It all started in Sunday School when Dan said, "I'm going hiking after church."
Someone else said, "Why don't we all go?"
"All" did not go...but six of us showed up. It was quite an adventure--hiking uphill steadily for 3 miles to Henninger Flats. On the way back, it was much easier, but walking down hill for one hour can do interesting things to your leg muscles. We hiked a total of 6 miles.
It was fun to do something together outside of the usual setting of church. We all had a wonderful time and got to know each other better. Mozart couldn't go, because he has bad knees.
My 18-year-old graduated high school 24 hours ago! (Picture is coming) Grandma and Grandpa drove up for the occasion. Grandpa had a run in with a police officer. More on that later!
This morning our oldest worked on cleaning up an oil slick under his parked car. (With paint thinner and kitty litter) His car has been parked in our driveway for a long time, and we hadn't noticed that the oil overflowed the shallow pan until it started seeping out to where we could see it. After that, he went somewhere, and now it is late at night...I'm hoping he'll be here for Father's Day.
I have good news. I have been hired to work summer school-5th and 6th grade. I'm going to be working with a teacher that I've never met before. My caregiving job will continue--3 afternoons per week. I'm thankful to be employed!
May you all have a good day honoring the Fathers in your life!
