Yesterday, Caleb & my beloved wife Gina were talking about how well they knew me. As a part of this discussion, Caleb listed things he knew about me:
- uses excuses to get his way
- a little weird
- likes to play with me
- lets me do stuff
- gives advice
- does stuff with me
Meagan, not to be outdone, decided to make her own list of what she knows about Daddy:
- loves me
- he’s my Daddy
- plays with me
- plays house
- he’s handsome
- wants to play Settlers of Catan
- he loves Mama
There you have it — the most complete description of me by two wonderful people who claim to know me pretty well. Maybe I could include this information on my résumé; I’m sure I wouldn’t have a problem finding a job if the prospective employer knew all that about me.
Caleb & I finished building our Whizbang Garden Cart and used it for the first time this morning. I decided to paint it with some left over exterior paint we had laying around. I had been, and may still be, hoping to paint some designs on it like an old hippie VW bus-van. The construction was fairly easy to follow, although at first I was following blindly until I figured out what was going on. It is very solidly constructed, well balanced, and I love the wheels.
Unfortunately, I still live in the Valley of the Sun and my backyard is as agrarian of a setting as I can find at this point. In just a few short weeks, our Whizbang Garden Cart will be in the most agrarian of agrarian settings, when it makes it to our farm in Nebraska! I can’t wait — we are less than three weeks away!
