Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers out there! My husband will be enjoying his Father’s Day because our 4 year old grandson arrived last night and he hadn’t seen him in person for 20 months.
We’ll be taking him to Legoland today and have a day at Disneyland planned later in the week. Enjoying time with loved ones is what life is all about.
On another note, my stepson is back in the states and recovering well from his war injury. It looks like he won’t need surgery after all. We’re also grateful to have another Father’s Day with my father-in-law.
