Today our grandson, Quintin Gaither, is 8 years old! Wow, where has the time gone?? I got to visit Quin last month, and even bought him a great birthday present from me and his Grandpa Harry.

My first event since returning from all my summer travels was with eight young women (seven "tweens" and one about-to-be-first-grader -- sister of one of the others). Boy, did they have a good time! (Me, too!) The project was to decorate the cover of a composition book. I had hoped to use some new materials to show off to their moms; but August 17th was just too … [Read more...] about A Class for the Younger Generation
One of the best things I've done in the past couple of years was to convince my sister, Andrea, to go have a portrait session with me. We went to one of those mall photographers who specialize in children. We told them we felt like kids, and said they should just pose us down on the floor like they did any other kids! (I'm on the left and Andrea is on the right in all the … [Read more...] about Sisters
