Because I took a full year off from blogging, there were a number of things that I truly missed posting about. So, I figured, from time to time I’ll play a little catch up!
Background: At age 5 each of our kids was able to go on a trip to Disneyland with Mommy. All three of our kids made special memories with Elisabeth as they sort of put a capstone on that prior-to-school age of life.
At age 12 each of our kids gets to pick a place in the United States where they get to go with Daddy. Kid-choice, really cool. This was something that Elisabeth’s Dad did with their three kids and a tradition that I was all-too-happy to carry on!
Similar to age 5, we feel like we are capping off an era (elementary age) and launching a new stage of our relationship with our kids, young adulthood!
I cherished every minute of that trip.
If you’re a parent, consider doing something like this (doesn’t matter where you go, even if it is just a series of daytime activities out of our own home). We laughed a lot. We had silly conversations and deep meaningful conversations. We built memories that I will forever thank God for!
