Fathers Day

I had a really nice day yesterday. We got up early and headed to church to hear what we thought was going to be a guest speaker, but we were confused about the schedule. Lily was very upset that we went to a different church and the speaker wasn't there. We are going to try again when he does come to town in July. It was a useful trip though because I got to meet some people who will be involved in our church plant.

Since I stayed and Amanda came home with the kids we took two cars. I was confused to get out to the parking lot and find the van rather than the Civic. When I got home I had a lovely surprise in that Amanda and the kids detailed my car. Lily did the Armor-All in the interior. Steering should be interesting for a few days, but her heart was in the right place. She also got all the brake dust off the hubcaps.

I grilled a rack of ribs, corn on the cob, chicken breasts for Amanda, and four skewers of veggies. We enjoyed the feast immensely, though Noah still isn't ready for messy food like corn or ribs. I took a nap and listened to the Indians game while the kids watched a video. After a light dinner I took the kids to Goodberry's where I enjoyed a mocha mountain sundae. That was a brownie with two scoops of jamocha custard, hot fudge, macadamia nuts, whipped cream, and a cherry. It was lovely.

Overall, it was a great day. It was a fantastic reminder of the blessings of having the kids. It may not always feel like a blessing, but it really is. Apparently the Psalmist knew what he was talking about.

Jason - let us know next time you come -- we teach the 4s Sunday School and we can have Noah in our class, and Ruby would love to have Lily go to class with her.
