Happy Father's Day
I am a loved father. My family regularly makes me feel special, but today, I am receiving special attention of course. The smell of a really great lunch is in the air, with the promise of key lime pie to follow. I have received a new pair of shoes for tennis, much needed and appreciated. Boyd (age 3 1/2) has received his first tennis racquet (sounds like a gift for him, but at this point, it's more of a gift to me to know that everyone in my family is excited about playing a sport I love). I have a new set of chess pieces on the way which is good for family fun, and we'll soon be playing with my new Jenga game. I'm also looking forward to a trip out to the neighborhood pool today. As often as we visit the pool, you would think it would feel very ordinary, but I still am not used to it. I love it. And I love how much the children love it; we are still several hours away from heading out the door, and several of my children are already in their suits!! Thank you to my family for loving me. I love you.
