The Mister and I attended Grandparent's Day
at Northern Voices, in Roseville, MN.
Northern Voices is a school designed for deaf and hard of hearing children.
They teach the kids to listen first.
Once that skill is mastered, then to speak.
Today was the Fourteenth Annual
Gingerbread House Building
with students and grandparents.
Once we arrived our Grand #4 was so excited to see us.
She ran up to me and gave me a hug
I thought would last forever!!
Then she modeled her Christmas Dress
a gift from Aunt Kel!!
Now its time to tend to the task at hand
building our house.
One thing I noticed, the size of the milk carton decreased in the same proportion as the graham crackers!!!
We worked hard adding:
and an assortment of other decorations
to our house!!
She was so proud of her Gingerbread House!!!
The project was completed by lunchtime.
We requested permission to take her out for lunch
with the promise of having her back by the afternoon session.
Off to Mickey D's we went!!
She was returned back to school on time.
Before I could leave,
she insisted I take a picture of her with her BFF!!
Aren't they something?
It was with mixed feelings
I left her at Northern Voices.
This wonderful place has been a big
part of her life
for the last four years.
The next time I visit her here will be in June,
when she graduates
will be mainstreamed into the public school system.
After many more hugs,
we parted with a Pinkie Link,
as a promise we'll see each other real soon!!!
And that's the way it is.....................
