The day after Jack's own Christmas program, the two of us went to see my YouthFriend Paul in his Kansas City Boys Choir concert at St. Theresa's Academy. During intermission, Jackson and I wandered up to the balcony to explore.
Afterward, I took Jack on a meandering drive through the Plaza lights for the first time. He was in awe. As we were headed south down Broadway and came to the first stoplight at Ward Parkway, I could audibly hear him gasp in the back seat at the thousands of colorful lights in front of us. When I asked how many he thought there were, he said "Three thousand google." Then we went to Winstead's for hamburgers and a shake. He fell asleep on the way home and I carried him up to bed.
