Grandma Duty

A couple of months ago, Sue asked me if I could take care of the girls while She and Rob went to Oswego for a college reunion. Not a problem I said. Didn't realize I would still be recovering from Alaska. I picked up the girls on Friday afternoon. We had supper and then headed for the J store to get a pattern. Sarah wanted to make a dress. I wasn't in the house but a few minutes, when she had her sewing machine set up and ready to sew! Finally I have someone who is interested in my hobby! We picked out 2 patterns-one for Sarah and one for Emma, found some fabric and a few odds and ends. After a stop at Chick filet for supper and Brewsters for dessert, we were good to go! Have to say, after a full weekend, I hope not to be watching the Disney channel for quite awhile! We started "the big sew" Saturday morning before heading down to the pool. We did get her dress done. I should have taken a picture of it. I brought Emma's home. I need to put that one together myself. We went to Laurie's pool on Sunday. Smaller but much quieter..
Mom and Dad got home after six and I was home by about seven. (And in bed shortly after 8)!
Only downside:one bed with 3 people, 1 cat and several stuffed animals. Does not make for sound sleeping!
