Happy Fathers Day!

Almost ten years ago Larry became a father for the first time.

Here he is with an infant Jake.

Today Larry is an experienced dad of four.

So what did he get to do?

He got to buy paint all by himself without any little helpers in tow. Then he got to use the paint without any assistance from various small people.

Next he got to watch a little World Cup action and take a short nap with Nate.

There was also an unfortunate hour and half wait for a soccer coach that never showed, but I’ll write about that later. At least we were able to go out and have some tasty Mexican food for dinner before I spooned all the kids into bed.

Normally I handle just Max and Rebecca and Larry takes care of Jake and Nate. But today he got to skip the excitement of putting the boys to bed. Lord knows some nights it can be a challenge just to get them to brush their teeth, much less get into bed, but by 9:15 they were all tucked in.

So for all you dads out there, I hope y’all had a good father’s day.
