Busy Week – Proud Nana

This has been a busy week, but oh so fun! I started the week with the usual household chores, but then Tuesday arrived.

I was invited to have tea with my 5 year old Granddaughter Gracey. The tea was to celebrate her last week home with her Mother before she started Kindergarten in the fall. As you can see she was a very busy girl getting ready.

Here she is busy making fruit kabobs. She already made the cookies. Her recipes were from her My First Cookbook by Paula Deen.

Then she had to put the sugar, her favorite, in the sugar bowl and get those napkins in the rings>

Now off to get ready before her company arrives.

Ta-Da – you know a lady must have her gloves on.

She is showing off the rosebud Nana brought her.

John is in the second grade and the whole family is very proud of him. He was awarded with 4 reading awards (including a gold medal)(3rd year in a row), he got Outstanding PE award, he got the Citizenship award for his class (3rd year in a row), Straight A's award (3rd year in a row) and voted "Most likely to become a scientist" award (voted by his classmates)!

Here he is with his award file

John's Award CeremonyToday was a little slower. I attended my Jo’s Little Women Club at the local quilt shop. Betsy author of "Gone to Texas" is the leader and does a great job. Tomorrow looks like it will slow down a little.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day. And let’s not forget the reason we are celebrating.

Until later.

Oh what precious memories for you to carry with you as they get older...these days are so short where they do these kinds of things.
Congratulations to both your grandchildren on their sweet successes.
Happy Holiday Weekend.
