Luckily we did get one quick snapshot with all three "grand" kids after school, when we returned home. This lovely day gave me pause, to think about the role of grandparents on their grandchildren's lives. I know that my Nanny certainly impacted mine.
Here I am with my Nanny, three generations of women, mothers & sisters & daughters & me the granddaughter in the middle.
Below is a more recent multi generational photo with my mom now the great grandmother.
In thinking about grandparent's effect on their grandchildren's lives, I rather like this quote by Alex Haley:
I hope we sprinkled a little star dust that day. I know that we definitely received a lot of sunshine !
