Today was a great day. It started out early with a phone call from my daughter to come and watch her son and my grandson, Tucker participate in the Cub Scout Raingutter Sailboat Regata in the dairy section of our local grocery store.
He was really wound up and could hardly sit still for all of his excitement. Earlier in the week he was over to have Grandpa help him paint and prepare his beautiful entry in this amazing race. He was sent home with orders to practice controlling his boat in the bathtub. Tucker's dad had to work today, so Grandpa was substituting for coach and chauffeur for this really special event. My daughter and I had to travel in a separate car, as we were told that this was a guy thing. But, we were allowed to watch and cheer.
Tucker loves to be with his Grandpa, who knows how to relate to this young boy like a best friend. I really marvel watching that friendship. Last year my daughter asked him how old Grandpa was, and he said 6 (a year older than him).
