Latest Random Granddaughter News
August 4, 2009
My daughter called tonight. The Barely Extended Family’s travels and visits with various grandparents have become so complicated somebody at the same level and experience as those who arrange Obama’s travel and itinerary needs to be involved.
At the moment, the schedule is that my wife and I will go visit the mommies and Random Granddaughter next Friday. She is involved in something very exciting in her preschool and did not want to miss it, but she will deign to join us in the afternoon.
The weekend after that Mommy’s mother and stepfather will go hiking with Mommy, Mama, and RG in the Olympics. Then we will meet at the island county’s fair.
We also learned that RG has become a bit weary of her career as a painter and is moving into music. First a friend (about 12 years old )started teaching her recorder. RG wearied of that fairly quickly.
Now she has embarked on piano lessons. There are several incentives. Her best friend, Mia, is taking piano lessons. (Mia’s family also owns a piano, which RG’s family does not.) The teacher is an adult, with quite a bit of experience in teaching children. Random Granddaughter is rushing headlong into adulthood.
