Father's Day and Moving Day

WHEW! Very, very tiring weekend. The crew got all of Lynne's things moved to our house yesterday, finishing up around noon. So glad they did since it was so hot about them carrying furniture in the heat and up and down stairs.


Today the three of us wanted to get the apartment cleaned so that hopefully she can get her deposit back. Lynne' thought it would be fun to have a Father's Day picnic at the apartment, complete with fried chicken...and she was right! Too hot outside for this sort of thing, but a spontaneous picnic in an empty apartment was fun. :)

We had a great day today and obviously I was glad. Since my dad is gone I will admit to kind of dreading this day, but it ended up being busy and fun and for that I am thankful. Honestly - I love being with my family.

"Just as a father has compassionon his children, so the Lord has compassionon those who fear Him." - Psalm 103:13 (NIV)

How fun!
I'm glad you were able to enjoy the day. I can't even think about what it'll be like when my dad isn't here.
I know it's a difficult day for those who have lost their dads.
Isn't it fun helping your kids move?!!
We've done it so many times. Each time our kids manage to get apartments on the second and third floors. :)
We'll get to help our son move again soon. The owner is selling his property. Then our daughter and sil are building and will need help moving in Oct. or so.
Fun, fun! I'm glad we're able to help.
How are your tomatoes? We've had other vegies, but I can't wait for tomatoes to be ready!
Have a good week!
Love,
Valerie
