and Papa -- Rachel
George and Lea Wells: these are the grandparents in the art work. They
live about 5 miles from us, and Rachel and Joshua and Rebekah spend a
few hours with them several times each week. Because the children are
homeschooled they are able to do things with their grandparents during
the day. The children love to ride Papa George's horses and pick blackberries
with Gramma Lea in the summer. Joshua and Papa like to fish, and Rachel
likes to help Gramma Lea with her flower beds.
Rachel is nine years old and enjoys drawing, reading, horses, and gymnastics.
She would like to be an animal rescue officer or a veterinarian when she
grows up. She plays the violin and is a great swimmer.
Joshua is eight years old and likes science experiments, riding his ripstick
skateboard, and playing baseball. He would like to be an engineer when
he grows up. He plays the violin and is entering his third year of Cub
Scouts, where he is a Bear.
The grandparents in the second picture are Russell and Joyce Martin of
Heth, Arkansas. Russell is 63 years old, and Joyce is 59. They have been
married for 43 years! They live about five hours away, but the children
love to visit them several times a year. Rachel and Gramma Joyce love
crafts and reading together, and Joshua likes to take walks around the
pond with Grampa Russell.
Rachel and Joshua's parents are Mark and Sharon Martin, and their four
year old sister is Rebekah.
