I'm beginning to think I should change the focus of my blog, as I write so much about making books. I guess it's my background as a teacher--always encouraging my students to read and to write. And I do the same with my grands. Let's make a book!
My youngest son is a single dad. He lives about 200 miles away, and when it's his weekend to have his son, he often brings him down here to see us, his grandparents. It occurred to me that my youngest grandson needed a keepsake to capture those times with his dad, and to read when his dad wasn't around. So yes, I made ANOTHER BOOK.
"Perhaps host and guest is really the happiest relation for father and son."~Evelyn Waugh
The procedure is the same as I've described in other blogs about making books. Scan the pictures and/or download to a file on your computer. Go to a book-making website and begin creating. I tried to pick clipart that had a juvenile theme.

That's it! As a grandparent, I just feel we should nurture all relationships that involve our children and our grandchildren. That's the main focus of this blog--that important grandparent role we play. And you don't have to make a book or scrapbook just for a single dad--ANY dad would be thrilled to have such a book.
"No love is greater than that of a father for his son."~ Dan Brown
