Grandsitting Day 6: the morning

Fri., Aug. 4th

Last night, we watched Jeopardy, theteen competition. Jos kept score. Grampa won!

Then, we were up and ready for the last day at Gramma and Grampa's!

First breakfast course, Izzy made her usual parfait (Greek yogurt & granola); 2nd course, toast. Jam and marmalade. She popped two pieces in the toaster.

Isabelle, age 7:
"I know how toasters work, because I took our old toaster apart, theoretically, not literally."
TV morning, due to thunder and lightning: kid TV!
Wild Kratts, and Daisy decided to visit. She was playful. She found a catnip bag, and went for it.

When they come back, next week, Daisy should be a sure-fire companion, as much as Annabelle!

Breakfast on the back deck is a must. I love the Annabelle perch. She'll eat anything, so we have to watch her. Grampa was beside Izzy, on his chair. You can just see his knee.

They've been living in the basement. It's a perfect set-up. These little chairs unfold to beds.
The deal was, tidy up, and then watch one Wild Kratts show. Back downstairs to pack, and another show.

Josephine, the one who appreciates rules, suggested we pack at the same time, and then watch two shows in a row. Isabelle bought into this.

Then we went out to play, as it was getting hotter. After awhile it was time to get into the pool.

In the afternoon, at 3 p.m., we were headed to the Lombardy Fair. I only remembered hats, as we made it to the end of the driveway in the car. Back we go. It took me an' Josee 10 minutes to find them. I'd put something on top of them in the packing pile.
Tomorrow, the fair photos!
Today, the latest movies!
This was the last video they shot, almost entirely on their own. We edited it in iMovie. The only problem, using the camera, is it doesn't automatically focus, like the videocam.
