Grandparent's Day with Miss Ava

Most of you know that Jimmy and I became grandparents this year. When Chris married our daughter Angie, we also got a little 6 year old granddaughter, Ava. Then we got our little grandson Otto, so we really got a "two for one" special deal! We were invited to our first Grandparent's Day this morning at Ava's school. We sure felt honored and it was really fun there. You can see that happy face on Jimmy in front of the school.

After an assembly, we were invited to visit Ava's first grade classroom. I was a first grade teacher so many years ago, so this was really fun for me. Ava's Grandma Kathy was there too, so Ava introduced us to her little friend Eleanor and said Eleanor didn't have a grandparent visiting today, so she was going to stay with Ava they were both going to read to us! So sweet.

Both girls are excellent readers and they read lots of stories to us. It was great and they were so excited.

Ava likes this one and actually, she had it memoried. She flew through it and had lots of laughs..oinky, oink, oink!

The  room was loaded with books, lots of books! In this day of computers and Kindles, it was just nice to see kids with real books in their hands.

A proud Grandma Kathy looking on!

Grandma Kathy and Jimmy were getting a kick out of the girls and thier books. Jimmy had to do a few magic tricks for them too.

Such sweet friends. What a joy to be at school today. We loved every minute of it Miss Ava. We love you too!

Ava will be spending the night with us tomorrow. We will be busy playing and hopefully reading!
