So, today Pops and I are beginning a new tradition: a one-on-one weekend with each grandchild. Our 5-year-old granddaughter will be our first special guest. She's said that she wants to learn how to draw a zebra or a giraffe, so a friend will give her an individual art lesson. Then the 5-year-old and I will go to the park and later come to Pops' and my house to play some board games.
Our grand told me that she wants to play with "Mr. Potato Head," so she'll definitely do that. She'll make funny faces on the same brown plastic "potato" that her daddy played with many years ago. (My, where do the years go?) We might bake a batch of cookies or take the dogs for a walk. And tomorrow Pops and his little legacy will go out for breakfast—just the two of them.
I just hope that this will begin a long tradition of making special memories with each grandchild!
Do you have any ideas about how Pops and I can make this weekend memorable for our granddaughter? Have you had one-on-one time with your grandchildren?
Future generations will be told about the Lord. (Psalm 22:30b)
Have a great weekend,
