In 1979 Jimmy Carter urged the nation to celebrate this holiday for the very first time. He said, "As we seek to strengthen the enduring values of the family, it is appropriate that we honor our grandparents." Take a moment today to plan a little gift or tribute for your grandparents this September!

One year our family made family tree charts for each of the grandparents. The charts started with the children, of course, and went back four generations. It was a small project, but I could tell that all the grandparents liked the fact that our children were learning about their family.
