Grandparents Day at the school went great! It was scheduled to begin at lunch time and grandparents or a special person were encouraged to bring a lunch to share with their little person. He had told me that the evening before and asked if I could bring Mickey D's. I did and we enjoyed eating and talking together. There was a paper on his desk with questions on both sides for him to ask me and write down my answers. Most of the questions were about what school was like back when I attended and how different was it today. Some were questions about subjects I liked, what I played out for recess and what kind of lunch I brought to school.............I didn't take a lunch to school. Back when I went to elementary school, they were all neighborhood schools and the kids lived close enough to walk home for lunch every day! The above photo is courtesy of marcia.ashley
Amber did end up coming down this weekend. I had to drive up to a city called Wellston and pick up Doug. He had been working there all week and we both wanted to go and watch Amber play in a basketball game in another little town called Walkerville. I had to leave at 6 AM in order to get to where Doug was and turn around and drive back to where Amber was going to play. She asked her daddy if she could come back with him and if he could take her back to her other Grandma's in Cedar Springs on Sunday. He said sure, so she came back with us. She went to her Dad's home and spent the night and when it was time for her to go meet her mom, her dad, for whatever reason, couldn't take her so I had too. I asked if she had everything she came down with and she said yes, so off we went.
After arriving, she decided to look through her backpack and discovered she DID NOT have her basketball jersey or her hooded sweatshirt with her name on the back. I told her I would make sure she had it before Saturday's game at 11AM. Went to her dad's the next day..........looked through the dirty clothes pile and sure enough, I found it. Brought it back here, washed it and quickly ran to the post office to purchase a priority mailer and sent it to her overnight mail.
I spoke with her on Tuesday and she now has everything that she thought she had before leaving her dad's! She said "everyone should have a MEMA"! Ah, if all of life's problems were so easily handled, eh?
