In the daily grind and the busyness of life, we can tend to miss the joy and fun in each day and even miss actually "being" with our kids. It struck me today, that I focus so much on school with my 12 year old, health issues, behavior issues and my desire to "train him up" well, that I am really missing out on getting to know him.
Today I had the opportunity to take my son on a field trip, just the two of us. I enjoyed time to talk to him without any interruptions. It was fun to see his extreme joy when he saw the "Google" logo on the building as we were approaching. Then I heard him say, "Oh, I have always wanted to see this place". He had a blast and he participated well.
