As a father of two sons, most of my life, as they were growing up, was spent going to football games, baseball games, BMX riding, musicals and plays, everything to do with what their activities were as kids. Free time was never really "free" but supporting and attending all of their events which I loved to do.
Now, they are 34 and 30 years of age, so perhaps those days are long gone??? No way. This past weekend on most of Saturday, I spent the time with Patrick watching him go-karting with his friends. On early Sunday morning, I rooted John on in a triathlon race. It is great to still have the chance to see them participate in stuff and be part of it.
As I say in the title, things aren't changing that much at all, which in this case is a good thing.
