There are so many traditions in place at AmaraLand. But what do you do when grandchildren grow up and get to old and to big for those traditions?
One of those traditions has always been for Grandpa to “Fly” Amara to the car when it is time to go home. This was easy when she was little but as she gets older it gets more difficult for Grandpa to swing her up on to his shoulder and fly her to the car.
So this weekend when she turned to Grandpa and asked him to fly her – he told her “No, you are just getting to big to fly.” Her mouth trembled, tears rolled down her cheeks and she begged — just one more time? Grandpa couldn’t disappoint his girl but he did think fast. He explained that he would fly her to the car but that once she turned 6 years old — which is only a few weeks away — then she would be to big to fly.
So until then Air Amara is still flying out of AmaraLand.
