Hoping

Habit, if not resisted, soon becomes necessity
St. Augustine
This quote normally would inspire an immediate guilt trip, but today, I am claiming it to inspire......Hope

I shared a while back that I was teaching my Granddaughter to knit on a loom and she said "lets make more things".

Yesterday we did these "things" together.........
Glow in the dark puzzle

and
this cute princess purse as well as lunch at Taco Bell:) but what I have come to understand is that it is not the things that are important but rather the time spent together.
She gets a early release from school once every month so we have decided to try to make that our special day...a habit if you will, and my hope is that one day it will become a necessity for us to spend a little time together, laughing, talking and creating crafts and sharing a special relationship.

This sounds like such a wonderful habit. I was not lucky enough to grow up around my grandmothers and develop that close relationship with them when I was younger.

She will treasure you times together - I still remember my Grandma's time with me.

I didn't have any grandmas while I was growing up, but I'm going to make sure that my grandchildren see a lot of me! I think it's a very special relationship, and I regret not having had that experience. I hope you and your granddaughter enjoy every second of your time together!

What a fabulous idea and what a memory you both will have of each other. A real blessing.

Grandchildren are so much fun....that we should have them first! My son and his wife were just here for a week and now I'm trying to talk my two daughters into coming down for Spring Break and bringing my only granddaughter. She will be eighteen on the 5th of April. Being the only girl with seven grandsons, makes her extra special. I like the sound of making her monthly visit a habit.

Next week I am going to be entertaining five grandchildren on their Spring breaks. I may have to call on your creative mind to motivate me.
