grandkid visits - week 1
Jade was ready for her week with a list of projects, a supply list for those projects, and a menu for the week...breakfast, lunch, and dinner. At 14, she is a very organized young woman.
We had a lot of fun, Jade and I. She really didn't need any help with any of the things we did. Well, maybe a little, especially with the sewing parts, but mostly all she needed was company.
We stayed up late every night. Me, til midnight. Sometimes she stayed up longer.
We made bow rings.
We made a tribal necklace. Jade made a tribal necklace.
We cut down T-shirts and wove up the sides.
We made her Oscar The Grouch Halloween costume into a bag to keep her yearbook from school and a scrapbook in so it won't get messed up.
We made pies and cookies. She turned her head when I lifted the camera. 'Nooo, Granny. I don't like the way it looks with my hair up.' She ran off to the bathroom and fixed it and came back and posed for me.
We made a dino hoodie.
Again with the turning of the head.
The week was over in no time. I took her home and returned with Robin.
