With Retirement imminent and having viewed countless things that mama has created for The Grandgirls, Papa decided that it was time to get on the bandwagon. He started off small a bit ago, making a wooden portable grow chart for the girls. At least one member of our family promises to be a bit mobile for awhile, and with the help of Pinterest, she thought that a detached, sturdy growth chart might best suit her needs.
Especially after Eldest/Admin mentioned ever so casually that she would love a child size picnic table. I am sure that she was remembering the dear little table that her Grandparents gave her and her brother one summer. That little table was utilized for many things in my children's lives. It served countless lunches and became an outdoor art center. It was used to reach the clothesline when a favorite item was needed and mom was busy. It was used as a platform for the pool. E/A used it to hold the numerable locust shells that she collected. It was a counter for a pretend store. And they used it till it literally fell apart.
But persevere he did.
Good Job, Papa!!
