The word 'Father' for most of us conjures up many warm happy feelings and memories. Being a dad is a special honour bestowed on men who have bourne children. However it is also a term used to describe and identify other men who have so bravely and honorably stepped up to the role through a marriage, adoption or even foster care.
In our busy lifestyles today, often parents leave the role of raising or looking after children temporarily to the grandparents.
And so we also honour the Grandad who very often steps in to assist.. Whether it be to drop off and pick up children for preschool and school, take his grandchild out for a meal and a play or even rush to the shops to buy something the child may need and the parents can't afford.
Today, we celebrated all these amazing men in our children's lives here at Aurora ELC. We had both dads and granddads attend.
It was wonderful to watch the pride in children's eyes when their father or grandfather (or both) walked in to their room. It was heart warming watching those men who are often busy making a living, pull up a little chair, sit and do some craft with their children.
Thank you to all the dads and granddads who have taken the day/hours off their busy schedule to come along today. The best thing you can give a child is your time.
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY TO ALL DADS. Enjoy Sunday with your precious families.
