Happy Father’s Day

We had a nice relaxing weekend…I took the kids to two soccer games yesterday (and watched Colleen score the only goal in a 1-0 game)…camp fire last night (we roasted hot dogs and s’mores)…made a vat of sangria (yummy)…breakfast in bed today…disc golfing with the whole family…frozen custard…everything was perfect.

Megan helped me cook lunch a few days ago. We were getting lunch ready for Colleen and Christopher so we decided to take 3 pieces of pasta and make a bowl of yuck and tell them that’s what we were serving. Megan helped me pull bizarre items from the ‘fridge…when we were done we had 3 pieces of pasta covered in ketchup, mustard, chocolate sauce, wheat germ, lemon juice, and parmesan cheese. Of course Colleen and Christopher wouldn’t go near that and knew we were teasing them…but guess who then took the bowl back to the table…ate all of it…and asked for more!?!?!?!?

Beth heard her cell phone ringing from her cube last week while she was in her boss’s office but she said she didn’t need to get it. It stopped ringing but then rang again a minute later so she said with three kids in separate spots in day care that she should get it because it could be something urgent. So…she left her boss’s office, ran to her desk, answered the phone, and a girl screamed at her “quit f*ing texting me” and hung up. Kids these days 🙂

Here’s Christopher wrestling with his new Webkinz…

    Glad to hear your Father’s Day was perfect. Nice talking with you on the phone last night. Katherine came up Saturday with Sarah and we stopped by briefly to see Jackie and Daniel after church yesterday, so my Father’s Day was complete. Without kids Mother’s and Father’s Day wouldn’t be too special. Enjoy them – they grow up much too fast and someday may want their friends to think that they don’t have parents and then the teen years. Challenging, yes, but somehow both children and parents make it through the adolescent years. Enjoy your activities and being the chaufeur. All too soon they will be asking for the car keys. We are happy and proud of how our three children are raising their children and the great job they are doing in parenting their children. Keep up the great work. It’s not always easy, but always rewarding and essintial. They are the future.

    Looks like disk golf has not only water hazards but rock hazards as well. Nice picture of all three on top of the rock.

    Sounds like your little trick went astray, but turned out OK afterall. Maybe we’ll have to give it a try. Maybe we’ll try ours on ice cream.

    Good thing Beth didn’t take the call in her boss’s office with the speaker on. Maybe Beth shouldn’t be texting people on company time anyway (ha). Have to admit I’ve never texted, twittered or even taken a picture with my cell phone. Maybe I’m missing something, but on the other hand have think many people are missing out on real interaction with others by the amount of time they spend poking messages back and forth. I see the younger employess with their noses in their phones in the breakroom. I especially like the people with the bluetooth devices in their ears and I don’t know if they are talking to me or someone else. What would the world be without such marvelous technology? – probably not as good in some ways…

    Great job on the solo goal, Colleen. Hope you are having fun and making new friends on your soccer team.


    Dad and Grandpa T.
