My oldest son Rowan came home from school earlier in the week with an ear to ear grin on his face. I could hear the clomp clomp of his shoes all the way up the stairs as he was hurriedly running up to the room where I was sitting. He ran around the corner with his hand behind his back clutching a piece of paper and promptly began to jump up and down to get my attention.
I turned to see what he was so excited to tell me about and as I did, he proudly proclaimed, "Look Daddy! I made a quilt!"
I am such a proud pappa! Rowan made his first quilt. He explained that his art teacher had them make quilts out of paper. He even managed to create "stitches" around the paper pieces using crayon.
We shared a really big hug!
