Our eight-year-old granddaughter recently spent four non-stop days with Charley and me. Here are her
We picked blueberries and baked muffins, shopped for school clothes, had a pedicure, saw a Smurfs movie. She dived under four-foot waves and rode her boogie board (left her surf board at home), had a shoot-out with me in bumper boats, played tennis, went to a church fair where a magician transformed a white handkerchief into a bunny and she spent $1.10 on gifts for her sister and herself.
Our "quiet" time was spent on the computer searching for instructions to make patterned duck tape into a purse. The instructions were too complicated, and she'd already made the easier projects. Family photo albums provided some amusement and time for me to wash my hair.
This is sounding too much like a plan again!
