Last night we hurried home and got Dave, the dog, settled and then took off for Garrett. Our destination was to watch Kiann's 7th grade team play basketball. We got to the gym and climbed the stairs to sit with Todd, Beth and Graham. When we got there Graham was standing watching the game while doing a little dance.
We were in time for the first half of the game. We watched, talked and played with Graham. Since the team they were playing was Hamilton, I looked around to see if I knew anyone from there. Sure enough I spotted someone I had worked with and a parent of one of Todd's classmates. I sat by her for awhile and caught up on her family. She had a grandson playing, too. However, he was playing for Garrett and was one of Kiann's teammates!
After the game, which Garrett won, Kiann changed and came out to talk to all of us. He had to go over some of his great plays and we had to tell him what a good job his team had done. Then we were ready to take off. Beth looked over at Kiann and said, "Tell Grandma and Grandpa thanks for coming to see your game."
Kiann then came up to me, gave me a big hug and said, "Thanks, Grandma."
Then he went up to Grandpa, gave him a big hug and said, "Thanks, Grandpa."
Boy, for a 13 year old to give his grandparents hugs, we felt very special and very proud of Kiann!!!
