    prepositions of place and time

    would you please check this paragraph and add to it three or four sentences containing prepositions of place.

    when my grandmother wants to visit us she comes in the morning on weekdays. Whenever she comes, her grandchildren aren't there and she complains. And then I tell her they are in school. They go to school by bus at 5:30AM. i tell her that if she wants to see them she has to come in the afternoon or on Saturdays or Sundays but she doesn't listen.

    You could also say:
    Her granchildren are never there when she comes.

    "She gets up early" doesn't fit with the rest of it.
