Sorry for the pictures being first......Blogger hates me......
I need to say.....thank you for loving and gifting my grands. They are so involved in my blogging because of their interest in all of you. They know who you are and what you do. They know your families as you have shared and they feel like you are their extended family. How lucky are they to have so many wonderful aunts, grandmas and loving lovelies.
Ry has some favorites that he just has to find out about when he gets home from school. The looking in on how life operates in your "neck of the woods" has been so monumental for his growth and development socially. I know I've told you in the past, how he has shared with his teachers that he has friends in Sweden, the Netherlands, Portugal, Canada, The British Isles, NYC, the Pacific Northwest and the heartland. And he uses those terms. He knows where you all live on a map (great teaching moment) and he is beginning to use the flags of the world and state flags and can identify them fairly well in his drawings and "arting". You have made a difference in his life. Thanks.
GK, has the same, if not more affection for you my dears. She asks about you specifically and has even taken to wanting to comment on your blogs. The warmth she shows when relaying a story of yours to her Mom or Papa when they get home, the sadness she shows when you are "under the weather or hurt", the pride when she reads of your accomplishments are all embroidery on the cloth of her life and will of course only add to the great caring woman she will be. Your examples are truly undeniably essential.
And then some of you send more than your thoughts of concern, love and caring and surprise them with gifties. I will tell you I am blown away by it all and I never know whether to picture your gifts or not. But I have decided that I am not going to be shy about any outpouring of love anymore. So for those of you who have sent things and I kept it silent, I am sorry, we did and have welcomed your gifts and been blessed by them.
And to Auntie Donna from Froggyland of So Dark So Cute....thanks for the fun for Halloween gifties. Since this picture was taken, the boy has secured his room with the tape and we are working on a banner for the wall over his pirate drawing desk. GK has decided to gift her new girlfriends with the bags and also use the stickers on her school books. You da bestest Auntie Donna and they did in fact deliver the hug to me as requested by you.
To the fabulously talented Marlene of Marlene's Musings, well thank you does not seem to be enough for not only sharing your talent with the drawing of the grands favorite Apollo and Diana but your love to the grands. We are humbled by your gift. The drawings are on their walls in their new spaces and will be forever treasures.
