Summer with Alissa

Alissa has spent the summer with her daddy and that means we have enjoyed having her every Wednesday! When she is here, my world stops and they day is devoted to her. We have made play dough, done craft projects, played house, colored, read stories, gone school shopping and consumed a bazillion popsicles! She is so excited to start 1st grade but I will be sad to see her go. In this photo she is trying out the ironing board I found at a friend's home. It is old and rusty but Alissa loves it.
I had one like it as a kid. Nice to know in this day and age kids take pleasure in the same things we did. I love this child more than life it's self. What a blessing to have grandchildren.
Truly a reward towards the end of our adventure called life.

hi Susan, I feel your heart as you speak of Alissa. What a beautiful face she has! I am sure the bonds you created this summer will live with her through out her life, and be a special memory when she reflects upon them when making summers special,for her own grandchildren one day
