Looking at Your Place – Grandpa’s 80th Birthday0001
Originally uploaded by teachergal
I’m teaching George Ella Lyon’s “Looking at Your Place” Lesson later today. Therefore, I thought it would be nice for me to get in the mindset that the kids need to be in when they do this.
I decided to try going through the steps using my late-Grandparents’ apartment in Florida as “my place.” Though it was never a legal address of mine, it felt like a home away from home since I was there many, many times in the 29 years that one or both of them lived there.
I have not finished the final step, the memoir, about my Grandpa’s 80th Birthday when we flew down to FL to surprise him. I will get to it, but it’s something I do not wish to rush. In the meantime, here’s what I have.
