Reason 261 I love homeschooling

Yesterday we were able to eat lunch with my parents as they drove through town. They were going from the Houston area up to Oklahoma and decided to take a bit of a detour through our little town.

We met at H*bby L*bby and then went to have a wonderful lunch together.

I hadn't told the kids who we were meeting - or that we were meeting anyone - so the look of surprise and joy on Juniors face when he saw "Grandfather" was priceless.

As a side note, we read Heidi last year which started Daisy calling him Grandfather and then Junior picked it up. So it isn't that he chose a stuffy sounding name.

And this is something we couldn't do if they were in school . . . or at least I would feel guilty about it.


  1. That's a very fun surprise for the kids... and there are LOTS of things to be learned from grandparents... listening to my inlaws teaches me a lot about history!

  2. Oh that was a wonderful surprise for your kids!

  3. How fun! I would love to be able to do stuff like that with the kids. It's adorable that they call him Grandfather. Heidi was my favorite movie when I was a little girl.
