Last weekend, Great Grandma Polly flew out to visit us! Chris picked her up at the airport on Wednesday. On Thursday, she came to see the girls' preschool and Elijah's bus stop. Friday morning she helped with Kirsa's homeschool preschool lessons, and Friday night we all went out to dinner at Helga's, our local German restaurant.
On Saturday morning, Great Grandma and the older kids made roll-out cookies. I was impressed to see that Kirsa patiently helped roll dough and cut cookies for a solid hour, and Elijah lasted through the entire 2 hours that it took to roll and cut the dough. Then they both went outside briefly, but helped frost cookies for over 30 minutes later that same morning. The results were, um, very authentic. :) But they taste delicious and the kids had so much fun!
Sunday morning was church, and on Monday morning, the girls and I took Great Grandma back to the airport for her flight home. We are SO glad she could come! Ingrid enjoyed spending time reading and "finger walking" with Great Grandma. Elijah just loves having company of any kind, and Kirsa enjoyed her attention too! Thanks again for coming, Great Grandma!!
