We have had a busy summer, just seemed like one thing after another. Do you ever feel like you meet yourself coming and going. I think I have been MIA all summer in blog land. Perhaps I can get caught up over the next week or so. I also have several books I need to get reviewed and a few I need to read.
Our grandkids spent a week with us the end of July. What a joy they were. They are growing so fast. It was so hot out we really couldn't do a lot, but one thing we could do was enjoy the pool. We have a wonderful Aquatic Park here in Willard. The kids really had a good time. Cain got brave and even went off the high dive, his dad and Janice were really surprised. He loved it! Eden went down the big slide once, but they said she could not go on with her life jacket on, so she spent the rest of the time in the kids end. Needless to say, Cain spent most of his time on the far end of the pool, so I did not get as many pictures of him.
As you can tell they love to make things, I ran across this kit at a yard sale. I have to say it is the best $1.00 I ever spent. There are forms with little pegs sticking out that you put these plastic beads on, then you use the iron to melt them together. When it cools you carefully pop your design off. They had several hanging designs to take home with them.
We all laughed at the last one, we told her Daddy he better get the big guns out! The kids had a good time and already talking about next summer. Making memories -- that is what it's all about!
until next time... nel
