Miss S is cranking out shawls for the hospice faster than I can knit Duck Soups. Of course, she doesn't have to worry about the three 2 year olds that come to Nonny's and Deega's house Monday through Thursday. She can just spoil them and crochet! This is shawl #6. We give Miss S yarn and let her pick out color combinations. I am still amazed at what she puts together and love to see it.
DRUM ROLL please!!! It is only fitting that our church celebrated our daughter's big accomplishment only two days after she dotted the last i and crossed the last t. She has her Master's Degree!!!! We are so very proud of her accomplishment and her hard work. It has been a sacrifice of time and money on her, and her husband's, part as she worked, finished her degree, started their family with not one, but 3, went through a huge tragedy, and still finished. To say we are proud doesn't even begin to cover it.
I think our daughter would say these are her biggest accomplishment and her favorite:
Gram got the graduate duck for our daughter? Uh, I don't think so. I think it was to entertain great grandchildren. And it did all during lunch and the ride home. It plays music, the hat pops up and down and the duck waddles forward. Really cute. But really annoying after a bit I'm sure!
Don't these three look adorably innocent? Minding their manners, eating? Looks are deceiving. I learned, to my dismay, not to leave these three unattended in their high chairs with food. I left the room for a few minutes and as I was returning I heard giggles and, "I got you!" and more giggles. I entered the kitchen to find a little fist raised to hurl the next food in the food fight. I sternly said, "What on earth do you think you're doing?" and was met with dead silence. Silence that lasted and bodies that were quiet for the full 15 minutes it took me to clean up tomatos, cantaloupe, and pb&j off the walls and floor. Yes, I was laughing, but they didn't know that! For all practical purposes they thought they were in BIG trouble. And I want them to continue to think that!
