May I brag?

Sunday I was working on a project when the phone rang. It was one of my favorite granddaughters. We had a long chat and through much questioning out came a piece of news that I think should be shared by all her friends. I know she will never tell people. And so I will ask her if I may leak the news.

This granddaughter has gone through a rigorous series of classes, both mentally and physically draining. She finally told me that her written report had the highest grade ever given in her state. Or her test results were graded the highest ever in the state. She will have to correct what I reported. It was so thrilling to hear and I know all of you will agree with me, now that she will have to come 'out' and correct me.

Hope you will forgive me, dear granddaughter

Congratulations to your granddaughter! Is it, by any chance, the one who hangs out with a certain coyote? :). I adore seeing grandparents delight in their grandchildren. You've made me smile.

Hey, that it so super!
I am happy for both of you! (I am not a grandma yet, but I sure delight in the things my daughters do, so I think I can relate!)

That Shreve, she didn't tell us that!
Brag all you want. She's something to be proud of.

Who could stop a grandmother bragging?! Really! :) She gets at least some of her brilliance from you.

Dear Ms. Svensto:

Isn't that Shreve something else? Congratulations to the both of you.

On another note: Here's a great blog about folks in their nineties doing wonderful stuff!

I love reading Ari Seth's blog; it's so inspiring---just like you!
