Grandma has been on vacation staying with us for a few weeks. She has been helping the children with their homework. The kids love having her here and she is equally blessed being around her grandchildren.
One morning she told me she used to teach short-hand, which is a lost art since we have computers and electronic devices to speed us along. She wrote out several sentences for me. The first sentence above says, "Dear Sir, I'm going to town." I thought it was so neat that she could do this and a fun fact about her that we did not know.
Garrett amazes us with his free-hand drawings of bugs. He sat at the kitchen table and began drawing these. I love his creativity and I love it that he enjoys this activity.
Here is a close up of his dragon fly. I'm impressed with the detail he adds.
Garrett finished writing all of his thank you notes to his friends for his birthday gifts.
Even though his drawing ability is quite good, his hand writing has not been. Our solution has been that he tells me what to say, I write it for him, then he traces over my writing. We have been doing this for about three weeks and his hand writing has improved greatly. "I, Paul, write this greeting in my own hand, which is the distinguishing mark in all my letters. This is how I write." 2 Thessalonians 3:17 Have a lovely day ~~ Kathi
