Treasures of being Grandparents

One of the main reasons we moved to Utah after we retired was to be closer to our grandchildren. We wanted to attend their concerts, plays, recitals, musicals, etc. It has been a delight to watch them participate in their activities.

Here are a few of our favorite pictures and videos from performances or activities our grandchildren have been involved in.

Isi sang in the BYU-Hawaii Concert Choir. It was thrilling to watch and hear him sing.

Princess has also sung in school choirs and has a beautiful voice. Ali’i .has an amazing voice also!

Most of our grandchildren play the ukulele, piano, guitar, or other instrument.

Jacob Tupou is into writing and loves books. He has sung in some performances at school and keeps a website going called allthewriting.com

Ileina has lived closest to us since we have lived in Utah so we have attended several of her performances. She was in a Polynesian dancing group together with her cousins, Anna and Eryn.

Ali’i and Robbie are very skillful in sports. Ali’i has excelled in volleyball and Robbie in basketball. Check out their dancing skills here, especially Robbie!

Eryn has been learning the guitar and she loves riding her horse, Flash. She participated in a horse competition.

Zion is a good speller and has participated in spelling bees at school. He was recently in a musical and always fun to watch.

Joseph played baseball when he was younger and he has earned his black belt in karate. We were able to be there when he received it.

Izabella is so full of fun and participated in plays at school. She loves to dance and is a very sweet happy girl.

Lily has shared her singing talent in Friends to Friends and on numerous occasions. Her parents have let her experienced wheelchair dancing, sports, and being in plays at school.

We feel so blessed to be with our grandchildren during these important times in their lives. I remember my grandparents and they lived an hour away, so they didn;’t attend any of our activities.
