Grandparent's Day 2014

Friday was Grandparent's Day at HCA.  The kids have worked for weeks to prepare songs and bible verses for the big day.  Finn was excited to see us. Present to see Sam and Finn were, Mom, Greg, Dad, Deniece, Me and Michael.
First they said the "Pledge of Allegiance" and sang, "My Country Tis of Thee."  Finn was chosen to be the flag bearer. He did such a good job - all except for the fact that he had his left hand over his armpit.

This was my favorite part of the whole program - Finn was so precious.
Next they said a Bible verse and sang "If I were a Butterfly."
Then they brought Sam' class out.  There are two little boys in the 2 Year Old class; Sam and Caleb.

Sam's class sang two songs:  1) The Alphabet Song; and 2) Be Careful Little Eyes.  Sam didn't sing a word of either.  In fact, as the songs progressed Sam grew more and more introverted.




However, when their portion over, Sam's head popped up and he started clapping like a conquering hero.
Finn's class was next.  They identified letters and number.  They also counted to 20.  Sam, who has been quiet as a mouse the whole time he was on stages, started counting, loudly, with Finn's class from the audience.

Last they sang, "You are my Grandma/Grandpa" (to the tune of "You Are My Sunshine").  I was so excited to her this one.  Sam has been singing it all week and it is so precious!  Well, Sam stood in the very back - behind everyone. . . .
 . . . and looked as his belly. Oh, that stinker.
After the program we had snacks in the fellowship hall.
This is one of my favorite pictures.













Finn, with his two best friends; Brady and Jeremiah.


After the program, Me, Mom, Deniece, Sam and Finn went the chocolate covered strawberry for lunch.  Finn was so quiet and so well behaved.  Sam, hungry and desperate for a nap, was pretty awful.  Sam at half a paeanut butter and jelly sandwich and two chocolate covered strawberries;  his and mine, minus the chocolate.

After lunch the boys went home with Gran while did a homevisit in Portland. Later than evening Gran brough the boys some.  And in honor of Michael's new job, she brought some wonderful surprises for our family.  On Thursday, Michael was appointed by the Secretary of State to be an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ).  I am so proud of him.

Next, the boys wrestled outside while Gran, Michael and I cooked buffalo burgers.  It was a really great night.
