She invited Grandpa Dickens to be her guest for the day. He was delighted to come and be there with her and it sure made her day!
The class put on a small program for the grandparents. There is Samantha in the back. She was so concerned that Grandpa wouldn't see her back there, but it looks like he had a pretty good view regardless.
Samantha was also excited because she got to do centers with Grandpa. This is when they rotate to different tables for learning activities.
Samantha's favorite part about the experience was when her teacher was reading a story to everyone, and at the end, to go along with the story, her teacher pulled out a spray bottle and sprayed the grandparents as a surprise. Samantha couldn't stop talking about that!
I am so happy that we live close to family and I'm happy that Daddy was able to come and participate with Samantha. It really made her day and made her feel important. :)
