Earlier this year I noticed how my parents and other family members make an effort to get to ‘school’ events. I looked back to when our children were enrolled in a traditional school and how their grandparents would all make the effort to be present Grandparents Day. Then I noticed that since we’d been home schooling, our kids' grandparents had stopped taking an interest in our children’s schooling.
So I announced that we’d have a Grandparents and Family week. My parents, hubby’s parents, our elderly neighbour (almost family) and one of hubby’s brothers all made the effort to visit, share some food and enjoy seeing what the kids have been doing this year.
It really was a wonderful week.
And I'm sure our guests enjoyed it too.
