Grandparents Day At Grandkids School!

What a day I had on Friday! I was invited to Grandparents Day and over 200 grands and good friends of the children came to a beautiful luncheon and assembly. And we got to spend time in their kindergarten classroom too. My grandson showed off his talents on the basketball court for us! He is really quite adept at shooting baskets!!! You can see how proud of himself he is here right after making a basket. My grand daughter helped me capture all the wonderful art on the walls in the outside hallways of the school.
Inside was their collection of caterpillars and silk worms.
And the kids made Challahs for each of us to take home. We celebrated the Sabbath with them.
For those of you following and/or participating in the ABC ATC blog here is an example of more Hebrew letters (which I have been making as my part in that blog challenge).
The kids had written out questions to ask all the grandparents. What fun to see them learning to read and showing interest in our lives too.
More Hebrew letters around the room...the Grandpa in the lower left of this picture was my first husband.
My grandsonis quite the drummer too. He participates in a drumming class and he and his classmates put on a wonderful performance for us all on stage at lunch time.
They kept the beat and it was so much fun to see and hear.
Later we played at the park across the street from the school. Then went to their home and had a lovely Shabbat dinner. We had time to play. The kids always ask me if I brought toys...of course I had my "Grandma's Bag" and they dug in and found new books and beads and we all sat on the floor of their room and made bracelets for each other. It was a very full and wonderful day. I am filled to the brim with joy!
