Last year we sent the Bears to grandma Buzz’s house for the summer.
It was nice to have them safe and sound while we moved from Charlotte to Charlottesville. They had a wonderful time doing arts + crafts, performing in summer theater, learning new trades and eating way too much candy!

When my mom came this weekend, she offered to take the Bears back to Hillsborough while we open the bakery so we’ll have a little less to worry about on the home front.
Here’s an email I received last night about their trip:
Thrilled to be here! Running all around "I remember this" "Are we going to do that?"
They are saying a lot of "My dad allows that" If I say we don’t run across the dining room table. We had this last year. I know he isn’t THAT lenient–I think they are trying to trick Grammy.
A little later she g-chatted me this:
Barbara: How strict do ya’ll want me to be? I have them for a while so I can’t be too lenient. Paw Paw put them in their seatbelts in the car on the way home.
me: they need their disciplined or they get out of control!
Barbara: yes that is how I feel. Not as strict as you are but I have to lay down lines
And then this morning I received this news:
The bears behaved beautifully in the car and were so thrilled to arrive in Hillsborough. They did a lot of bouncing on their bed (Kath’s old bed) but finally settled down to sleep.
However, we’ve had a bit of trouble with breakfast this morning.
Beaker said, "Grammy, I can’t drink this milk. It isn’t organic."
And Churton said, "I don’t want that toast. It’s not Great Harvest Bread."
And Bocker said, "I would never eat plain old cereal. I only eat granola that my dad made in his bakery."
Sigh. They are off playing. I’m hoping if they get good and hungry enough, they will eat Grammy’s food.
Looks like Grammy is up for a wild summer!!
