Happy Father's Day

Last week, we went to an event launching a new local nonprofit.  Charles has been working with them and many people I know professionally were there.  In the midst of some small talk, I overheard the Business Dean at a local community college ask Charles, "what do you do?"  His answer was awesome, because he drew himself up tall and said, "I am a proud homeschooling dad."  That's right!

Our tribute to this awesome dad included breakfast in bed.  He had asked for real bacon, then declined to buy it because he didn't want to spend that much money on himself, so I had to sneak out early in the morning and get some for him.  It is hidden in the picture, but he got a full spread: pancakes, grits, fruit, juice, coffee, eggs, coffee cake, and bacon.  And cards from such great girls. 

Later, we visited my parents and got to honor my Dad, too.  He inspires me through his example of loving and calm parenting skills and I am grateful for him every day.
