In addition to skiing, Grant also started playing soccer and learned to swim.

18: WHAT IS A GRANDMA? A grandma is warm hugs and sweet memories. She remembers all of your accomplishments and forgets all of your mistakes. She is someone you can tell your secrets and worries to, and she hopes and prays that all your dreams come true | She always loves you, no matter what. She can see past temper tantrums and bad moods, and makes it clear that they don’t affect how precious you are to her. She is an encouraging word and a tender touch. She is full of proud smiles. | She is the one person in the world who loves you with all her heart, who remembers the child you were and cherishes the person you’ve become. ~Barbara Cage~
