A Milestone with our Grandkids Today

It is hard to believe that our oldest grandson Andrew started high school today (all honors classes) and our granddaughter Hannah started middle school today. The "baby" still has a year before starting preschool.

Thanks ladies! I sure wish I could see them again, but they will be pretty busy for awhile anyway!

Barbara: What a handsome Gent & adorable Lady

Barbara,

Thanks so much for posting the photos of Andrew & Hannah.

He is quite handsome and Hannah is adorable. I remember when I first joined D.C. in January 2012, and you utilised Hannah´s photo as an Avatar. She has grown up considerably ... I believe you mentioned she was about 10 in that photo and resembled your daughter very much at the same age.

Have a wonderful August and Labor Day Holiday.
All my best.
Margi.

Thank you Margi. Yes, that was Hannah in my avatar, and yes she looks a lot like her mom and my mom as well. She was probably about seven or eight in that picture, and she is now eleven. They are both growing so fast, although Hannah is a teeny thing. Andrew is taller than me and Hannah is catching up to me.

I am sure you are so proud of 'em you are about to bust! I would be!
They sure do grow up in a hurry.

Yes they do! I'm still in shock that my daughter is about to turn 33! It doesn't seem that long ago that she was their ages!
