computer stuff, we headed out to post on the bike.  I got my allergy shot and then we went to Clothing Sales for a few things.  Then it was back home again for a bit before we headed to Benson, 1/2 hour from here, to go to A&W for lunch.  It was a beautiful day for riding and, as always, I enjoyed riding with my Sweetie!  Lunch was good and then we headed back home to get the backpack.  We went to the quilt shop here in town and I found some really cute fabric to make a wall hanging with the thing I cross stitched for Robert’s teacher.  Then we went to Ryan’s college bookstore so he could get his books for his summer classes (Spanish 1 the first 5 weeks, Archaeology on Saturdays for 8 weeks, and Pottery for the second 5 weeks).  And then it was a stop at the grocery store for taco cheese for the tacos that I didn’t make for dinner tonight.  After a while at home (oh, and I did laundry today, too), we went and got Robert from Child Time, went and picked up my bike from the bike shop (new tires and handlebar grip tape), got a car wash – or would it be a van wash? – and then to Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner.

And we got the phone call this afternoon.  My grandfather – Grandpa Bob – has passed away.  I am very sad, but I also know that he is in a better place now and not suffering anymore.  Grandpa Bob, you are loved by many and will be missed by all.  I know you are in Heaven now, looking down on us.  Robert took the news a lot better than we expected, although I don’t know if it’s fully sunk in or not.  We had family cuddle time on Ryan’s lap and Ryan told him.  He cried for a few minutes but then went about his business of being a very active 5-year-old. Mom,  Dad, Carol, and Grandma – we are sending you big hugs from Arizona until we get there in person.
