John and Amy left today to go camping for 3 days. They are going to celebrate their,so we get the opportunity to watch these two cute red heads! It is amazing what a 10 1/2 month old can get into! She isn't walking on her own yet but walking around things and getting into everything, first she is in the dishwasher(while I am trying to load it) and eating off any food that is left on the silverware...yuck, then she grabs a magnet off the fridge and puts it in her mouth, next she head for the stairs...head first. Well, you get the picture.
Angie is my side kick, she is a great helper and can do almost everything on her own but is always wanting to sew, draw, paint, work in the garden and so on ( not sure where she gets that from? ). So I guess you can say I am working full time again, with Lee and Jeff's help of course. Their other grandma will come over tomorrow and help some too.
So tonight I gotta go and get their baths and ready for bed. How blessed I feel to live close enough to help and enjoy these moments with my granddaughters. Yes, I am a one lucky Nana! Good night!"I think, at a child's birth, if a mother could ask a fairy godmother to endow it with the most useful gift, that gift would be curiosity."
-- Eleanor Roosevelt
“Grandparents can strengthen and inspire their grandchildren as they share their experiences, testimony, and faith. Their true stories of obedience, learning from mistakes, making sacrifices to reach eternal goals, and cheerfully facing problems can help children as they face similar experiences. In addition to talking with their grandchildren, grandparents can record their testimonies and experiences in journals, which can uplift and teach family members now and in future generations.“ ~Teaching, No Greater Call
