Gaege and Harrison's visit

Springland got all spruced up for two very special guest. Our grandson Gaege and his good friend, Harrison. We had 3 days to make some special memories with these fine boys so we started out with the reenactment of the Battle of Franklin. With 7oo reenactors, horses, cannons, rifles and black powder, made for a great time for guys who love history. It was great to have Felly and Rob with us. Then we headed back to the house for a home cooked meal and chess, movies and down time. Sunday, was Sunday School and Church and a quick visit to see Great Grandmother and Merry and Terr. The afternoon was a awesome time at the Cumberland Science Museum and Juju had to pull the guys out of the building at closing time. They love this place. Back home to a fried chicken dinner. The next morning was work time and earning money for good attitudes and chores well done. With two truck loads of leaves and two trees sawed down they both got to add money to their pockets. In for lunch, showers and then off to see Mr. Fulton, a World War II veteran who gave us a personnel account of the Battle of the Bulge, on landing craft on 2nd day of the evasion at Normandy Beach, Berlin airlift, 99 missions to Korea and so much more. Mr Fulton was in Patton's army and had pictures of him. What a hero. Then back home to write thank you notes to Mr. Fulton and have Abby clean Gaege;s ears!!! Tuesday, was back to work for me and Louis driving the boys back to Memphis. after Louis brought Gaege and Harrison to have their teeth checked out. I think we covered every base and needless to say, a great time for all and we miss them!
