Every weekend we get our grand daughter for Friday, Saturday and Sunday and I wonder if she looks forward to it as much as I do. I never know what she will want to do and play but I am ready, (I think).
She loves it when I pick her up after school and today I am picking her up a little early so she will like that even better.
After checking in with the office they call her classroom to let the teacher know that I am there. I sit in the lobby waiting for her to come from her classroom. As she spots me she breaks into excitement and can't wait to tell me of her day. She is bringing home a "Special Bear" for the weekend and that she has to turn in on Monday a report of all the things that she and the bear did for the weekend.
as the children see the bear sitting in their class it reminds them of the fun that they shared with "Lovey."
Well as you may have already guessed where our weekend would began, yes, McDonald's. How can you turn down such a great place to eat or have a snack and play on an indoor playground with other kids your age.
When I showed her the picture on the camera she said I needed to take on closer up. So....
She said that she was going to take "Lovey" through the tunnels and then down the slide so she could experience what she liked best about the playground and then she could sit on the table and watch while she played.
After playing for several hours, we decided to head for home and to relax before having to pick up Grandmother at work.
When we got home Chloe wanted to color on the computer and play a few games. She said this would help her relax.
It's Saturday morning and she is up early to get started on her weekend. We play dolls, color at the table with the crayons and she gets out her word cards to start her class (me and Lovey Bear) are her students and she teaches us how to write our letters and to learn our words that she has learned this week at school. She tells me that when she grows up that she is going to be a real teacher not just a pretend one.
Grandmother brought Chloe a package and wants her to open it before she goes to work. She is so excited to find out what her surprise is.
We then take Grandmother to work and then afterwards we head on over to Pop and Great Grandmother's house. We sing as we drive down the road. "Over the river and through the woods, to Pop's house we go. Our truck knows the way, to get us there today, So that I can jump on the trampoline."
When we get there we see Pop and Great Grandmother and Aunt Emily. I show them "Lovey Bear" and tell them what we have been doing. Great Grandmother wants to know if I still love school, and I tell her that I do. Pop is going to take a nap and Emily is busy getting lunch ready.
Poppy and I head outside to jump on the trampoline. I love this trampoline that sits in the shade of the Pecan Trees where you can watch the dogs laying in the shade and hear the calves mooing and watch the horses as they come up to be petted and fed. What is not to love about Pop's house and all the things you can do there.
