Dad Through the Eyes of His Children

We have another maintaince house project that is well overdue causing Espi to keep hard at work this past weekend. By the looks of things, the next weekend will be full for him (and myself as I can help), too. So our summertime begins. And isn't that a good part of what summer is for, house projects.

Seeing Espi work so hard and so well at what he does, simply put, fills me with gratitude for him. As we near Father's Day, I asked the children what they appreciate and notice about their father:
