Holly used her “Chanukah” money from Gramma to buy a wooden peg loom. I am so thrilled to see her take to it like she has. She comes from a long line of women who worked willingly with their hands. My grandmother made embroidered tablecloths. My aunt spun wool and hooked rugs. My mother did a lot of weaving when she was younger, and is currently the best seamstress east of the Mississippi. (I love you, Mom!) I spin, dye, and knit. So, I am thrilled to have a budding fiber artist in my midst. She has about completed her first project, and is thoroughly enjoying it. Paper and scissors are great, but I love seeing my children involved with really useful projects.
We wouldn’t want to leave the boys out, so here’s a tribute to my little man, Isaac. He’s a true knight in training. If only he didn’t cry louder than the girls when he gets hurt lol!
