grand families

Soccer game1
In the past few weeks, I've been able to attend a 3-year-old’s soccer game, a 5-year-old’s t-ball game, and an 11-year-old’s first school play.  Being Grandma is kind of fun, for me, because I didn’t have children of my own – the children I watched are my oldest step-daughter’s children.  I’m a grandma to six young people now, and it amazes me how much they learn from one visit to the next.  It also amazes me to watch my step-daughters caring for these little ones and guiding them toward adulthood.
