One of the things that I enjoy the most about the first day of school, other than the huge savings of not having to pay for summer camp anymore, is a tradition that Kaitlyn and I started back when she was in 1st grade. It is our annual “Ice Cream Night.”
I don’t know how many more years Kaitlyn will want to have ice cream with me on the first day of school, but I plan on enjoying each and every one until she tells me that she has had enough. Of course, if I get my way, this cool tradition (see what I did there?) will continue through high school and while she is in college, too. A dad can dream, I guess.
