Watch Them Grow - First of The Month

August! (Summer finally arrived in the valley this week!)  And it is the  First of the Month, the photo meme hosted by Jan @Murrieta 365.

The goal is to capture one thing repeatedly on the first of each month. It can be a landscape, a person, an animal, a project; whatever your focus is, is fine. It can even be a record of where you are each First of the Month. 

My theme is my three grandchildren, Zbub, Mizelle, and Dinkum. It is called: 
Watch them grow!


For the most fun ever get a FREE box, cut a door and some windows and then just play. It can be a fort, or you can perform surgery in the hospital, or it is the neighborhood home of a new family moving in.



And if you are gone for a couple days, send Mizelle in to do a spider check.  Little sisters are good for something!


Post your new photo and link up HERE!

Boxes make great toys. You have beautiful grandchildren.

Teresa said...

That is just the perfect toy to entertain grandkids!

And sissy gets her own room for being the spider checker? Too bad appliances don't always come in huge boxes anymore.

Can you believe that we've kept up with this meme for eight months? That must be a record.

LOL - the facial expressions... the one sitting upright says, "Oooh the unspeakable horror!" and the brave one says, "Scaredy cats! There's nothing in here."

I remember spending hours in a refrigerator box... my parents didn't get new bigs boxes very often and the ones that did, hung around for ages!

What is it about kids and empty boxes? Sometimes I think they like the boxes better than what comes inside!
