Happy Grandparents Day

As all my family live in New Zealand and it is Grandparents Day tomorrow, I have a special post just for my Mum and Dad. Unfortunately they don't get to see the kids as much as they would like, but they are never far from our thoughts and we talk to them frequently on the phone.

To celebrate Grandparents Day Jess' school had a special assembly yesterday. Earlier in the week her teacher asked her to draw a picture of her Grandad, which would be put in the hall on display with all the other pictures from her class. This is her picture.

She sat at the table for ages drawing and then brought it in to show me. With a slightly confused look on her face she said to me "Grandad does wear glasses doesn't he Mummy". I had a bit of a giggle and reassured her that yes he does, which immediately put a huge smile back on her face.

The assembly was great with heaps of people coming to support the day. I was so proud when Jess received a special teacher's award for her artwork and then the Student of the Week award for her class.

I will leave you with this beautiful picture of the kids I took this week and we all hope you have a great Grandparents Day tomorrow Mum and Dad. We miss you, but will see you soon.
