Seasons change and so does life...
Goose and I have been working on some paper fall leaves with watercolors and oil pastels. We had a good time. The second day she asked me what we were going to do with all of these leaves. So yesterday I strung them up into a leaf mobile. I originally saw the idea on http://mamaskinnedknees.typepad.com/ with real leaves. So pretty! Here is our work of art!
Friday we received some bad news. My uncle passed away suddenly from a heart attack that Friday evening. I am in shock still. Trying to keep busy. Sunday I also found out that my grandfather is dying and it's a day to day situaion. I had a horrible weekend! Goose and Binky are only aware of my uncle's death right now. They only saw him a few times. But telling them about my grandfather, their great-grandpa, will be tough! Not looking forward to it. We will be leaving town this Friday to attend my uncle's funeral. We will also visit my grandfather. He was a huge part of my childhood. I have so many wonderful, loving memories. I am thankful for those. Day-to-day life has to go on. It is hard to stay focused. Time will pass and it will get easier. That's what I am telling myself, anyway.
