One nice tradition we have with the kids is our bedtime ritual. I'm sure I read it in a book somewhere, but we started it when Lucas was quite young. Each night we ask the boys what their favorite part of the day was and their least favorite part of the day. It's one of my favorite traditions we do with them. The majority of the time "the whole day" is the answer. But there are times we get the most interesting things from the boys. Sometimes it's about one of the kids at the school being mean. Once it was a kid calling Lucas a jerk. Sometimes it's about the art they are studying at school or a special craft they did. Most of the time it about playing with friends.
Tonight Lucas's favorite part was building a boat with his dad.
"My least favorite part was when I started building it and I was frustrated. Then dad turned it all around and made it fun. That was my favorite part of the day. " He's lucky to have such a great dad.
Nathan's was "the whole day".
