There are a few moments in my life that are very special to me, but one of them sticks out above the rest. When I was younger, my parents were separated, my mom and dad both worked full time, and I lived with my grandparents. Living with them was great, I have so many memories from growing up with them and they all mean so much to me. But the one that I think of the most often is when they made me skip school.
I lived with them while I was in Pre-K and Kindergarden, I don’t remember which I was in when they told me I wasn’t going to school that day but who would complain? They told me we were going for a field trip, I didn’t know where we were going but I didn’t care. We ended up at Fort McHenry in Baltimore City, and walked around for a while. Some of their friends were in town and they met us while we explored the area. I remember that day so well, and it holds a place in my heart. They even bought me gel pens!
I’ll hold the hundreds of very special moments with my grandparents forever, I am beyond blessed to have them around.
