One of the things I really enjoy is volunteering at Amara’s school. It gives me a wonderful opportunity to experience the excitement behind the scenes. I hope as you read these you will think about volunteering or that you will consider joining your local PTA and giving some of your time to your grandchild’s school. It shows them how important you think their education is and it gives you lots of chances to get extra hugs!

It has been over 2 weeks since I wrote about the highlights of our summer. Once again, we’ve been busy having fun and I just haven’t taken time to write about it. “Taken time” somehow makes it seem like there was time – there has been no time!
