This Father’s Day let’s show our love and appreciation for the Grandfathers and all those special men that help mold our families in more ways than they know! Here’s a great poem that perfectly describes how we feel:
Those who have tasted a summer tomato sun-sweetened on the vine or a crisp cucumber plucked, or fresh herbs right from the garden, know the intense flavor of fresh-picked produce is unrivaled by anything found in a supermarket. Okay, before any assumptions are made, we know not everyone has this capacity for home grown; however, if you do, we’ve got all the reasons you need to get started* If a simple window sill is involved… so be it! Be sure to involve the grandkids if possible.

As a grandmother of 10 and mother of 4 grown adult children, I can honestly say that it has been so very upsetting to see all of my family so fatigued, stressed out, and stretched to the limits due to this environment of Covid. What we have all experienced will undoubtedly resonate for years to come
Okay, okay ,okay… we will be the first to admit that we do spoil our grandchildren (who doesn’t?!) But, sometimes we might not realize that some of our other “grandma treats” might be really bothering the parents! Here are 5 things that we know our children (the parents!) can’t stand!*
We are pleased to present this special feature from Ken Canfield PhD., Grandkidsmatter.org. Just recently, Ken conducted an interesting survey on grandparents and the pandemic. While so much more data is coming in on various topics, Ken pauses for a moment to share some very interesting results that have surfaced…
Looking for a couple of ways to wow your grandchildren for dessert, instead of the same old ice cream and brownies? These two super easy recipes will excite all the kids and show them whose got all the talent!*
We know grandparenting is a valuable resource for each generation because grandparents bring a dimension of life and experience; and link to our cultural and physical environment. Now, a new study draws an interesting parallel to the benefits of ‘grandmothering Orca style’.
Grandmothers have been helping the human race to survive, and now we know the same is true for Orca whales.
Take a moment to let the Dads in your life know they are truly cherished…

A Father is someone you look up to no matter how tall you grow.
What a wonderful way to celebrate – let’s give all the men in our lives a big high five and some special attention today! This is their day to be recognized, to be acknowledged and to well, maybe get a free pass and kick back and lie down in the backyard all day doing just nothing.
Connecting a child to his/her grandparent(s) by doing an oral history of them is probably one of the most wonderful activities a grandchild can do with grandparents. It can be done easily by having your grandchild make up questions (or use the ones here) to interview you about your life starting when you were a child. I’m sure they will find out all kinds of facts about you that even their own parents don’t know.
