Some of my most precious childhood memories are of times spent with my grandparents, and I hope that when my own grandchildren are all grown-up, they will feel the same way. If you have ever had the opportunity to be at Floresville North or South Elementary on Grandparents Day, you have seen with your own eyes that there is just something special about that connection between a grandparent and a grandchild. This connection couldn’t be more obvious; it’s shown in the way faces light-up with wide, cheek to cheek grins as they give great big hugs. I am not only talking about the kids, but the grandparents, too! Many thanks to FSE and FNE staff who worked hard to plan this opportunity to not only honor our grandparents, but to give grandparents one more chance to show their grandchild just how important they are to them.
Not only are grandparents a delightful blend of laughter, caring deeds, wonderful stories and love, but there is so much we can learn from them. If you are fortunate enough to still have your grandparents, make sure you reach out to them today and let them know how very important they are to you! Happy Grandparents Day to all of the awesome FISD grandparents.
