Thank you to everyone who was able to join us for our grandparents picnic. We had a great time visiting with you all and watching the interactions between you and your grandchildren. It's a heart warming sight watching all these little eyes light up as they see their grandparents arrive. Between the hugs, the conversations, the eager pulling of the hand, exciting gift giving, and meal with you, it's clear to see that grandparents have a tremendous impact on a child's life. Thank you all for allowing the children to shower you with love and show you around their little school. ... See MoreSee Less
