You're looking at one proud Gramma

Ah, what a wonderful life.
Being a Gramma is so much fun.
I love all my grandkids, and they range in age from 27 to 2 months, but today I am going to share...

Owen will be turning 5 next month
and started pre-school this year.

This is his first school craft.
A lovely mixed media abstract self-portrait.
I love it.
Before you know it, we'll be listing his art for sale.

Just this past week, he brought home his first award.

He always did like to read, and Brandon says that Owen brings books home from school all the time.

Just another trait he got from his Mom
(and me)
(and Nana)

Speaking of his mom, Amanda started her Remicade treatment this week.

Chrones is a terrible disease, so hard to fight, and just draining all around.  It breaks my mothers heart to see her hurting.  But don't tell her that, she hates to be coddled or questioned about her health.

She/I/We believe that the symptoms flare up under stress, and her life has been super busy lately, but the Remicade did wonders for her before, and we expect it to do wonders again.

Well, basically, that's been life here in NC lately.
Quiet, and full. :0)

Be blessed,

Chrones certainly is a terrible disease, and stress sure wreaks havoc, doesn't it. So sorry to hear that her symptoms are flaring, but great that the Remicade treatment helps her so much!

Owen is adorable, and what a great mixed media piece of artwork he created!! Congrats to him on receiving the certificate, so good that he enjoys reading!!!

Love the self portrait, especailly the ears and nose.

Chrones is pretty awful, I ran into it alot when I research my colitis problems. I have had great success with Paleo and my stomach issues, but it is very difficult to eat that way all the time.

I love the crafty kitty! They say that attitude is everything so kudos to Amanda for her strength and courage.

Debbi Huntington said...
