Wow! September is upon us. This year has flown by already. With the start of back to school means Grandparents day is soon to follow. When the boys were younger the elementary school always hosted a grandparents day breakfast. All the little ones were able to invite grandmas and grandpas to join them at the school for their special day. It was something the boys always looked forward to. And I think my parents did as well.
Of course the little ones must grow up and they don’t offer that sweet annual breakfast in the high school or the middle school for that matter. So this year, we will have to host our own Grandparents breakfast, or maybe lunch. After all grandparents are the ones that love you, teach you and nurture you to the fullest extent. Then they send you home covered in chocolate, dirt under your fingernails and rips in your jeans. It’s just what they do! Am I right?
Unfortunately, I lost my grandparents at a pretty young age. But the memories I have of all of them are some of the fondest memories of my entire child hood. Wandering around the garden with my Gram.
Eating … I mean picking strawberries and peas. The delicious food she would make and force us all to eat even if we were not hungry at all. Something about a plain ol’ tuna sandwich just tasted better when Gram made it.
My Children are also very blessed when it comes to grandparents. The best moms and dads always turn into even better grandparents. Being around them just makes them happy, and really brings out the best in the boys. I’m very thankful they have wonderful Grandparents to turn to.

This year we are planning to go with a grandparents brunch. And I have come up with lots of great ideas for the menu. I can’t wait to get in the kitchen to cook up this perfect meal for a few perfect grandparents.
