Do you have a special Valentine's Day plans or is it just another day? Did you have a Valentine Party at school when you were growing up? We all have our own special way of celebrating a day. It is fun to watch the younger ones how they do for their celebration. My middle grandson decided he was just signing his name on the from spot then he could just put one in each of his classmates boxes without worrying about putting the wrong one in the wrong box. You know he just might have a good idea in that respect. The fun part was always making the heart sugar cookies and decorating them. You aren't allowed to send home made treats to school anymore.
The memories of growing up can never be taken away from us. We look at each day forward as a day of making more memories, some may be fun and some may be painful, but that is life. To think about what we went through in our times and what the younger generation is going through today is really two different things. How do you explain something that is wrong when it is a parent that is doing what is wrong to a child growing up? What happen to teaching the child how to lose as well as win? I spent last Saturday watching my youngest grandson racing his pinewood Derby car. You watch them compete against each other and the expressions on some of the faces were happy when they won, but when that lost came, there were tears, with the parent telling the child the race was rigged. I thought what does that teach the child. My grandson couldn't care less what happened. He was there for the fun. He did come in 2nd in Districts which we were proud of him. After the race he went over to the little boy that won told him congratulations and shook his hand. They talked a few minutes about their cars. He lost by an inch to get to go again the second time with the same little boy. Grandma was really proud of him of where he place and also what he did after the race. You don't see that much anymore. It is called sportsmanship
My oldest grandson had to get all dressed up yesterday because the Governor was playing a visit to their school. They got to observe the swearing in of the Agriculture Director for the state. There is over 80 kids in their FFA group.
My grandson's basketball team play on Sunday. They won so far they have only lost one game. It was snowing when I left home and snowing when I came home. The car didn't cool off enough to have to clean snow off of it. It was enjoyable to watch.
Hubby is trying really hard to walk and he is showing some progress. It took conversations to get what we wanted, but really I don't see why it has to be that way. If we could only get the problem resolved with them keep shoving his roommates bed over on his half of the room. Their solution is for my hubby to move. No that is not the solution there is other ways of resolving them. Why should he move when he was there first. We will see if anything happens or if we just got lip service yesterday.
