Last week we had our oldest son's Senior class's Christmas party. They ate out at a Mexican food place, toured a nearby town's Christmas lighting display, and then came back to our house for gingerbread house decorating. Afterwards they used fun Christmas photo props for some funny photos.
While not every classmate chooses to come to the get-togethers, we're thankful that so many of the class does. I remember telling this group their last year of elementary school (when I would do their school parties like I still do), "Some day you'll look back and be glad you did these things...fun things...childhood memories".
Some may think these kinds of things are silly, childish...who knows what, but I know that these kids are really young adults who are about to embark on an adult world....and a little fun and special times making these kinds of memories is something these young people will never forget! We're just glad to be a small part of their fond memories, and pray that when they are in our presence they know we love and care for them. Because we do!
