Learning about your past

Gabe's assignment this week in Kindergarten is to pick a community helper and do some research.

He chose to learn about a police officer. And that we did. We learned what requirements the job entails, what he/she does for a living and how he/she helps the community.

Plus, the kids are encouraged to bring a picture of something that represents their community helper.

As it happens, I have this great photograph of my Grandpa Kelley taken during his years as a motorcycle cop. He eventually became chief of police in Ossining, New York.

Gabe didn't know which was cooler - that his great-grandpa was a police officer...or that he rode a motorcycle.

My grandpa passed away many years ago, so it was nice to share his story and his life with my own son.
