Abigail started a cute little saying a few months back. On Saturday mornings now, she wakes up with a big grin on her face and announces that it's "Daddyday" (instead of "Saturday")! Well, today was the first day at the end of a long string of 25 fun and wonderful Daddydays. Now don't get me wrong...had I been given the choice of how to enter into such a time period, I probably would have chosen this:Josh would have achieved exceptional numbers at his office (which he did); he would have been commended for his hard work and rewarded with a month of PAID vacation.
But that didn't happen.But regardless of how or why we got on this path, we've had a really great time walking down it. We've gone for leisurely strolls, enjoyed picnics outside, played chase with the kids, watched movies, and laughed until we've cried (have you seen "Evan Almighty"?!?) This has been such a sweet time for our family! As Josh put it, this has been tons of fun...the pay just hasn't been that great! :-) Josh had a great first day at MedJet. He was warmly welcomed, and he learned more than he's probably ever taken in at once (or during a whole year if we're talking about our college accounting class!) And just three more weeks until he gets a paycheck! :-) As for me, I've had the opportunity to do photos of a few big kids, little kids, and little-kids-to-be lately. Here are some of my favorites:
