Indulge me

I hate to be one of those insufferable grandmas that are always flaunting pictures of the grandkids, but today is Back-to-School and they're just as cute as can be.

Here are my three great-granddaughters leaving for school this morning. It's supposed to get over 90 F again today so they get to wear shorts.


My youngest grandchild, Allen is starting his last year of high school today as well. I suppose I should say something profound here but I'll just quote Matthew Broderick in Ferris Bueller's Day Off,

"Life moves pretty fast; if you don't stop and look around every once in a while, you could miss it."

My mother,
I have this motto in life - Grandchildren are our reward for raising our kids. We get to spoil them and love them, then send them home.
You have been a wonderful grandma and an amazing great grandma. So if you want to show off the trio, go right ahead !
We all love you !!

I always took pics of my kids on their first day of school. It's interesting how a child's personality will come through even in their stance. Three little beauties. I hope the year is a good one for them.

They are adorable. Can't believe your great-grandchildren are so grown. Feel free to flaunt your wonderful family whenever you want. You have so much to be proud of (and grateful for)!

Consider yourself indulged!

Showing off the grand-sprogs is a primary function of grand-parents!

They are soooo cute! And it's almost mandatory to brag about grandkids and great-grands.

The great-grans are beautiful! And congrats to the senior grandson! What an exciting time. I remember my senior year...that quote is very apt! I wish I'd paid more attention back then :)

Cheers!
