I just reread and really enjoyed. One thing that jumped out at me this time around is that not one comment was made about the other Grandparents adopted by the KIMCC. I understand this story was about Karen and Grandma B and Nancy and Big Mama , but wasn't it odd (or is it just me)? that we don't even know the names of any of the others not even Hannie's. I think it said 10 of the KIMCC participated and that there were 6 women and 4 men. I would have enjoyed reading about one of the Grandpas, maybe Ricky's and just having the story be a little fuller that way. Did Nancy keep in touch with Big Mama and Big Daddy after this book? I don't remember but hope she did.
I also realized once again how much better I like Nannie typically in the LS than BSC. In this story she and Karen talk about grandparents and grandchildren and Nannie assures Karen that she (Nannie) loves each and every one of her grand-kids be no matter how they came into her life (biologically, step, or adopted) I really liked that scene and wish Nannie had shown the same compassion in Karen's Birthday but won't get into that (again) here.
