Today we will  be joining Ashley Pichea at her blog Life by Ashley Pichea, where I’m guest posting about learning to enjoy the ordinary when visiting your grandchildren.  You can even learn to do this when visiting your children too for that matter!

I knew I was going to write this post before we went to Seattle in June, so I made sure to take lots of photos I could use on the blog.

We are used to traveling long distances to visit our grandchildren.  Until a year ago, we didn’t live near any of them.  Now, we have moved so we live in the same town as one of our daughters, her husband and two of our grandchildren.  It has given me a new perspective on the long distance visits.

If you are in the position of needing to visit your grands because you don’t live close to them, learn to enjoy the ordinary events.  When you think about it, that’s what grandparents do with their local grandchildren most of the time.

Join me at Ashley’s blog for the rest of the post.
