Bruins' Grandparents' Day

Today was a BIG day at school, one all the lower school students look forward to, it was Grandparents' Day!  It's always fun to see the kids proudly walk their grandparents into their classrooms, and introduce them to teachers and friends.  Grandma did the honors today, and she was in charge of the camera, but getting involved with the kids makes it hard to take photos!

The day started with a program in the gym.  Showcasing student talent and each class getting a chance to sing or recite a special piece.  Brant's class got to see a sweet "good morning" song, and I was able to slip in to see it, between classes.
Brant's kindergarten class...all 22 of them!

Moving into the classroom, where they made some art together.  It was quite fun for them, and the added bonus was that Natalie's Nana was there too. For those of you who don't know, my sister-in-law Carla's brother's daughter is in Brant's class.. that sounds so confusing, but it's not. Basically we are all family, and it's fun to have them part of our BDS family as well.

Of course, one of the highlights of the day is that the kids get to leave with their grandparents (you won't find that in public school!) and Grandma and Brant had a nice lunch out at the Choo Choo restaurant (Southbound Sandwich works), painted pottery at Mad Platter and then enjoyed looking at the animals at the pet store.

Now we are all home, Daddy too.  What a great way to begin our weekend.  Tomorrow, first soccer game!  Look for a new post again soon!
