Oh, she is so adorable. Hahaha, I can't believe there's a long list of lefties and I recognize a lot of the names. My sis is a leftie using scissors but she writes using her right.

Enjoy your week.

Keri Jill is so sweet - you captured her perfectly with the photos - I love that her right hand is up near her hair while she is thinking/talking to Pop Pop.
I recognize almost all of the lefties - funny, we don't have any in our immediate families.
Blessings to your entire family this week.

Adorable mosaic! She looks so interested in what Pop Pop is telling her ;)

So interesting about all the Lefties!

Susan Wicker said...

Had no idea so many famous people were lefties! Your granddaughter is a lucky little girl to have her Pop Pop and visa versa. So many children don't have that beautiful luxury. What a blessing! Sincerely, Susan from writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com

Your granddaughter looks so adorable!!!

My hubby is left handed. I also heard somewhere that left handed people are much more intelligent than right handed people because they have to work extra hard in this right handed world. I can agree! I think my hubby is very smart.

Enjoy your day!
