As you well know if you have been reading my blog for any length of time, my girls have a great network of grands! And when something is going on in their lives, we have a bevy of supporters at the ready to come and "celebrate"! This is Thanksgiving lunch at their school! First up... Gabbi Girl.
Gabbi's lunch was on a Wednesday this year which really helped as it was one day earlier and further away from a busy weekend! In the photo below, we have from back left to Gabs... My dad, Pops, his wife, Nana, Gabbi's dad, Todd the Bod, the girls' surrogate grandmother, Kimie, My mom, JinJin, me, and the star of the show, Gabbi Lou.
I'll admit, it kills my soul to see some kids with none there to sit with them. I'd say 90% or so of the kids have a parent or grandparent there. So, those who don't sort of stick out like a sore thumb. The "includer" in my wants every one of them to come and sit with us! I did ask a few, but they'd already buddied up with another kid and family member, so all was right with the world.
