Yesterday was the Grandparent's Luncheon at Eli's school, and we were blessed that Eric's parents were able to get off of work to make the trip. Eli was excited all morning and told me on his way to school that he was going to share Nan and Grandad with his friends who didn't have grandparents. How sweet is that?! He has a tender, little heart and makes me so proud.
As if it wasn't enough having Nan and Grandad there, Colby came along to surprise him. He was so excited and told me last night, "Mom, all of my friends kept looking higher and higher until they saw how tall Colby was. Then they said 'wow!'"
After the festivities at school, Eric's parents met us in town at the mall so that we could visit during our lunch break. I think they enjoyed it ever bit as much as Eli did. It means so much to us that they made the long, hard drive from Western KY to support our boy. There's such a special bond between children and grandchildren.
Happy Grandparent's Day!
