Twelve years ago today this young lady was born.  She is the first of our four grand children.  Five months later I retired from a 32-year teaching career.  That marked my entrance into full-time grand parenthood.

Since Brooke's arrival, there have been three others.  Baby sitting duties have lessened a great deal since those days when the kids were younger.  Everyone is in school now and very involved with other family activities.  Nevertheless, there are still plenty of times when I either get them on the bus, off the bus or we have them for overnights and days when there's no school.  All of this is good and I hope it continues on for a long time.

So happy birthday, Brooke.  May there be many, many more.
