So, my son’s teacher posted this on his classroom blog a few weeks ago. Ponder this for a moment….
No, pressure, right?
For the perfectionists and/or doubters out there, okay, I haven’t actually sat down to do the math, but whether or not the count is accurate (ignoring leap years and such), the point hits home. And hard.

For us, Saturdays are busy days. The “get-a-haircut/run-to-the-dry-cleaner” days. Soccer games. Paying bills.
The Hubs does a good job of making an outing out of running errands – it’s a chore to run errands with mom, of course (mine usually mean a trip to the grocery store, and what fun is that?), but with dad, it’s a treat. I’m grateful. Oh, alright – a tad jealous, perhaps, but I remember what a treat it was to run errands with my dad when I was a kid. It was a big deal.
And isn’t that what it is all about?
Spending time together, building memories – it doesn’t really matter what you do – just that you DO it together.
How did you spend your Saturday?
