In Memory of Grandpa Kirk

(Grandpa Kirk, Nana, Zoey, Abby & Hailey @ the Blue Bell Creamery Tour)

It has been a while since I have blogged. The girls and I came home from our summer vacation at my mother and stepfather's house. Just as we were trying to get back into a routine and get ready for a school, we received the devastating news that my stepfather died very unexpectedly in his sleep. So, after only 5 days at home, the girls and I loaded up the van and made the 1100 mile trip back to Texas to be there with my mother and to mourn the loss of our dear Grandpa Kirk.

While we are back and everyone is in school, we are still dealing with the loss. I am so glad that we were there this summer to play with him and drive him crazy. These are memories that I hope my girls will keep with them, I know that I will.

In his memory, last night I made one of his favorite meals....pinto beans and cornbread. YUM! The man had good taste buds!

We miss you Grandpa Kirk!
