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.
They are studying the history of North America in light of Thanksgiving
She was showing me her math skills
We were making some bubbles with a hand mixer
Giving her a vision for the nations and to be a “world shaker and history maker” 🙂
