Grandparents' Day

We got an invite to the grandchildren's school for 
Grandparent's Day!

Adam's mother and I drove together to the little town up north.
We visited Hannah's 3rd grade class first.

 Each child took turns introducing their grandparent and said something special they did with them.  Hannah said she likes to go to Chucky Cheese with Gramsie.
When she introduced me (she calls me Nana), she said she likes to go shopping with me.

Then we were also to say something special about our grandchild.  Gramsie said how creative Hannah is and enjoys crafts.  I mentioned how we like to take walks and that Hannah takes good photographs.  I even use some of her photography in my blog!
 Each grandparent also was to tell a little bit about their school days and how it was different than today.  Things like the girls had to wear dresses, or had to walk 2 miles to school (up hill and back in the snow, right?).  I mentioned how I rode the train to school, 3 hours one way, so that I had to stay in a dormitory during the week.

After visiting Hannah's class, we went to Sophia's kindergarten.

 The children showed us their classroom and some of their work.

They sang some songs for us.  Very cute!!

As we left, Hannah and Sophia showed us some of their art work in the hallway.

And of course, any good grandparent takes their grandchildren out for a little treat after any program!!


Psalms 103:17  “But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children—”

"What children need most are the essentials that grandparents provide in abundance. They give unconditional love, kindness, patience, humor, comfort, lessons in life. And, most importantly, cookies." – Rudolph Giuliani 

"Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children." – Alex Haley
