Smaller than a Sprout?

Seedling?

The next is just the Germinator?

My grandson called. He can't wait to start Kindergarden next week. He is all ready, and he gets to ride a bus! He can also ride a two wheeler without training wheels now! I got a video on my phone that said "Look Grammy, no training wheels!". Too cute. Big smile. :)

Got an email from a kid I worked with during his HS years, big problems, probably one of the toughest cases I have had. He is now a young adult, and has since gotten his Associates degree, and is now working on his Bachelors degree. After all the blood, sweat and tears nursing him through four years of high school, I could not be prouder of him. Sure made me smile!

I have another one. Another phone call. A girl I worked with when she was in high school called. She is going to be 32, and happened to run across my phone number. She called to say hi, and to tell me that I was a great mentor for her when she was in high school. I was smiling-even though o was Aldo feeling old. How can she be 32?!

Much smileage, Chopper! I still get Christmas pics, cards, occasional phone calls, etc. from kids I worked with years ago. Now some are almost as old as I am! ( not really, just seems like it).
