We celebrated Dad's birthday last week when he came home from his camping trip to West Virginia. No, he's not really 31 again, but we didn't have any other candles in the house besides the ones we just recently used to celebrated R and M's birthdays. We had a few simple hand-made gifts (since we're trying to cut back on our expenses), but I think they still went over well. Here's an original artwork dedicated to Daddy because he does some of the best elephant sounds around!
We didn't quite make it all the way through our summer list of things to do, but we at least put a dent in things. Here's Riley and Daddy doing "hard work" on the back porch together! Too bad the rain decided to wash away 1/3 it the next day, but luckily the company gave us some more paint for free. Now if it'll just stop raining long enough to actually finishing the process.
We'll miss you Daddy as you head back to work and we know you'll miss our laid-back summer schedule. We'll be praying for you and know that you're going to inspire and motivate a whole different generation of kids to be the best that they can be! And when you get home each day, we'll be ready with hugs and kisses and we'll have all kinds of new games that you can play!
