Father's Day!

We sure are lucky to have Riley in our life! There is nobody else I would rather be quarantined, locked inside Japan with. It honestly wasn't much of a Father's Day this year-- I attempted to make salmon and ended up throwing it away before it made it to the plates haha! Hopefully next year the food will be better, but the artwork was on point. I love you Riley!

We also had a special "zoom" online video call with Riley's family to celebrate Father's Day. All the siblings wrote poems about their dad and shared them together during the call. I was BLOWN away at the creativity and thoughtful words of each poem. Here is Riley's attached below. 
We love our Dads!

Dear dad

Today is your day they say 
Tribute and gifts we pay.

For you my dad, you’ve always lead 
Now apart, memories reign instead.

As I look back at the times we had l, I ponder 
Fully realizing the sacrifice, you grew stronger. 

How you did it all with such smile and fun 
Giving of your time til the sun was done.

Battling bills and mounting stress 
The ultimate test, you sought to pass.

The man of the house you lead with mom 
Working hard for a fresh new dawn. 

Being a father now of my own
Learning from you I set the tone. 

Much harder than I thought be
Lucky now to have you I see. 

The ultimate example you give
A Christ-like life you strive to live. 

So on this day we say thank you 
For who you are, much respect is due.

You’ve been our dad a family of eight 
All your love we now contemplate

All these things I have to say
But most important here to stay 

More happy days you will accrue
But today and everyday we love you. 

Happy Fathers Day.
