Abstract day (again)... this one will be tough though so it is a 100 pointer.
Yes that is Ryan. Yes those are his hands on the steering wheel. Yes, that is him driving. *** The end of an era and the start of a new one. The one ending was that of Ryan being my "little boy"... Today I rode as passenger while he had his first real go at driving. That really throws it into perspective that he is well on his way to being a young man. As for driving, he did really well (guess all those Midtown Madness miles paid off). In all seriousness I'm really proud of him. He is growing up to be a really fine young man.
Today was the big wrapping party for the families being helped this year by contributions from everyone at work. It is so easy to forget what Christmas is all about these days and seeing all the presents that these families will get is a good reminder of what Christmas really means. Thanks to the hard-working elves that handled the logistics of this impressive undertaking and everyone that donated, these families will have a real Christmas!
