A Week With Noah - Part 1

Continuing the summer tradition, we had the pleasure of having our 7 year old grandson, Noah, for a week. We started the week with our annual journey to The Red Balloon Bookshop, a wonderful children's bookstore. It always brings back so many memories of bringing his mama and uncle there when they were little. He was so excited.
   They have the best selection of children's books I have ever seen. It truly is a magical place.
These were the books he chose, some with grandma's help and he even picked out a few for his little brother Ezra.
The next day we were off the see my sister to get Noah an extra pair of glasses. He breaks his often and then he is without glasses for sometimes a few weeks.
                          He loves his great Aunt Wendy and she is so wonderful with kids.
 We were told the lenses were in stock so we had about a 1 1/2 hours to kill. We ate lunch and we rode the merry-go-round.
I had also signed him up for some kid's classes at the White Bear Center for the Arts. This is what he made the first class.
                     We also made some homemade strawberry popsicles with real strawberries.

                                       I was in charge of filling the popsicle containers.
 Here they are ready for the freezer. These were really cool popsicle containers. They worked great!
I got the recipe for the strawberry popsicles from this book. The popsicles were delicious and so easy to make.
Noah's second class was all about Native American art. It was a two day class and these photos are what he made in the two day class.
But we are not done with the week yet. There is still a lot more to come. Stay tuned.
