We happened to be moving Claire in for college on Father’s Day (more on that big move later this week) which meant some great things:
1) We got to be out of the blasted heat in the desert.
2) We got to be with five of our seven kids for the big day (yes we count the in-laws for sure:)
We met up with the college kids for church, minus our newest college girl Claire (she went to attend her new ward).
And you know what’s pretty amazing?
We happened to run into some of our dearest friends from our days in China who happened to be visiting the same church at the same time.
Oh how we love those guys who took us under their wing in so many ways all those years ago.
We had brunch.
We took in the views:
Claire got a special Father’s blessing (she starts school on Tuesday):
And we got to meet up for dinner with these other good dads:
(My brother-in-law and my dear dad.)
Almost all the sisters together with this dad we adore:
(My other sister Charity was out of town, missed you Char!)
So many good stories about that guy coming up in our sisters podcast!
He is one in a million. And I love him so very much.
Lucy was delighted to rally the troops to play some Father’s Day games:
This picture shows the delight a little better:
So grateful for all the dads who make the world go around.
Especially this guy:
No one in the world I’d rather has as my partner.
