Last night was Elliott's school carnival. Wisely, since this is a spring event, it was held inside with a different game-of-chance in nearly every classroom. Elliott's school includes Kindergarten through sixth grade, so the halls were packed with students, siblings, parents, and grandparents. As we fought the crowds, we kept hearing, "Hey, Elliott!" It didn't matter their age or gender, it seemed everyone knew Elliott. Clearly, my oldest grandson has embraced his elementary school.
The other fun thing to see was two-year-old Jonah walking the school halls like he belonged, refusing to hold anyone's hand. We just told Jonah which way to go and away he went without fear or hesitation. He also played most of the games. And, when he won a pair of silly huge glasses, Jonah proudly wore them for the rest of the evening.
For sure, neither of my grandsons is shy. They both are extremely outgoing and sociable, the complete opposite of their reserved parents. Based on last night's experiences, it's going to be fun watching where my grandsons's cordial personalities take them.
