Grandparent’s Day

on September 10, 2011

Jimmy Carter signed the proclamation creating Grandparent’s Day in 1979. Who knew it’s been around so long? Grandparents create special relationships and impart lessons that last a lifetime. As Carter wrote, “Grandparents are our continuing tie to the near-past, to the events and beliefs and experiences that so strongly affect our lives and the world around us.”  This holiday is celebrated on the first Sunday after Labor Day. So September 11 this year.

I am SO on it this year. Honestly, I barely remember there is a Grandparent’s Day let alone when it is. I just happened to be in Hallmark a few weeks ago when I saw their display with Grandparent’s Day cards. I wouldn’t have remembered had that not jogged my memory. I had been looking for activities to do with Emily in the afternoons now that she has started school. I had craft block, too much work to do going on. The upcoming holiday lit a fire under my butt.

Emily and I made two crafts last week to give to the grandparents. Zachary had a hand (har, har) in one of them. We already gave my parents their card and gift. They loved it! I am sure Stephen’s parents will love theirs as well.

Happy Grandparent’s Day!!
