Brag Board - Children and Grandchildren
« on: April 04, 2014, 06:59:14 PM »
We have three daughters who are very lucky to have fabulous husbands.  They have given us seven grandchildren and we just learned we have #8 on the way!
DH said he thought we were done with that and my reply was I don't think it was our choice.

We'd love to hear about your children and grandchildren

OK, 4 kids including the step one, 8 grand children and 10 great grand children.  The great grands run from 1 year old, just, to 14 year old.  5 grand children are not married yet.   :)

They are spread across the country from the northwest to the DC area in the east coast.

I got married for the first time at 61 in 2010, yeah I'm a miserable old cuss, and inherited 4 beautiful grand daughters aged 7 months to 8 years. Never had a lot of patience for kids but these girls have taught me a LOT. A hug and  "Grampaw we love you" brings me to tears.

Two sons, two great daughters-in-law and one grand baby on the way...Both of my sons waited until at least 30 to get married. My sons now run the family business so that I can sit back and play with my toys, they are doing a better job than I ever did in running the business.

I am very proud of my boys...Godly men both.

We have one daughter, two grandsons, and four granddogs. All but the younger grandson (5 years old) are into agility competition. The older grandson (8 years old) just received an invitation to compete at Junior Nationals. It seems that he and his dog are ranked 27th nationally.

I see from the mention of the grand dogs, that I forgot the 12 grand horses that my son and DIL have in TN, 10 TN walkers and 2 Irish Gypsy horses.

Smiling.  My children and grandchildren are my greatest joys.  Whenever I've had a stressful week or feel a little lost someone will say... "Nana, do want to come over for some hugs?"  It always makes my eyes tear up and I always feel better after collecting my hugs.

Just one son who is 15.
Very proud of him. He goes fishing, shoots guns, likes to tear down and repair engines, is part of a blacksmithing club, keeps his pants pulled up and has no interest in loud obnoxious music or video games.

Pleased to announce grandchild number eight arrived yesterday morning.  We get to meet her in two weeks.  That makes seven granddaughters and one grandson.

We have been married for 42 years this month!  Two Sons. 
  One son 38 (this month) who is in the Nat'l Guard and works for ATT.  He has two wonderful children, boy 13 and girl 11. They had so much fun with us at Winnebago Grand Nat'l Rally!   

Our second son (what a surprise and joy he has been)  that is 19 and a junior in college.  We travel around to his cross country and track meets.  We use the motorhome for this during spring and fall but NOT during winter indoor track season.  Most meets are in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio.

Followup:
Erik and Tug (his dog) had a great time at Junior Nationals. They finished second in Tug's size class, and fourth place overall. Erik is eight years old. The top three finishers were 15, 17, and 17.

The only downside is that Tug is getting old and arthritic, and will be retiring.

4 sons, 8 grandkids, 3 great grandkids  4th in the oven.  The great grands are from only 2 of the grands, so I expect a bunch more, if I can just hold out long enough to meet them.

Tim and I will have been married 50 years next year (we were 6 when we married.... ;)   )  We have two sons; one married---one not.  I'm waiting for the not married one to get on the ball; but he's beginning to get "stuck in his ways".  We have one beautiful 10 year old granddaughter. 

I don't know how those of you with lots of grand kids do it.  We'd be broke and exhausted...... 

BTW, great thread.  We forget with all the RV talk around here that we all have other lives.

We are supposed to be grandparents in June, now that was a shock.  Son is 46 this year, first and likely only
child, his wife is 36.  I had given up on being grandparents so we were really surprised. 

Sadly though we are going to be old before he becomes an adult but hope we can stay healthy and lively
enough for him to enjoy being around us and vice versa. 

They are having a little boy and I believe naming him Tommy Lee, that is also our sons name.  It's my husbands middle name and his moms middle name.  Sue Anne was named after my middle name Sue and moms first name Anne.

This thread has been very quiet so we are beyond pleased to add some news.  One of our daughters announced today that we will soon be blessed with our 9th grandchild!  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!   :)
We have a new grandchild coming in December. DD is doing this the old-fashioned way; we don't know the sex yet!  :) Can't wait for our Christmas visit. This will be grandchild #5. We are so blessed.

I'm so glad this thread was revived. I somehow missed it the first time around. Our two grandsons are the reason we got interested in RVs in the first place and the reason I found this forum (Daughters live in Portland, OR & we are in Plano, TX). I think that one of God's greatest gifts to man is to make everyone's grandchildren the prettiest and most handsome and smartest and funniest of all. Now that's a miracle to rival all.

Our youngest grand daughter will be six in February. Her dad called today, she has read all the kindergarten books at the school and is now starting on grade one material. This kid is a quick study. She got to pick her Xmas present, a guitar, and is excited to start learning with her dad, an accomplished musician, as her teacher.

I was having an interesting conversation with my grand-nephew over Thanksgiving. He's three.
The boy is brilliant. Obviously has my genes....
It's frightening how advanced he is. How do I know?

I asked him what is the best thing about pre-school...
He answered: "We get to sleep." :) :) :)

I have one grandson that we saw this summer for the first time in about 8 years.  He's in the Army at Ft. Bragg, NC, in the airborne and jumping out of perfectly good airplanes.  We are quite proud of him.

Can this thread include Nephews?
My nephew is an up and coming 26 year old professional musician. (Trumpet player).
Here he is last weekend smoking cigars and drinking beer at the Eau Claire 52nd Street Jazz Festival with the legendary Doc Severinsen until the wee hours of the morning.
Oh my gosh...the Doc still has the pipes. What incredible performances - by both of them. Even after all he's accomplished, the Doc is quite down to earth and sincerely interested in the young talent coming up the ranks.
My bragging on this kid has reached insufferable proportions. I'm quite proud....... LOL

Proud parents of 4 grown children; 2 boys, 2 girls.  We have 11 grandchildren ranging in age from our 21 year old grandson (who still comes to visit every weekend), to our 4 year old triplets (2 boys, 1 girl) that we also get to see every weekend.  Life is good. The other 7 grandchildren live in a different state so visits are not as often.

Im very proud of Dave. Hes grown up to be the man I always hoped he would be. Mike is also a great guy. They are both really caring compassionate people and so are the women they married. Could not be more happy with them.

Two grandkids, girl 7, boy 5. They love to go camping with Grammy and Grampy. We've taken them to Disney in Florida, to a wedding in TX and 6 Flags in Maryland.  And several weekend jaunts to State Parks around Delaware. All in our tiny Winnebago Winnie Drop.

We have absolutely no one, zilch, nada in our family who can read a single musical note.  The family now has our 13 year old grand daughter who discovered her love of music two years ago.     

She was 11 when she started playing the clarinet, then moved on to the base clarinet, and then to bassoon while she was teaching herself piano and taking voice lessons.  She decided she wanted to play percussion in the marching band and the only percussion instrument available was a base drum and even though she is only 5' 2" and less than 100 pounds she was game to learn it.

If that wasn't enough she also took up acting.  She recently had parts in the Lion King and Legally Blonde.  I've lost track of the number of music concerts she's played in.  To top off everything she is an honor roll student.

She is an overachiever like her Mom was.  Tonight she asked me if she could come camping with us to kick back and relax.  We are thrilled and I am especially looking forward to spending time with her because we both love horseback riding.

She is only one of our nine grand kids.  We are blessed to have lots to brag about.
