We've started a new tradition at our house: Wednesdays are Family night. It is so easy to get caught up in the sports galore lifestyle, and congest our evenings with driving back and forth for extra activities. We've been there done that, and although there is much to be said for organized sports (our boys are on basketball teams with Coach Daddy), we are going to reserve at least one night of the week for organized FAMILY!
So last night was Family night numero uno... On the agenda was:
--Make a plan for Giving this year...we are going to be intentional about giving to at least one organization/week or providing needs for people in the community at least once a week up to Christmas."We're gonna get AFTER we give!" Check out your local radio stations for ideas...our list keeps growing!
What got me most, was my nine year old seemed to feel the same as me. He said, "That was happy and sad."
I asked, "Why was it sad?"
He knew. He felt the small loss of innocence...not that he's not innocent now, but he knows that to play like that now is not for him...he's outgrown it. Daddy spends a ton of time with his kids now...they play guitar together, drums together, play sports, go to the local nature trails...Daddy is a superhero! But, my little boy is growing fast and he knows it. We need to make these days better than each yesterday.
