Family Trees and Youth

Brumley Branches - Family Trees and Youth
Reece Handy with his school project
Brumley Branches - Family Trees and Youth, it is never too early in your life to learn about your family tree. My grandson Reece had to complete a school project this past week. The request went out to all the relatives to please send a picture of themselves so that he could finish his project. His second-grade teacher had given him the assignment of making a family tree. He worked hard on his project and as the picture shows he has many people in his family tree that he cares about and who makes a difference in his life every day. I would like to thank his teacher for such a great assignment. 

Family trees not only show us who we are related too, but who is our support system throughout life. They are the people who show us how to play baseball or soccer. The people who are there when we have a bad day or a good day. Family tree members are the ones we vacation with or go to sporting events. They are cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, great-grandparents, and parents and we cannot leave out our pets for they are also family.

Each one of us creates memories with family tree members who last a lifetime. The people who taught us how to fish, how to ride a bike, how to jump rope or how to be a great person. They love us and want us to be the best we can be. 

We need the family tree to see how fortunate we are to have so many people involved in our lives and sometimes it takes a school project to see it up close. It gives us a direction of where we come from and where we are going in our life.

Memories with our family tree members will forever be a part of us, as we start our own family tree one day. Those things we learned when we were young will be passed down to our own children. Reece's family tree is an example of how he can visualize how special he really is to his family. Great job Reece!!!!
