Grandparent's Day

Grandparent's Day is coming up on Sunday, September 10, so I asked my kids 13 reasons they love their Grandparents. This is a list for a total of two grandmothers and one grandfather. (By the way, I LOVE Denise's idea to share things we like about ourselves. But I had just done that last week.)
1. He takes me fishing.
2. She bakes great cookies.
3. She gives me clothes.
4. He lets me ride in his boat.
5. She lets me help at her work.
6. She's nice.
7. He made me an ice shack.
8. She's a great artist.
9. She plays UNO with me.
10. He bought me a Shimano 2000 reel.
11. She plays Yahtzee with me.
12. She listens to my stories.
13. They're all family.
