The Kofford Family relocates to Colorado after 40 years as Californians. In December of 2007, Grandma Lorraine is diagnosed with Stage 4 brain cancer. Sadly, she passed away on Dec. 26th, 2008 after a year long courageous battle. Follow our journey as we keep Lorraine's memory alive, and as we learn to appreciate that each day we are given, is a gift to be enjoyed!

Paper airplanes and spit balls!

All right...Grandma is officially the kids favorite person! Ashlyn's teacher Mrs. Boeke, sent home a few extra readers so Grandma could work with Ashlyn. My mom loves to teach, and since Ashlyn is an eager learner, they are a perfect match! Today they worked on a story from the 3rd grade reader called, "Miss Nelson is Missing." They worked on reading skills, comprehension, etc...then Grandma livened up the lesson by teaching the kids the ultimate classroom to make spit balls and paper airplanes! What a sight to see, the kids and Grandma wadding up balls of paper ready to launch in a straw. Send your kids over...Grandma truly makes stories come alive, and you won't get sent to the principal's office either! :-)
