If you have followed me for long, you know I have three beautiful grandchildren - two boys and a girl. Last weekend was a time to celebrate one of my granddaughter's victories. She joined the 100 club at school last week. That means she can both write and verbally count to 100.
While it's a big deal for a kindergartener to reach that level, I've never known of parents who threw a party to celebrate the accomplishment. Until now. My stepson and daughter-in-law invited some of the family over for cake and ice cream.
My husband and I were delighted to attend. My stepdaughter and one of my grandsons along with my husband's ex-wife also joined us to shower my sweet granddaughter with love and accolades.
She was so cute. I asked her how many of the kids in her class ad joined the 100 club. She smiled that enchanting smile and told me four or eight. She wasn't sure, but she knew she was the fourth one to make it.
After visiting for a couple of hours and enjoying some tasty strawberry cake and vanilla ice cream, everyone left except my husband and me. We were saying our good-byes when my little princess came running out of her bedroom with a parachute and asked us to play with her. Who can say no to that?
We played with the parachute for a while and had a great time. I don't think I've touched a parachute since I was in elementary school. She led us in several parachute games with delighted giggles. I'm so grateful for such times with her.
Being a nana is the best job I've ever had. I want to cherish every moment with my grandchildren because they'll be grown up far too soon.
I wish you all love and laughter!
