Keeping Up With Grandma

I read the book, “Keeping Up With Grandma” written by John Winch. This book was a fun book to read because Grandma had so many hobbies that she liked to do. It reminds me of myself when I am very active in Boy Scouts. I enjoy participating in the many different activities that our den encounters like outdoor camping, fishing, hiking, archery, selling popcorn door to door, public speaking, and racing for trophies in the pinewood derby. Anyways, Grandma likes exploring caves, horseback riding, canoeing, baking cakes, dancing, and riding in balloons. She is always trying to get Grandpa to participate as well in many of these hobbies or sports, but he is just not interested. All Grandpa wants to do is rest and do what they used to do. Take life easy, and enjoy the simple life of being at home together. I liked this book because it reminds me of the many fun times that I spend with my Grandma-Nana at soccer practice, traveling, or at home watching movies and television.
