Ever since Kenz could make letters, she's been gifting her papers to different family members: To Nana, To Daba, To Mom, To Dad. She must be thinking about us at school. Occasionally, I ask her if the other children do this and she will say something like, "Alissa's grandma doesn't live here so she writes- To Mom."
I am grateful for each of my papers and have a huge collection. Thank goodness for scanners. I have a file called Kenzie's art. Once I scan a paper, I still have a real hard time throwing it away. By the time she is in eighth grade, I will be over my head in papers, like I am with my books, magazines, flyers, letters etc. Ahh! Words... and grandchildren....gotta love em and gotta treasure them.
