As a tool for the entire family, the multigenerational bucket list—a collaborative endeavour—lets you create a list for a family life of no regrets. So gather young and old and write down your top to-do’s. From road trips, day hikes or a trip to the museum, to learning to row, picking blackberries for pie or bike riding along the Trans-Canada Trail, Vancouver Island offers a lifetime’s worth of things to add to—and then check off —your family’s bucket list.To that end, this issue of GRAND features articles on topics ranging from travelling with grandkids, 10 things
to have on hand when your grandkids visit and the five top photo-sharing apps, to sleepover solutions, grandparent giving and learning from our grandchildren while “on-the-job.” There’s 7 Grand, a compilation of ideas and inspiration to help keep you in-the-know and connected to community, there’s an article on the “grand feelings” and logistics of long-distance grandparenting and there’s a profile on poet, novelist, essayist and kid-at-heart, Linda Rogers, on the importance of celebrating and supporting children and families.We hope this issue of GRAND inspires you to celebrate those you love, to make—and tackle!—plans that excite and inspire you, and to appreciate every moment we have together.
