Have I told you about my new gift strategy for my grandchildren?
My lovely, adorable grandchildren, who own so much stuff I can hardly comprehend it.
Papa and I give them classes for Christmas and birthdays.
So far, I think it has had positive repercussions.
Come with me and take a look.
Kenzie got a month of horse riding lessons for Christmas. She enjoyed it so much that Mom and Dad have sprung for a few more lessons. I really like how it has broadened Kenzie's horizons; every lesson she comes back with news of progress. Most exciting to me is that she is no longer afraid of everything, as you saw at the stables a few days ago.
Click on the photo to get a closer look at the cute blue boots she is wearing.
Nine years old and she already fits her Nana's boots.
Daniel is finally enjoying his swimming lessons that he got for Christmas.
The boy is a fish.
His energy is boundless.
Thomy is on his second set of art classes, this time for his birthday. The original studio closed, so I had to find another one that was not too obnoxiously far away.
After we went to the Rose Gardens a couple of weeks ago, I took Thomy for his first Friday open studio. Kenzie tagged along.
It was Monster Day, a la Maurice Sendak.
First, they made their own pet monsters out of wood and paint.
Thomy and I have a date in August for another open studio Friday.
This time it will be Pirate Day.
Hey Jenny, maybe you should tag along!
