Grandparent's Day

Grandparent's Day was awhile ago. I was waiting to post about it. I wanted to get the photo from the boy's school first. It took awhile to get it. The boy's school has the day once a year. 

Mica called my parents to invite them, and told them what's on the menu. He also called my Aunt, which the boy's both think of as a Grandma. She's at every family function. Their Apel Grandparents have always lived farther away, and can't attend events like this. When they are around they love seeing them to.

On this special day Isaak was in the bathroom for a really long time. I went in and saw him looking in the mirror trying to do his water sprayed hair. He looked up at me with his big sad eyes and said, "Mom I just can't get it to look good. I want to look good for Grandparent's Day." Now he had super short hair, and doesn't have to "do" his hair at all.

I thought it was sweet he wanted to look good for this day.

Grandparent's show up, eat lunch with the youngest kid, and the oldest kid gets to leave their classroom to eat with them to. Then they each show their Grandparent's their classrooms, and have a photo taken with them.

The photos have progressively gotten worse. I remember the first one, when Mica was in Kindergarten looking professional, and they gave us copies (one for us, and another for each set of Grandparent's that came). It's still nice that they give us something to remember.

Isaak looks so excited. It's not the best photo of Mica, but he was excited to.

In order it's my Aunt Becky, Isaak, my Mom, my Dad, and Mica.

When I taught we did something similar. I confess I always dreaded it for the kids who didn't have anyone show up, but I tried to figure out some fun activity for the day that would distract anyone with "no shows."
