Today I was visited at lunch by my family. Erin brought the kids by to hang out, run around the Rec Center to get out some energy, and to get something to eat. Even though my kiddos were probably more excited about getting to bowl and eat some ice cream, I was just thankful for the time spent with them. It’s great to in the middle of a long work day hear sweet little voices say “I love you.” So, yeah, there may not be much of a reason for this post, other than to once again say how greatful I am for my wonderful family!
Yesterday was a very busy day at the Rec Center with two leagues and outreaches going on and lots of prep work for the upcoming week. To be honest my kids looked like blurs as I rushed out the door to get started on everything Monday morning. At lunch time, though I was blessed when the two cutest kiddos ever came bursting through the Rec Center door. Maeven saw me, smiled really big and came running yelling, “that’s my daddy!” Judah came screaming with the delight and toddling along after her. I made hot dogs for them to enjoy along with their personal favorite Doritos. Maeven kept running after me everywhere saying, “I follow you daddy!” Both kids gave me big hugs and kisses before they had to head home with Momma for their afternoon naps. I even got some loud, “Bye Daddy!” from them. In the midst of chaos and busyness, I was once again reminded of how blessed I am with something as simple as lunch with the kids!
