A granddaughter weekend

Madame X and I had a great weekend -- great because it featured time with all three of our grandchildren.

Elsie, nearly 17 months, is learning the fine art of feeding oneself yogurt.

She enjoys going outside -- and her "walks" are mostly "runs."

The next day was a birthday brunch for Claire. How many 5-year-olds
would allow their 2½-year-old sisters to open their
birthday packages? Well, here is one. Lise happily does the honors.

A world map jigsaw puzzle was an early hit.
Claire already knew the names of the continents.
