His mom sent us a list of school supplies a couple of weeks ago. We had a great time shopping for everything on the list: notebooks, pencils, erasers, stapler, highlighters, crayons, scissors, folders. Hint: it's a lot easier and way less costly buying supplies for a 3rd grader than a high school or college student! (We're saving now for that time.)
On our return home from our Cape Cod anniversary weekend, we made a quick stop in RI and rendezvoused at a Dunkin Donuts near the grandkid's home (this was just before starting South Beach). Of course, Granddaughter Ellie had to check everything out, but she doesn't enter pre-school until next fall, so no supplies for her.
A happy pair posing together — Bobby and grandpa Grenville.
This serious moment for both grandkids is a definite rarity.
