Tomorrow, November 2nd is the annual Grandparent's Day at one of the grandson's school. This is something I have gone to every year since he started school. Yes, he has another "Grandma", but he always asks me to come. And I always say "yes"! I never want to miss an opportunity to spend time with any of my grandchildren...time is too short and I want to build great memories and strong bonds with them all!
This year it is only for an hour ~ during the lunch hour ~ so I will call him tonight and find out what he would like from Mickey D's, and go and have lunch with him. It seems as if every year, there is at least one of his friends who, for whatever reason, does not have a grandparent there. He always tells them that they can join us! Shows a lot of compassion for a young boy of 10, and I am proud of him for doing so! He attends a charter school and the kids come from differing walks of life and the diversity is great!
This is his last year for this event. The upper grades don't do this..........just the lower elementary classes. But it won't be MY last year! His younger brother begins school next fall and it begins all over again!
