Grandparent’s Day was celebrated at Grace and Corban’s school today! Every year their school sets aside a day to celebrate grandparents and my kids look forward to it each year. My parents live in town and my in-laws live 1 hour away so its so nice that they are able to join in the fun! This year, the grandfathers stayed home so my mother and my mother-in-law had all the fun. They have been good friends since they were in middle school so they walked the halls with their grandchildren in tow this time. Grace showed them her classrooms, her locker and introduced her grandmothers to her teachers and friends.
This was Corban’s first experience with all this so yesterday he kept asking who his “grandparents” were. He was unfamiliar with the term because he just knows them as “Sootie and Boom Pa” and “Nana and Grampa”. 🙂 They walked around his preschool classroom looking at this favorite centers and they met his teachers as well. They all came back to the house to tell me all about it! It was a great morning! I’m so thankful for the influence my grandparents had on me and so thrilled to see my children enjoy the same special love that only grandparents can give.
