Here we are with Roger's family. The kids have plenty of room to roam and run free with cousins. There are 14 people in the house talking and playing. One of those people is an old neighbor absorbed in teaching me about his beloved flowers. I am listening when I realize I have not seen Simeon for a while. I try to ask some passerbyers if they know where he is. Nope. Another 10 min goes by before I have to excuse myself and start looking. Last I remembered, he was in the hot tub. Nope. I ask for more help. We search the house, the trailer, the tree house, the cars, the orchard, the street, the everywhere. No Simeon. I jump in the car to start that kind of search when they yell they found him.
Apparently he had asked Grandma if he could take a bath. So glad he was ok. I had started to panic and it takes me a while to get to that point.

Oh my goodness, did he fall asleep? I did that to my parents once when I was a kid, but it was the middle of the night and we were supposed to be leaving for vacation and they were freaking! I'm glad he was okay.

OMGosh. I am surprised he asked for a bath, he probably just said,"Grandma I am ready for my nap." and then helped himself to the cool feel of the tub! That panic is scary.

Such a terrible feeling! Looks like he was searching for some peace and quiet and certainly found it.
