My sweet grandkids

On Friday, Maria brought Julia and Rylan here to be babysat, since she and Grant had to work.  She also brought us some goodies from Trader Joe’s in Seattle:

Grandkids 003-A

Julia, age 9, and Rylan, age 7, are growing up tall and lean.  You might be interested to know that racially they are 1/4 Irish, 1/4 Korean, 3/8 Japanese, and 1/8 Chinese (1/4 white and 3/4 Asian):

Rylan recently won his yellow belt in karate.  He showed me some of his karate moves:

Rylan loves to play Pokémon:

He and Julia also love to read:

I don’t always babysit, as my daughter and her husband are school teachers.  When their children are on vacation, they are on vacation, too, because they all belong to the same public school system.  Teaching is a great career for that reason.

The kids will start their new school year on Monday.  Julia will be in fifth grade, and Rylan in second grade.  They are excited and looking forward to it.
