Our grandson showed off the medal his soccer team received at the end of this season. They had fun piling on the hats and scarves I had crocheted for all of them on GD. My GS loved his stuffed guitar! My GD is sewing a dress, her first, she made from a pillow case. The picture is one she drew matching fabrics to clothing she designed in her after school textile art class. The bottom blue fabric has a rubbery feel to it. She told me the blue in the woman's handis her "yoga mat"! The top yellow with white dot fabric is like a rain slicker. This girl is going places!She can thread the needle and stitch the sash to the dress, tie a knot at the end of her work. They were so cute getting their gifts and showing lots and lots of appreciation. It warmed my heart.

Sunday With Grandkids=special time!
On Sunday we went down to see our two grand kids and their parents...it was a fun day...starting with brunch on the avenue. My grand daughter is modeling a little shirt I found for her at the thrift store!
She loved it.
My "hat family" had fun and were funny.
GS loved his thrift store sweater too!!
Stuffed Snake was a big hit too!
Notice all the missing teeth and new teeth coming in.
My grand daughter and I had some time together while she told me about school, how the teacher talks to them a lot in Hebrew, and then she switches to English "so we'll know what we need to do!" She knows a lot of Hebrew words and said she can read stories in Hebrew now.
Soon I know she will know more than me.
Both kids read a page of English in their "level one" books to me!
But mostly we played around and laughed and joked.
I got the thread and needle handed to me to sew up "Poley" the stuffed polar bear that used to be my daughters and now has been passed down to my grand kids. He had a few tears with stuffing coming out. Grandma Lynn quickly stitched him back up good as new. After the weekend of tragic news in our country (violent shooting of a congresswoman and many others in Arizona) it was a relief
to be with my family.
My heart and prayers go out to all those families who are having a much harder time right now.
