Living away from my grandsons is hard. I miss having them live down the street from me and wish that I would have taken advantage of it more. I absolutely love my life in Washington and wouldn’t change it for the world, but it’s hard being apart from family. It’s like a piece of me is missing. My grandsons are young, three and one, but one of my favorite things to do with them is read. I really believe that reading to kids is one of the best ways to spend quality time, and it’s so special to read books to my grandsons that I used to read to their father when he was young.
