All Grandma's are very proud of their grandchildren. I'm no exception. This month we're celebrating the graduation of our youngest grandchild, David Michael. Beautiful strong name for a wonderful grandson. He is totally focused on improving the world through changes in computers. He's been an assistant to the Tech administrator at high school for the past 4 year and this year was Tech student of the year. Its amazed us that even the tech administrator has him come to his house to deal with his computer.
He works out computer problems in his mind as he walks. Everything I 'work out' has to be on paper not only so I can remember, but so I can actually figure it out. Last year he developed a program that will save many hours for the computers in schools. This year he has developed something that will help to clean and protect computers...
Most of all I love his heart. No matter where he is, school, home - when he hangs up from the phone he always says 'I love you'. What more could a grandma ask?
Students today are taught so much more than we were taugh when we were in school. As we watched hundreds of students recieve their diplomas, it was amazing to consider where they were all going once they left that stage.
Its a time of mixed feelings. His plans include moving to Norway to develope software etc. Its hard to find words that pay tribute to him, as I'm sure each Grandparent... or parent.. finds. He has wonderful crinkly eyes and deep dimples when he smiles. We scarecely recognized him with cap on at graduation since he has adopted the 'techie' beard and full hair. LOL.
David - this is for you and we are VERY proud grandparents wishing you much success in the future and blessings you can scarcely count.
