Several of the children in my life—including most of my grandchildren—all attend a summer school program that has lots of structured activities throughout the week including exercise, crafts, computer projects, board games, etc. This week, one of their projects was yarn-and-popsicle-stick craft called God’s Eye.
The day after they had created their masterpieces, Steve and I dropped in on some of the grands for a quick visit. They were still bubbling with excitement about their most-recent artistic expressions. Willow, the oldest of the four, led me to her room and showed me her God’s Eye hanging over her bed. Here’s a picture of it:
Very well done, if I may say so myself!
As I turned to leave the room, six-year-old Bear (you’ve read about him before), met me with his hands behind his back and pleased expression on his face. He produced a wad of yarn with a couple of sticks poking out of it (see picture below) and said, “I made this for you, DD.” Then, as an afterthought, “I messed up a little.”
