Career Day 2016

I had a wonderful experience this week speaking to Kate's first grade class for career day.  It was certainly a challenge to bring the conversation of a legal career down to a first grade level, but I believe it went well.  We spoke a lot about conflict resolution and that the courts are a way for adults to resolve their differences peacefully.

Activities at Dad's Office

The girls have a much easier time entertaining themselves at the office these days.

Daddy Daughter Dance 2015

This year was a significant time for the annual Girl Scout "Daddy Daughter Dance," as my youngest Kate was finally able to attend.  



We had a great time and my firm was proud to be one of the sponsors this year.  





Kate and Grace get along very well and as is typical, little sister adores her older sibling and older sibling doesn't appreciate it.




I always like the annual picture and I typically ruin it by closing my eyes.  Kate had a solution for her shot.




Lots of great activities:

Father's Day Program

The end of April is obviously too early to celebrate Father's Day, but it is time for the Kindergarten Father's Day/Mother's Day Program.  One of my favorite songs was "Three Cheers for Dad on Father's Day."  It may have been just me, but I thought Kate had an extra special smile on her face when she was singing about her dad.  



A little preview of the entire show:

Very Special Christmas Card

I was delighted to receive a nice Christmas card from one of my "kids," James Michael. Usually I send all of his cards, so I was most impressed when I saw that he took the initiative to send me a card on his own.

Label Maker

We are constantly buying new tape for our label maker and it is primarily because of the little people who take it and use it when they come to the office.  Kate really likes the label maker and used it to do the following, which I found on my back: 



Her spelling was impressive for a 5 year old.  However, my good feeling soon evaporated when I found the next sticker (and she obviously had help from her older sister):


Surprise in a Legal Pad

I like having the girls play in the office.  Every once in a while I will be in a meeting and will find evidence of their presence.  It is always a nice surprise.
