Going to Work With Daddy
Kevin makes an effort to take each of the older children to work with him for a special one-on-one day with Daddy each year. This idea began years ago when we heard of 'Take Your Daughter to Work Day'. Presumably, the philosophy behind this is 'Daddies, Don't Let Your Babies (Girls) Grow Up to be Housewives'. :) Maybe, maybe not. But we have taken it as an opportunity for each child to see what Daddy does every day and make some special memories. Taking Rowan for the first time this week seemed like a great idea since things are slower at Kevin's office this week. She was so excited and packed her purse full of drawing supplies and a book for the times when Daddy needed her to entertain herself. She was treated to gifts of candy from Kevin's coworkers, a special lunch in the campus cafeteria, and a tour of the campus. What a fun day!
We are enjoying these last few days before Christmas by spending time with each other, baking Christmas goodies, and having friends over to play. We're halfway through Focus on the Family's excellent audio version of A Christmas Carol (which we listen to every year), and hope to fit in It's a Wonderful Life and The Star of Bethlehem, too. We'll be celebrating Christmas on Saturday, so 'our' Christmas eve is tomorrow night! Exciting! Blessings to you all as you meditate on the miracle of our Savior's birth!
