Glue Dots, Our New BF

We decided to get some calendar work done today and found that glue dots saved the day. A project to most kiddos, using glue, is anticipated. However, when you have to use your fingers to make sure the glue goes in the right spot, find the paper that you need to glue, again find the gooey glue spot, put the paper on the glue and then start the whole process over again? Frustrating to say the least. Glue everywhere. I was able to put the sticky dot on the calendar, leaving the plastic cover on it. Miss JiJi was able to find the spot, remove the plastic, get her paper and find the slightly sticky spot and presto-whammo, another date on the calendar. Success AND a smile!

My New Grand-daughter!!!!

She was a surprise to me, too! Meet Charlie. The pig. I just met her this morning. Her mom, Miss JiJi introduced us - encouraging her "daughter", Charlie, to shake her Grandma's hand. Gee thanks, Ji. She was so proud to have figured out a beautiful baby carrier from her braillewriter backpack! Quite the fashion statement, as usual - with all her fancy rings on.

Mom, Don't Forget!!!!

OK, so I forgot. Chicka joined the adult choir at church and I forgot to take her to her first practice! Bad mama! She wanted to make sure I didn't forget this week, so she wrote me a note - love the way she sounded out choir - that is a hard one! Then she had to flip her hair for your viewing pleasure.
