“M, I could make you a black kitty costume!”


Taking a break from the faux fur mess in the sewing room with the news that I did find those “missing” photos. G had them.


So, we’ve got some grandkids with grandparents from Ohio in August…

(She can be a handful, but it is almost always a happy handful…)

G was quite occupied last year with a PTA activity he spearheaded to fund and build a new playground at the school across the street. And the second week of school, his vision was made reality. As fate would have it though, C is no longer attending that school (because she was accepted into an advanced learner program that operates out of a different public school) but the kids were still pretty excited about it.

(Can’t read the sign in the last picture? It says to stay off the equipment because the cement is drying. I guess being the head of the playground committee had its perks though Winking smile)

OK, back into the costume sewing fray. Hopefully Halloween pictures to follow in the next few days!
