Grandparents' Day Tea

Last Monday E's school had a special treat for grandparents to celebrate Grandparents' Day. MeeMaw drove all the way here from TN to go with us. It was very nice. I enjoyed it because it was an excuse to be in her classroom and see some of what they do each day. There were not a lot of grandparents there, so I was so glad we went. First off, the kiddos did a learning sheet at the table. They usually do that every morning until all the kids are there.
Then they came to the floor and did the days of the week and the date and I think the weather. They also sang some songs for us.
Each student had made an adorable picture frame for their grandparent with a fun picture from the playground in it. We had muffins and juice together and then the kids sang us a goodbye song. I think E really enjoyed having us there. She made MeeMaw's day when she looked up at her and said, "Thank you for coming to our party." With no prompting at all.
That made the 5 hour drive all worth it.

That's so cute. Isn't it so weird to send the kids off for the whole day without really knowing what they're doing all day, or how they are behaving (talking a lot, being shy, etc.)? I wish I could be a fly on the wall for a whole day! Ellie looks so sweet in her pretty dress!


I'm so glad Meemaw had a great time...and I totally agree with Melissa about everything she said! ;-)
