Happy Father's Day!!

Happy Father's Day to a truly wonderful father. Steve is one of those rare men that stays home and raises the baby, teaches her new things, takes her to all of her appointments, prepares her documents for school, cooks, cleans, does the grocery shopping, builds things, fixes things...whew! The list could go on and on. I heard on the radio this morning that in a poll of fathers, 30% of them would rather be "Mr. Mom" if their wives had jobs that could support the family. 30%! Wow, I imagine times have really changed. I do wonder what that number would have been 10, 20, 30 years ago. And I do wonder if they really know and appreciate all the hard work that the job entails (I suspect not!). I really have an incredible appreciation and respect for what he does, and the payoff is so obvious to anyone who meets Samantha. She absolutely thrives.

We are very, very fortunate, indeed. Happy Father's Day--we love you!

Happy Fathers' Day! Just wanted to say "hi". We're a local family (also in DSANV), 2 daughters 2.5 and 2 mos, who are also looking forward to spending sunny days on Lake Anna!
