Hello All Seasons Bloggers
The link is open this week from Sunday June 24 through Wednesday June 27 till 7pm, Pacific time.

Am amazed  at your unfailing witty, interesting, and heart felt experiences you post! If you ever wonder if people are interested in your posts – THEY DO !- and you light up someone else’s day (mine, for sure:):)  )

Last few weeks we have been busy bees, partying with our grands,.This week the  third one, and some more to come before Fall starts.

Birthdays, graduations, and holidays or vacations are bonding experiences and make for great memories  we need as a child, as well in adulthood . Still my 6th birthday stands out in my memory, because I had invited my whole class (about 24 people) and I did not understand why my mother didn’t want me to do the same the next year. Why? Wasn’t it a great party? So much fun!……. until I became a parent myself!




Parents  let their child  spread their wings




The second grand flying out of the nest-
A new adventure in college 7 hours away. Was impressed
with her friends at her party – they all, like she,
had already been accepted at a college.



Going with the wind.
Not that it makes one a better or lesser person,
but some of us are home bodies and others have the traveling gene.
This grand has the last.



Landing. One of the exciting moment of being in a plane is when the earth becomes visible, and the destination is in sight!

Do you like to spend your time off close to home, or far away?

    We have finally flown out of our Illinois nest, having finally closed the sale of our condo this past week. We will miss being close to at least one of our children, but not the stress of travel and maintaining two residences. You can be so proud of your grandchildren! Your granddaughter is a beautiful young woman.

    As my blog reveals, I regularly leave my nest. But I like returning and exploring nearer home too – as you’ll see in my London link for this week’s All Seasons. Enjoy the rest of your very busy, partying summer, Jesh!

    Congratulations to your granddaughter.

    I could be a gypsy, wander the world for months on end. But I have a practical side too, money aside, I do like feathering my nest at home and being a homebody.

    How proud you must be! I love the color of that graduation cap and gown! Generally, I would prefer to spend my time off (retired now, but still BUSY!) at home … thanks for hosting and enjoy your week ahead!

  6. I was born under a wandering star I think b/c I love to travel near or far, but love to come home to my stuff to rest, and rejuvenate.

    Congrats to your Granddaughter! Exciting times are ahead for her.

  7. Lovely photo of you all. A busy and rewarding for you.
    Thanks for hosting.
    Have a great week Jesh!

    Your granddaughter is beautiful! I went to a college 13 hours from home and it really helped me spread my wings!

    Time flies and we get older and let’s hope smarter 🙂
    Thank you for hosting.

    Thank you Debbie for sharing this unusual shaped building! The glow – fantastic!
    Yes – you are a happy blend of both a traveler and a homebody. Maybe because the travel is for work?
    Now I live close to 7 grands, we made it a point to go to all their birthdays since I don’t know how long we can do this. Want them to have some memories of grandparents who were not so busy they forget their special days. I didn’t have grandparents myself, so that’s why:)

    This is new, isn’t it? I really did that last photo, it looks like paper mache art. Congrats to your granddaughter, that’s an awful far away to live, but if she can get through it it’s a fantastic adventure and learning tool. Good gull close up.

  12. The wonderful adventures ahead for your grand. This weekend we were remembering some of our youthful fun. 🙂 I like your photo of the seagull. Its expression as it walks on the rock fits your wise advice perfectly. Recently, I’ve been in a wandering mood.

  13. All the best to your granddaughter!

  14. Congratulations on your granddaughter’s graduation, Jesh! All the best for her future!

  15. Part of the pleasure of travelling for me. Jesh, is the coming home. Nothing like home, sweet home, after having spent many weeks travelling all around… 🙂

    congratulations!!!!! my daughters graduation is on friday. Hope she will be accepted at college soon. I’m so happy for you all!!!! 😀

  17. We spent the month of May in Europe, and despite all the wonderful sights we saw and places we visited, my goodness it was great to be home again. I love the window seat in the plane so I can see something of the land as we fly over. Congratulations to your grand-daughter. The next stage of life awaits. Have a fabulous week.

    I’m definitely a home body but once a year we go with Hubby’s mom (when she flies in from England) for a week or two and that’s enough for me!

    Congrats to your granddaughter …. May she travel wherever she wants to go with joy! Your question about travel makes me think of the ‘bumper sticker wisdom’ many FullTime RV travelers live by: “Home is where we park it.” A simplistic way of saying that home isn’t necessarily about a building! Thanks for hosting … I will be back to catch up on all I’ve missed as we traveled (this time).
