Getting Ready For Our Granddaughter
We're so excited! Our daughter and granddaughter will be visiting us for a couple of months. Tif's husband has a computer job on the island of Kauai so they're coming in together tomorrow and then he'll go on to Kauai. He'll join us next week when his job is complete there. I think there's a possibility that he's got another job on three islands and if that's so he can come back again. Tif and KC will stay with us for two months because her husband has so many out of town jobs anyway. We're thrilled that we'll get to have them for so long though we feel badly that her husband has to be gone so much. It's very hard on a marriage.
In preparation for KC to be here, we've had to baby proof this house. It's been a little tricky since so much of the house is still not completed. We've got another 4-5 years worth of work to finish it off. One thing we absolutely had to do was to put in a child gate. We looked everywhere for a pressure type gate so we wouldn't have to put screws into the walls but couldn't find one. Ah well, we've settled on this one and figure that we'll have a grandchild and maybe someday, grandchildren come to visit so this will protect them from a fall down 21 steps.
