Saturday with Elle

I’m beginning to adjust to being back in the states and am starting to settle into my new apt and the new school year. Tomorrow, I’ll go to school to set up my classroom, getting prepared to greet 150+ freshmen on Monday morning.

Today, I babysat. My granddaughter and I built houses from blocks, read countless books, drew pictures, had tea parties, pretended, danced, giggled, and told stories. As you can probably tell … she is my light and joy.



Her mother is a superb pianist.

Sparkling Beads, Bracelets, Princess High Heeled Slippers, Princess Crown, and ATTITUDE!

She wore the crown for hours. Elle: “Where’s my crown?” Me: “On your head.” Elle: “Oh yeah!” I had to giggle…so much like her grandma!
