first and last

Grandson Bailey hadn’t become part of my life as he headed out the door for his first first day of school. But I won’t let that little detail stop me from sharing this fun two-photo series of his first day of school (of the first year he joined our family) and his last day of high school, which was today.

B-last day of school

What a great “kid” he is!

I remember the first time I met him. His daddy was showing me his office in Denver, and Bailey happily hurried ahead to hold open each of the doors for us to walk through.

But I’m not the only one who took note of his good nature. At the Gilbert Christian High School awards ceremony last week, Bailey was chosen Senior Student of the Year. The plaque reads: “In recognition of Christ-like character, excelling in academics, and a positive influence among his peers.”

Com’on! I’m his grandmother; you can’t expect me to be humble about that! Oh, and did I mention he was also awarded Athlete of the Year?
