Father’s Day

Busy weekend here, and Father’s Day is almost over. Had a good day with my husband and our daughter beginning with breakfast in bed for him and finishing tonight, just before her bedtime, with the two of them spending some quality time together with the X-Box, and I had a nice phone conversation with my dad earlier. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads I know who take the time to love, spend time with, teach, play with, enjoy, laugh with, and simply BE with their kids.

My dad’s the project kind of dad. Our times together when I was a kid involved things like building a boat and a cabin and taking photographs. Now they involve hearing about them more than doing them with him, but he’s still the project guy. For father’s day, here are a couple of old pictures of him from my childhood.

      Hi Teena. He hasn’t changed much since then, either. Our conversation yesterday involved his latest building project.

    Aw, such a nice post. I was fortunate, too, to have a good dad. And extra lucky to then marry a man who’s a nice husband/wonderful father. I hope all dads know the power they have–just by being decent, good guys, loving their families and spending time with–to influence the generations that come after them.
