Personal Invitations You Can't Refuse

By
Managing Real Estate Broker with Flexit Realty "Flexible Home Selling Solutions"

I have my most important appointment this week... Grandparents Day. 

I received an invitation from one of my granddaughters that May 20th from 9-11 is Grandparents Day at Personal Invitationher school.

She sent a formal invitation in her own hand writing, asking if grandma and I could come. 

She is 6 years old and her school is holding Grandparent's Day.  We can see her classroom, participate in activities, tour her school, and meet her teacher and friends. 

Afterwards, have lunch with her and the rest of the family.  This will be the joy of my week and my most memorable appointment of the week.  

Not only will it make her day to her grandparents show up....it change her whole day where she feels loved and a bit more special.  A six year old can never get enough of being special!

So many of the children will not have anyone show up.  Ths is because of distance, conflicting work schedules or perhaps they are no long with us.  Regardless of the reason we plan on spreading a little joy to all her classmates with some cupcakes.

I am sure the teacher will appreciate the kids being all sugared up and having us go home! :-)

That is great that you are there to go to the event -- in this day and age of many families being spread all over the country , many grand kids just do not have a close by grandparent to be there. Enjoy.

Hi Brian, my grand daughter likes the outdoors and the flowers and little bee kind of signifies who she is at this point in her life.  We'll have fun.  Thanks for the comments Brian.

Hi Ed, we can enjoy the children and share a smile or too with them while meeting the emotional needs of our own grand children what more could we ask for...that is what life is about.  Thanks for the comments Ed.

Hi Tim & Pam, this is the real stuff in life that makes everything else worth while.  People come and go in our lives but those that are part of us need to be cherished and helped.  This is a big bad world and nothing is easy.  Thanks for the comment Tim & Pat.

Hi Bob & Carolyn, we always go to the events and we bring something for the class when we come.  It makes the children look forward to seeing us and we have a great time.  Our grand children would rather be at our home than their own because we are at a different station in life.  We used to be just like their parents!

Being a grand parent is great fun!  Thanks for the comments Bob & Carolyn.

Gary, One of the great benefits to our profession is the flexibility of our time.  We never miss the lunches and plays that others don't have the opportunity to see because of their work.  Went to a play yesterday for our grandson.  Turns out he wanted to be a stage hand - went to a play to see him put the props in place.  He enjoyed it and was happy we were there ... so were we.  Enjoy your visit and lunch - no doubt you will.
