Grandsitting 2.5 Thursday

Thursday, Aug. 17

We began the morning with the story.
Izzy spent hours on this with me, setting it up, then going through the next chapters of her story.

Jos didn't get upstairs until 11 a.m.! She created two paintings, then painted her hand, and then her face.

After pool time, there were bubbles. I made up some home-made bubble goop.
Mix 4 cups lukewarm water with 1/3 cup of honey. Stir until incorporated and dissolved. Try not to make too many bubble in the mix. Then add a 1/2 cup of Dawn liquid soap. We had leftover bubble wands from precious play, and this was fun.

Next, Grampa arrived home and brought more Close Eyes! A t-shirt for Jos and a helicopter, and police cars and trucks for the plasticine village. They checked the pool thermometer as the day passed.

They made their own lunches, as well as breakfast. There was the afternoon movie after we cleaned up, and then we went out to dinner.

Here is Josee snuggling up with Grampa, whilst watching Jeopardy! A touching moment.

They look like they are having a great time! And so nice to see they are not attached to some electronic device but having real playtime fun.
