Favorite Things Friday

Today's favorite is two-fold.  The first is my grandsons' drawings (or just kids' drawings); the other is a plan I have.

First, the drawings. I don't know why I had these in my bag, but I did, so I decided to scan them and realized just how cute they are. 

When Mikey was learning to write, he couldn't get "grandma" down so he would write "Gimop".  So cute, right?

I think these were all done during his Spiderman phase ...

And this one is by Andrew, at the same time -- I'm guessing Mikey was 4 and Andrew, 2.

Note to self, always, always, always date their drawings.

Second, the plan.  There is an app/thing called Storycorps, which is about talking to people and telling their stories. You can read about it here.  Anyway, I was thinking it might be cool to talk with my grandchildren, yearly and ask them questions about life.  So I'm going to do that with Mikey and Andrew this year, maybe Cooper.  And hope to do it regularly.  I'll let you know how it goes and maybe bring the videos here, if they turn out.

Love the story idea! I recently started recording jones's conversations because they are so random.

I like your story corp idea. I wish we'd done that when DT was younger.

My oldest grandson turned 10 yesterday.  Hard to believe I have a grandson who is that old -- I can remember being 10.  It's crazy. Th...
