I love elephants, don't you? There is something so sweet and cute about them. My granddaughters surely love them, too, which doesn't surprise me a bit--because their daddy went through a serious Dumbo phase when he was about their age. So no ABC book would ever be complete if there was not an "E is for elephant" component to it.
I'm not quite sure why I put the arrows on that page. I didn't do it on any of the previous pages, knowing that my girls are plenty smart enough to pick out the objects on their own. (They're Mensa-like. Seriously. No Grammy bragging going on here.) But since I felt the need to point out the egg and the ears on that page, I decided to have the lass on the next page pointing to her elbow.
For the first time since I started this project a couple of years ago, I am exceedingly motivated to finish. For the longest time, I was in extreme procrastination mode; but now when I complete one page, I can hardly wait to get to work on another.
But the ABC Book will have to be put on hold for the next week-and-a-half or so, because today I'm flying down to NYC and meeting up with my husband (who's returning from a trip to London). Then we'll fly together from the Big Apple down to VA, to spend Easter with son #3 and his bride...and then it's on to WI to pick up our oldest son's second car and drive it down to his new home in MI, where he and his family are moving the day after Easter. So...at the end of all those travels, we'll get to spend some time with our three granddaughters. Yippeeee! And I'm sure just being with them will get me even more excited to keep working on this project once we return home.
Well, time to pack. Have a blessed Easter, and I'll see you next week.
