I love being with my grandchildren. I usually drive two of them to school twice a week here in Pennsylvania. When we lived in Florida, we rarely seen them except Jordan, who lived there with my daughter Ann. Next Saturday, my birthday, eight grandchildren will be here to visit and take me to dinner! 🙂 It will be a fun and lovable day!
