Look on the bright side...

That's what I've been trying to do ever since I found out my grand-babies are moving to Virginia! Actually, I only look at the bright side when I think about it and most of the time I try NOT to do that. So, the bright side? Ugh, there isn't one. I just couldn't think of a better title.

Paul and I babysat Logan and Emmy last weekend while Eric and Jess went to VA to look for a place to rent once they get there the weekend of the 13th.

Logan and I went to the Rocky River Nature Center (which he has always LOVED) and we had an enjoyable day together.

 Logan loved feeding the baby praying Mantis'


This week has been both Logan and Emmy's last days of school parties and programs...

Emmy did really well remembering her lines for the song.
Logan had fun and games. In the right photo, the object of the game was to see how many mini marshmallows you can toss in the bucket on your partners head. They were suppose to throw
"one at a time" LOL!


Logan's teacher has been a wonderful influence on Logan. Very patient and kind. I wanted to do something special for her so I made her a coffee cup sleeve. I thought of it on a whim and of course I stayed up until midnight to get it done since Wednesday was their last day at school and it was Tuesday I started on it!
I found the pattern online here pencil-drink-sleeve.

I can't remember the last time I embroidered...man was that fun!!!

Suppose to look like a pencil haha. This is the outside.
This is the inside.
TaDa! 
The back.
The front. 
So, it has this insulating material inside. The kind inside of oven mitts. It will actually work! I gave her a Starbucks gift card with it. I don't even know if she drinks coffee LOL. Doesn't matter, she can use it for something else and buy herself some danishes or something.

As always....
