My A+ Grand Kids...

Hope you are enjoying your Monday. It was lovely here this morning, but now the rains have started! Oh well, guess that will make the flowers grow!
This morning, the school where my grand kids attend, {and I work}, held their annual "Grandparents' Day". They entertained us with music and a mini play; fed us with delicious soups, sandwiches and goodies and let us visit with our grand kids' in their classrooms. It's a tradition at our school that on this special day the grandparents bring a "sweet treat" for their grand kids. Even the kids who for some reason don't have a grandparent visiting find that they have a "Senior Friend", who is interested in seeing their school work,visiting with them and gifting them with some candy.  The kids and grandparents just love it and look forward to it every year.
I've also made up my own tradition concerning this day and post a layout of my grandkids on the door to my Janitor's Room. Here is this year's...




I can't believe how grown up they are becoming! My grand daughter, {grade 7},  is officially taller than me! And my grandsons aren't too far behind her! I am so blessed to have had the privilege of seeing my grand kids pretty much everyday of their lives. They know that I think they are pretty special, and ya know what, I know I'm pretty special to them as well!  I think that is why we have such a comfortable relationship with each other...we really know each other - the good and the not so good things as well! 
Well, that's it for today. I hope I've encouraged you, not only in being creative in your paper crafting, but also in your relationships with the people you find in your life. Make the most of every day!
Until next time.
hugs,
Nancy
