Hey everyone, My grandson comes over alot in the evenings to spend with me while my Wife goes to work. On the weekends. he spends alot of time woith me. We try and do things together when health and time permits. This wekend I started to do more of the dried ferns and he was sitting there watching pretty close. Between him and my wife they talked me into letting him try his hand at wood burnings. I let him pick out a picture out of my patterns and would like to show you all his works. He did pretty good for his first time. He ask me if I would talk to his Mpother and he wanted her to let him buy a woodburning kit. Well I talked to her and he gets his kit as soon as he saves his money. well enough gabbing heres his wood art.

hes 12, and want to get right in there with Papa. Anything Papa does he want to do the same. I think he is a little spoiled by Papa if you know what I mean. I Love all 8 of my Grandchildren. Zachary here is the oldest. Thank You Jim

Looks like he inherited something from his gramps. Very good Jim. Keep encourageing him and he’ll become as good as you someday. jockmike2
