Dads

Father's Day Entry...
I am late adding in my Father's Day entry, but I wanted to make sure that I put this in, because it's so important. I am thankful for my dad...simply that. My dad is kind, tender-hearted, sensitive, helpful, humorous, and so very generous. He is always willing to help in any way he can. He will help a complete stranger. He has had some heart problems this year, and it does not make sense for a heart that is so full of helpfulness and kindness can be defective. I love you, Dad...I want to have a heart like you when I grow up...

And my husband...he's only been a dad for five years, but he is a good one. He is so strong, and able to be consistently firm with Kate, and that is an important characteristic for a Dad. He is also growing in the Lord, so much that it amazes me sometimes...it makes me think of the verse...He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it! You are a wonderful work in progress Babe, and I love you so very much!

Monday's entry (also a day late!)...
We had a great day today. We went to Osage Hills State Park, and it was really nice! We hiked a trail and I got some great pictures of Katie and Kris, I think they will be beautiful. Katie enjoys being outdoors...she notices the tiniest little creatures! Kris caught a tiny little frog and she was so excited about seeing it that it made both Kris and the frog "jumpy"! Then she noticed a cardinal so high up in the trees...she had a lot of fun! We took a picnic lunch, but ended up eating at a bbq joint (that was yummmm and cheap!) It was nice having a cooler full of ice cold water and Pepsi for the day, and it saved money on stopping for cold drinks. We are really trying to save money. We finished off the day at Mom and Dad's for a swim. We played water volleyball, and Mom and I "almost" won against the boys. It was a good day. We are blessed to have family that are close enough to visit whenever we want.
