A Day in the Life of Karissa

Today, Karissa and I headed out to her school at 6:30PM. It was a special day. All the kids in her class invited one of their parents to come and experience what a day in school is like for them. I decided to go and make it a daddy/daughter thing.

Karissa’s excitement was contagious. Even though there were pressing things that I needed to take care of, I realized that the excitement in her voice to show me everything in her classroom dissipated the stress that I was feeling.

It was great to go through a tour of all the things that she does in a single day. There were so many choices of learning avenues. It was like a little “Hands-on-Museum.” Christina and I are thankful that we can send Karissa to this school and have her mind stretched and her imagination expanded.

Sometimes in the midst of all the busyness and stress, I need little reminders that these moments will soon pass and it will never come back again – this is why I need perspective and appreciate the moments that God gives me with my daughter. There will come a time when I will have to give her away in marriage (very, very reluctantly); therefore while she is still with me, I will cherish the moments.

“24” is Back (Finally)

After a one year hiatus, the T.V. show 24 will be premiering a 2-hour special movie this coming Sunday, November 23rd. It is called, “24: Redemption.” This will try to explain what happens between seasons 6 and 7.

I think many people were disappointed with the last season. The first 3 or 4 seasons were pretty heart pounding and adrenaline pumping. But season 6 was pretty over the top and it began to lose some of the appeal.

Nevertheless, true “24” fans are not phased. We are a dedicated bunch of people. After this Redemption movie airs, season 7 will start on Sunday, January 11th. Then it will start showing on Mondays. Now on some of our date nights, I think we are going to watch it together.

You can check out the trailer of “24: Redemption” below.
