The End of the School Year

Popsicle

Sometimes the best thing you can do for your children is to be there. A few weeks ago there was a field trip for Sammie’s school. They were going to Blue Gap Farm and Fort Fun. I had fully intended to be there, but we got the day mixed up and I missed it. To say that Sammie was disappointed would be an understatement. She came home and tearfully said “Daddy didn’t come today.”

When it came time for the end of the school year party for her class, I was going to make sure that I did not miss it. I made it and when I got there they were already on the playground. She saw me before I saw her. As I walked toward the playground I heard her squeal “Daddy!” As I walked closer she had this huge smile on her face as she jumped around excitedly. It was a moment I will never forget. I will make try especially hard to be at every event for Katie an Sammie.
