When I was a little girl, Every summer my grandparents would host a few of us kids for a week at their home.  As there were 7 grandkids, this took up a good portion of a month.  They planned activities to keep us out of trouble.  My grandmother was an accomplished painter, creating oil paintings as well as incredible china paintings.  My grandfather a rock hound, would be always out in his shop, grinding ,tumbling and polishing rocks.
