Family Friday: STARFISH & BOOKWORM


Meet Starfish and Bookworm. They are my two oldest grandchildren. My handsome Starfish is "five hurrahs" old. He says that his next birthday he will be "six hurrahs!" Starfish is a rough translation of his name, Japanese to English. He loves Superman, and this Halloweeen he will magically transform into the Man of Steel. He began kindergarten this fall, and he loves ham sandwitches--without the crust!

Bookworm, my most beautiful granddaughter, is ten-years-old, in the fifth grade, and she is a voracious reader! Books have become her favorite thing. The two of us used to have fabulous tea parties, and play imaginary games with mermaid dolls. Once we made our own puppet theater. Now she likes music CD'S and High School Musical. Isn't she growing into a lovely young lady? By the way, she also loves Blogging!

It's so nice to be introduced to your family, Pepek, and from your words I can tell you are so proud of your grandchildren and love them very much. I have been gradually doing a similar thing, introducing our kids on flickr, though for me it's a very slow process since I want to make sure I do it "right." I should just do it, eh?

they are beautiful - those two youngsters. Nice to meet them!

Thanx, everybody. Yes, I think they're pretty fine. And maureen, I have been looking at yours! You have a great-looking family!

My goodness, they are LOVELY.

It takes a great deal to provoke in me any regret at not having such for my own.

This just did.

These are very beautiful and fine grandkids you got here, Miss Assassin.

And very lucky ones too, because they have a grandma who loves them so much.

They are precious! Five year olds are so fun and 10yr old are like spring flowers.

Love pics of Starfish and Bookworm, cute as buttons. Aren't you happy that Bookworm loves to read? My granddaughters all read constantly and I'm so pleased.

They are gorgeous! And it's always a good sign when a child likes to read and write. :)
