I don't see my grandchildren very often. I want them to know me, but visits 2 X a year, SKYPE, and talks on the phone are pretty limiting. What to do? Speaking with my Granddaughter who is in the Fourth Grade, I asked her what her favorite subjects are. She said, "Art, writing, and reading." Me too! I said, "Would you like me to write down my memories of when I was in Fourth Grade and send them to you?" She thought that was a good idea.
So, write I did. Three pages. And I printed off some of examples of my art work. I asked, "Would you like me to send you a photo of myself when I was in Fourth Grade?" She responded, "That would be cool!"
Three pages, plus one page of artwork and a photo of Fourth Grade Moi. Bought a 3 ring binder at the store in her favorite colors, and put some of my scrap booking stickers to work. It was fun. I'll be sending more typed memories when I think of them. I hope she likes it. (First Grade Grandma is for Grandson who is in First Grade). :)
