When Shannon's parents came for a week they brought his sister's daughter along too! Ginny is right in between Annie & Caroline, age-wise. They all shared a lot of laughs and fun goofy giggly girl time!
One day's play was doctor office. (With real patients instead of dolls!)
Several afternoons were badminton game days.
A single strand of jute twine across the lane served as a makeshift net.
This must be girls vs. boy(s).
American Girl doll gifts from Grandma when granddaughters turn 10.
Lots of time was spent sewing.
Though not long stretches of pensive, focused, somber, calm, sewing.
Ginny taught Annie how to knit a scarf.
She gifted Caroline & Cora with matching scarves she made during their long drive to Kansas.
The children (plus Aunt Britney) all enjoyed Ginny's walky talkies...playing Spies.
Each gal made pom pom bookmarks for Art class.
They tried out the long awaited microwave popcorn in a bag that was found at our place after we moved in. That is the handiest idea for growing popcorn (which we plan to do), no threshing the kernels off! Too bad the micro-waves kill the good stuff! (So we also plan to de-corn our cobs after harvest for the stovetop popper.)
It was popped for a picnic lunch in the freshly cleaned chicken house (playhouse?) They thought it was grand anyhow!
Caroline even got to ride all the way back to the relative's house with her Grandma, Grandpa, Auntie, and very fun cousin!
