I will always love how committed we are to our traditions. To remembering the years that came before.
Going to Sonic for cheese sticks.
And it’s so hard to believe that this is the last year we will celebrate these things alone. Next year, Helen will be in a car seat in the back, going along with us. And over the years we’ll teach her why traditions are important to our family.
What a special and powerful responsibility parents have.
