PROUD GRANDMA


We had the opportunity to attend our Granddaughters "Peace" program at her school.
All the 2nd graders made tye-dyed t shirts and sang 8 numbers by heart and gave many speaches about what peace means to them and what their wishes for peace are.
It was a touching, colorful and fun program to watch. During different numbers various symbols were held high for all to see, such as the globe and peace dove. They all sang their hearts out. It made my day.
Enlarging the picture will show the colors more clearly.

That looked like fun. I still remember singing B-I-N-G-O in my 2nd grade class in front of all the parents on stage. Hope it will be as memorable for your granddaughters.
