Now that I have kid(s) in school, I’m starting to see crafts / trinkets / papers the kids make in class for certain holidays. I came home from work today and Abby pointed out a fact sheet they all made for their dads. Here’s what the form and her answers looked like:
His name is Jess Clark
His age is 30 years old
His weight is 31 pounds
His job to make maps
His favorite T.V. show This Old House
His favorite food 5 Guys Burgers and Fries
I love my Dad because he is nice!
She got a lot right. I guess she really does listen to me.
On another note, Jen and I have had our share of somber movies lately. In the last month or so, we’ve watched The Kite Runner, Hotel Rwanda, and God Grew Tired of Us. Kite Runner is fiction, although based on typical Taliban / Afghanistan events; Hotel Rwanda is a dramatization of actual events; God Grew Tired of Us is a documentary. None is what I’d consider a heart warmer and each highlights some of man’s inhumanity to man. We sure live in a scary world sometimes.
We have The Boy in the Striped Pajamas in our Netflix queue. Yet again…
