Tuesdays With Grammy

We've been so blessed. Glenn's Grandma Winslow (Jeanette) age 91 has been spending Tuesday afternoons with us and then spending the night and staying for the entire day on Wednesdays. This has been wonderful for all of us! Glenn's Granddad died on December 26th, leaving Gram at home alone a lot during the day. We offered this arrangement and the family was so thankful. Glenn and I feel like we have Titus 2:4-5 being lived out each week in our very home:

"Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, 5 to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. "

Many hands make light work, and Grammy loves to help out.
Grammy is such a great teacher in this regard.
Busy hands are productive hands. We are all knitting here. Grammy LOVES to knit.

At this point in her life, Grammy can't handle following a pattern, but she straight knits very well. She is making scarves to send to the troops stationed in cold areas.

As a former librarian, Grammy loves to be part of our homeschooling day, and she often adds her own historical insights into our learning! We LOVE it!

Grammy is getting another ball of yarn ready to make into a scarf.

The children LOVE Tuesdays (and Wednesdays) with Grammy, and it is a highlight of  our week!
