Make It a Mission

Yesterday, youngest daughter and I were picking up a few groceries while youngest son was at his drums lesson. We watched a young boy--I'd guess he was 7--shopping with his dad. They were doing their right before Christmas grocery shopping. They had a long list, and a cart with all sorts of things mounded up in it. It was a big chore, and the little boy was helping to retrieve this and that from the bottom shelves for his dad, and waiting patiently beside the cart while dad chatted with the various people he met.

While we were in produce, we happened to see him look up adoringly at his dad and say, "Dad, we always go on missions together, don't we?"

Cute kid. Wise dad.
