Grand Parents that want to share their thoughts on this important step in life, please feel free to post!!! As grand parents, we have cleared the nest once, but it seems a bit different this time, watching your genes head off into the world. Number one Grand Daughter is off and running!!! I only laughed when I saw her jeans, and then ran for a camera, she caught me taking the pic, but since she has been a photo subject for so long knew it was fruitless protesting. We had our way of dressing, way back when, and her great grand mother had plenty input about our choice and style of clothes. She finds it hard believe, that there was a time jeans cold not be worn to school, and were limited to work and play, not to mention that they only cost $4 and did not come with holes in them.:biggrin: The older the grand children become, and more mobile, the less you see of them, of course I strongly suspect her visit was a scouting mission as she paid attention to all storage areas, and a scrounging effort will soon follow, in turn I am sure we will have a full days visit. :smile: I would guess that there are many grand's out here experiencing the same thing.
