Our First Grandparent Day

[originally published for the November 8, 2014 Friday Memo]

On Wednesday, we experienced a unique morning. Over 35 grandparents blessed us with their presence to participate in Grandparent Day. We enjoyed numerous musical performances from the students during our Music Chapel, in addition to a time for refreshments in the Family Center and time to observe in the classrooms. The teachers had prepared class sessions specifically suited for grandparents intending to observe and participate, and we prepared our lunch tables so that our special guests could mingle among us as we ate.

Family is special. Several more grandparents would have loved to visit but were hampered by distance or work. I hope we do not overlook their contribution to what happened on Wednesday though. We stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before us. We share with them the joys of what we experience for many reasons--not the least being that we often reap the benefits of battles they have fought and sacrifices they have made. Thank you, grandparents! Your grandchildren are a joy to know and train.
