Every weekday the wife or I walk down the street and around the corner to meet Gracie at her bus stop. Like clockwork the bus arrives at 2:16 p.m., Gracie jumps off the bus and greets us with a smile and the story of the day.

Here's the around the corner thing with Gracie skipping to catch up to Grammy.

She's carrying her backpack with wheels on it. A simple backpack wasn't enough as it had to have wheels and Gracie just had to have it for the first day of school. Since we bought most if not all of her school clothes this year we figured what the hell, we might as well go all the way. Besides the wheels the backpack also had to have all of the Disney princesses on it and it does. If we don't spoil the kid who will? Somebody has to do it.

Now here's a picture. It reminds me of the geese I often see crossing the road. Head goose in front. Little goose takes up the rear.

I'm using the maximum zoom on the camera's telephoto lens to capture these moments. If they're a bit fuzzy you'll know why.
Wifey's dad used to tell her that she talked too much. They say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Here's Gracie bending the wife's ear on the day's events in first grade. Like her grammy, Gracie is a talker. Together the two can talk up a storm. And they usually do.
Gracie and the wife now see of me taking pictures. You'll need to click on this picture to catch their expression.

Meeting the grandchild at the bus stop is an everyday thing but oh how precious it is.

It's the simple things in life that makes us the most happy. I still remember running home from the bus stop when I was in first grade.

Fairy: Thanks! I'll pass the compliment along to Wifey. She'll be all smiles.
