Teacher Workday

Being in "big" school now, Anna June gets the joys of a few days off every now and then. Birmingham City Schools held a teacher workday this Friday, and Ben was gracious enough to spend one of his days off taking care of AJ and, hopefully, having some fun.

The first item on their agenda was to try out our new toaster with some Toaster Strudel.

Then, they were off to the Birmingham Zoo.

They sent me these two photos to show me what I was missing:

Wearing those Tennies alot lately, it looks like! I would have cherished a Daddy / daughter day when I was little! which set me to thinking, that I DID have a lot of those days! Fishing, to a baseball game, on moonlighting jobs w./ him.......pretty good for a one of nine child!!) They are important days in a girls development to be sure! Don't ever forget how important you are, Daddy!!!!

I am so happy that she likes her tennis shoes now. I don't even want to jinx it by telling her that I am proud of her for growing into them. I don't know if it was the song they sang including the lyrics, "Have you seen my new sneakers?" or if it was just that she finally gave them a try and - hey - they ARE better for running and more comfortable. But either way, I'm happy.

And yes, a Daddy-Daughter day is a really cool thing. The bank give use-it-or-lose-it vacation time each year, while UAB lets you accumulate days. So, being that we're at the end of the year, Daddy had a little more incentive than Mommy to take a random day off. They had a good day.
