It is always interesting for me to look back at the week and put this post together. A lot of what goes on during the week is so random that I often forget it. This week kindness seems to be the theme.
First a Question
“Hey dad, when we are done eating can you and me go to the store to buy three finger flashlights?”
She is At It Again
Our climber continues to climb. I guess that is what they do, but it is amazing how quickly she is doing it now.
Nothing says kindness like cake. My kids decorated a cake as a thank you for our friends who let us come to their house during the blizzard. We lost power during that weekend and would have been very cold at our house.
I have mixed feelings about the plethora of ‘feel good’ awards the school gives out. But I was still proud of my son when he came home with a kindness award for helping a friend. Ideally kindness would happen naturally. But it seems that it is such an exception these days that they really need to encourage it.
I guess this has been a theme for him lately anyway. There have been nights when he has done things, without us asking, to be helpful. One night he put all pajamas out and even tucked the toothbrush in for his siblings.
Living the life
I took a picture of all the kids while they were on the couch. The boys were buys with their game, but my daughter gave me some attention. One of be boys said that she was living the life. I am sure she agrees.
I hope you have a great weekend!
