We've had quite a day. We began ours sharing breakfast with our Grandparents, who are sleeping over at our place for a couple of nights.
I got the job of handling car parking for Grandparents Day, at school. Now there's a challenge! The best parking I saw done all morning was by a younger Mum. Yeah, oldies are not quite so confident with interesting parking situations! I had a giggle through it though. One old Dutch Grandma gave the Grounds & Maintenance man a hard time about the street signs a few km's away. Another Grandmother was 45 minutes late. She came from Tullamarine (over an hour's drive). Her grandchildren are late. Every. Single. Morning. Yes, I had to laugh! I shared that giggle with the office lady who has to write those five late passes every single day.
The kids had more fun than I did, I'm sure! They all seemed to be beaming and have something special they'd done together and there was lots of photo-taking going on. I am now charged with the task of getting a hold of the photos relating to our family and passing them on!
And don't you think it's rather appropriate that the Prep-2's had Blue Colour Day today? They would've matched the Blue Rinse Brigade (the Grandparents!) beautifully!
