Goodbye, Great Grandpa (23/180)

J and D went to their Circus School classes.

D made an entire paper birthday party to enclose in a birthday card, and J copied the words "Happy Birthday" all by herself:





R baked cookies, reading a simplified recipe independently:



The kids' great-grandfather died on Friday, and they were able to go visit him to say goodbye earlier in the week.  He was conscious, able to accept touch, hugs, and kisses.  We also got silly with their great-grandma:
