Happy Fathers Day to all the amazing Dads out there!
I feel so blessed and thankful to have mine for the first 24 years of my life. Of course I wish I had had him much longer, and I still miss him everyday ..but am so, so thankful for the memories I have of him, and for the things he taught me. So much time has passed and still a lump comes to my throat just trying to put into words what kind of man my dad was, and how much he meant to me.
So I'm just going to say...
I was just SO lucky to be blessed with two amazing , loving and giving parents! Happy Fathers Day Dad... I love you!
Today we met the kids out at the cabin. It's the first time I have been out there to see the flooding. The waters have gone down so much since the first photos the guys came home and showed me.. yet it still seem so surreal. The photo below is of the county road leading to the lane to our cabin. Obviously we couldn't get through this way.. so we had to go around .. up the hill and come back down on the other side.
It's hard to believe that the photo below is of the corn field across from our cabin.
This is the back yard. No volleyball today.
That blue building out there, belongs to our neighbors.
I have to say, I have been so proud of our kids and how they have stepped up and helped so much with things at the cabin. Having a place like this is alot of fun, but can be alot of work! Mowing, painting, just general upkeep, year after year gets old. ( and we're getting older) lol It's like everything you do at home , x's 2. Today , the boys and Kate where out there with a rented carpet cleaner, planning to take care of what little water did get in the little cabin. They have put in alot of time and effort working on things out there this past year especially. Kate works right along with them. The girl is not afraid to get in there and help.
The photo below is hysterical to me. She was walking through the water and muck to the point her flip fops wouldn't stay on. When she showed me what she did to keep them on ... I laughed and said.... " Oh, there is NO doubt in my mind at all , that you are defiantly the girl for Jarad!". Any of my family or friends who know Jarad are laughing right now , because they KNOW Jarad and how he is. Total Gadget head, .. a dig in and do it sorta guy. He's always been like MacGyver... even when he very very young. So the fact that Kate had used electrical tape to keep her flip flops on...........tells it all!~ Love it! WTG Kate!
"Redneck flip flops for flood cleanup" lol Classic! Gotta love it! lol
I can't top that one..so I think I'll close for now. lol
