About Me

My photo
Delta, British Columbia, Canada
I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.

My Little Guy!

I understand it's Grandparents Day so I'll post these photos just for today so you can see why I love being Gramma! Noah is the happiest little boy and hardly ever fusses (although he does have his moments). You can just see how much he is loved by his Mom and Dad (and me) and how much love he has for them. What a mass of curls! What eyes! What a smile! These are some shots from when Jamie and Jason took him to the Vancouver Aquarium.

Omigod, he's adorable. That photo of him from behind would make a wonderful painting.

What a gorgeous little smile. Don't you just love him to pieces?

I just spent the day with my little munchkins as well.

i love the new song choice by mary wells. i used to sing this song into a hair brush everytime i heard it. this is one of the very few songs that i knew the words to. i think i'll stay a while and sing.

Yes Josie, that's my #1 daughter Jamie and my #1 son-in-law Jason. I can't believe she's going to be 30 end of October!

Noah is absolutely adorable! Happy Grandparents Day Leslie! And you've selected the perfect song...My Guy...I love it! :)

My best friend and I would listen to music and lipsync all night long...this was Rebecca who came to visit me last month...we had such fun together when we were kids...she reminded me that one of her favorites was Liberty Valance...who would have known?

Josie said...

Leslie, I am still at my daughter's place, trying to hold all the "frayed ends" together. She's such a worrier....! Talk to you soon.

leslie said...

Thanks Sylvia, I think it's adorable, too. Actually, Josie thinks it'd make a great painting. Have a great day - I'm off to do several chores.

leslie,

you are so blessed to be getting ready to do so much traveling, but i know you've paid your dues working and sacrificing all of these years. you definitely deserve it. i hope to hook up with you and suzanne and willy in the spring. it will depend on when in the spring due to me being in school and mid-terms, finals, etc. we shall see as time gets closer.

it takes courage to step out in faith and do whatever, but we all can do it.

are you traveling with someone? do you know people in those places you're traveling to or are you going on your own?

you've taken steps already by retiring, losing weight, and now your upcoming trips. YOU GO GIRL!
go forth and enjoy life while doing it, one day at a time.

Nice photos, Leslie. Nice soundtrack to accompany it, too. Your 'guy' is a mighty lucky little guy.

Cheers, Ian

leslie said...

Thanks Ian and Sylvia - you guys keep me going, that's for sure. And Noah will keep me going tomorrow night when I babysit him while Mom & Dad go out for a nice evening on their own.
