Her Possibilities Are Endless

To keep in good standing with the Guild of Obnoxious Grandparents, I’ve mentioned many times that we have three grandchildren.  Ashlyn is our youngest granddaughter.   As the youngest, she’s still trying to find her direction in life and I’m never really sure where her talents are going to lead her.  That might be a tad confusing for her on occasion, but for everyone else around it’s pure and unrelenting entertainment

Sometimes, I think that she’s destined for a career in science, maybe as a marine biologist.

Hmmm, I wonder how many sand crabs I can put in Dad's shoe?

On the other hand, her mother has a degree in history, maybe she’ll be an historian.

Let's see if we can properly sack this castle before lunch.

Then again, her father is skilled in communications.  Her talents may lay in linguistics.

I do so like making up new words!

She has no fear about virtually anything, so we can’t rule out a career in space either.

Sigh, I really wanted a slightly larger spacecraft.

How’d you like that for a dead stick landing?

She also has a definite affinity for growing things, so maybe agronomy is the direction she’ll head.

How's that "Green Acres" song go again Papa?

Of course, at an early age she showed her artistic talents.  The Washington Ballet has been courting her for months.

Sigh, I just like to dance.  Why do they make me use these props.

For her age, she has a remarkable interest in reading food labels.  I can see her being a nutritionist.

Hopefully there aren't any trans fats in those foods.

But, I don’t know if she’d enjoy being inside all the time.  She loves to be in the field to explore.  She might like geology!

This is truly an odd geyser field.  I need to takes some soil samples.

In the end, what she does in life is truly her decision.  We’re content just to call her our little princess.

It's so hard being beautiful and famous.

So, that’s it for the grandchildren.  I’d say that I won’t subject you to any more of my obnoxious bragging, but I can’t promise that.  The thing about grandchildren is that they keep coming up with new ways to impress grandparents.  When they do, it’s almost impossible for us to keep from sharing it with whole world.   I’ll try to contain myself, but no promises.

See ya

    She also likes to collect rocks and sticks so a geologist or archeologist it is.
