Soccer!

In most countries it’s called, football, but we are here in the US. These were some of the players at last Sunday’s game. The sport is becoming more and more popular…thank goodness. One year my female ESL students indicated they wanted to understand the game. Oh, boy did I love that unit. I don’t think my son-in-law thought I could do it…he didn’t know how many soccer games I attended when my kids were playing.

Shopping Carts

At our local Safeway, parents/grandparents are provided with this unique type of shopping cart to occupy the little ones while they get the shopping done. The only problem, as I see it, is they also put all the snack/grocery type things kids love on their eye level…do not drive this cart down the cereal aisle. Baby girl got “Little Pony” treats and Coco Pebbles cereal. (I didn’t even know who little pony was until this shopping trip.)
Being a fun grandma, I am making the appropriate car (rumm, rumm) noises, and telling Baby Girl to turn right or left as we navigated the fruits and vegetables. I noticed an older gentleman giving me a strange look..he started laughing when we came around the apples on his side and he saw BG. He confessed he thought I was talking to myself.
