“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning.  But for children play is serious learning.  Play is really the work of childhood.”  Fred Rogers

I woke up this morning, after being away for a week  at my 365 Vegas Meetup, to find a little girl at the side of my bed yanking on my pillow and saying “Up YaYa!  UP! Play!  Me!” over and over . . . until I finally rolled on to the floor and played “blocks’ with her.  As much as I enjoyed my time with my fellow 365’ers, I really missed my precious little Grand Daughter, and apparently she missed me as well!  Moments like this are just to precious to waste.  

I had to document it as my 365 Self Portrait for the day.  I’ll be leaving again in a week for almost a month in Hawaii . . . so I cherish each and every moment I get with her.  I just love watching her at play . . . she is so intent on what she is doing.  One second she’s immersed quite seriously on the task at hand, and the next moment she is reduced to a belly laugh and giggles that consume her whole body.  Who can resist that??  Sure gets my day off to a great start!  



“The day the child realizes that all adults are imperfect, he becomes an adolescent; the day he forgives them, he becomes an adult; the day he forgives himself, he becomes wise.”  Alden Nowlan

I met up with a fellow 365’er today.  We had never met before, except for in the forums.  I drove from Vancouver, BC to Seattle to pick up my Grandson who flew in from the East Coast to spend the next 6 weeks with me.  Since she lives in the Seattle area, we arranged a meetup for lunch.  We had such a nice time!  My 13 year old Grandson was such a good sport – putting up with two crazy photogs . . . I love how he posed for this photo.  



“My childhood may be over, but that doesn’t mean playtime is.”   Ron Olson

My husband found a box full of old wooden blocks that he played with as a child.  How fun . . . so we got them out for our Great Nephew.  He was having so much fun . . . I decided this would be a great 365 picture.  Unfortunately I didn’t realize until I brought the picture up on my computer that the focal point was off, but I kind of like it!  

My Great Nephew really got in to playing with the blocks too . . .
