Cherished quilt holder
This is probably not what my Grandfather had in mind when he made me this quilt holder:) Ryan being the adventurer he is, figured out how to crawl down into the middle of the quilt holder between the two quilts. Ari thought it looked fun and joined him. The mostly ignored quilt holder became an exciting place. This discovery did lead to a discussion about my Grandfather. Ari was amazed that he made this and that he carved the beautiful hearts in the side. She asked "Was he a woodworker?" In fact he was. My Grandfather could do amazing things with wood!
“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” - Fred Rogers
Live in a way that the preacher doesn't have to lie at your funeral.
"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor souls who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat." --Theodore Roosevelt
Who am I? That is a difficult question to answer! I am a wife to a loving man! I am a Mom of 2 wonderful children of which I homeschool. I love to scrapbook and take pictures mainly of the kids. I have five dachshund that are as close to kids as they get.
