Activities With My Granddaughter

Aloha Everyone,

I spent today hanging out with my granddaughter. This morning she had ice-skating lesson. She and her two friends were serious students following coaches' instructions. Perhaps her skate giving her additional 1 1/2" may have contributed to her stature. Dressed in an emerald-green ice-skating costume and with her long hair in a ponytail, she looked both tall and mature.

Lego blocks were first introduced to our older son (our granddaughter's father) by his Godparents in Denmark. The Volquartz had brought out  their grown sons' Lego blocks to play with. As our sons were growing up, the number of Lego blocks increased to the point where they used to build a motorcycles and chairs large and strong enough to sit on or the Eiffel Tower tall enough to tower over me. When our granddaughter was about 1, we shipped her a box of the original size Lego blocks for her use. Family tradition continues. It was delightful to watch our granddaughter create one object to next using no reference but her imagination.

The next thing was to play table tennis.  She plays with her parents while I've not held a paddle in years. All I can say is that I needed my 2nd shower of the day after our fun session.

For dinner, our son prepared delicious and healthy curry with bison meat, onion, carrots, spinach and tofu.

After dinner, the 3 of us (our son, granddaughter and I) participated in this weekend's Clash of Clan War. Now that I learned how to raid successfully for resources, my next goal is to learn and figure out effective war strategy.

Before I end today's blog, a very Happy Birthday Pam and thank you for following my blog.

Aloha -- Cathi
