"God made you beautiful.
You're beautiful, beautiful."
We have five grandchildren.
Each one, of course, is my favorite for each one is unique and wonderfully made by their Creator.
The sweet girlie in today's photos is our oldest daughter's oldest daughter.
She was born, a miracle from heaven, after her mama and daddy struggled with infertility
and miscarriage for over ten years.
Her mama home schools her, and to help out I've been having Nana school with her on Tuesdays.
Two weeks ago Papa was home with the flu, so I didn't want her to come over and get sick.
Last week, we were out of town visiting my ailing mother-in-law.
She was so sad about missing Nana school for two weeks,
so I decided to make today extra special with a field trip to Huldah Klager Lilac Garden,
followed by doing our school work outside at a park near the garden.
Huldah Klager hybridized many, many varieties of lilacs.
My granddaughter loves science so we talked about the science of what Mrs. Klager did
to make this beautiful place.
The garden is now in the national registry of historic places.
Huldah's farmhouse is restored and open to the public to tour as well.
The old farmhouse is always my favorite part of a visit to the gardens.

These lilacs with the white border are my favorite.
They are called "Sensation".
After we left the gardens, we went to a lovely little park on the lake.
After we completed our work in one subject, we took a play break.

It was a lovely day for both of us.
