Another week in the life of Gramma2Many

Caleb (#6212)
doesn't even need
a skateboard to ride the rails!
Landing on both feet successfully.
Miss Elizabeth (#6314)
learning to knit with Gramma.
She actually caught on very quickly and took her project with her when she went home to work on it further. She is the first to get the concept of knit one row and purl one row. I usually teach them to knit every row until they are comfortable with the knit portion of it.
Because we are in the middle of big changes in the basement, tiling the floor and putting in new windows, that area is closed off to Grands. This is the aftermath of a day at Gramma's and being unable to play downstairs.
I wish I could have taken pictures of a few bolts of the lightening that accompanied this hail storm. Had I still been living in Georgia, I would have been looking for a safe place to hide from the tornado.
I have not experienced a thunder storm with the power this one had for many years.
Still waiting for my beautiful Wisteria to come into full bloom. It usually blooms before it leaves. I do, however, see a few leaves showing.
The favorite corner of my yard. My cherry tree and my swing. I love to sit here and knit in the summer.

I love the contrasts you have in your backyard. (the weathered building with suberbopolis behind). Such a neat li'l spot.

Oh, and I wanna be a grand and have you teach me to knit and purl! (but I wouldn't catch on too quickly. E would have me beat.)

What a lovely spot to sit and knit peaceful.

Don't you just love the look of concetration of Elizabeth's face :-)...and that rail riding is something else.

I'm back .. I think I just needed to take a little break for awhile to ride life's storms...

That looks like such a cozy & beautiful place to rest. Just lovely.

How wonderful that you are teaching your granbddaughter to knit! I wish someone had taught me way back when....
