I always knew it was important for me to pour into my kids, but I never thought the father son ice-cream outings could eventually be so impactful.
This race towards fatherhood is not a 5k, half marathon, or even an ultra-marathon. This race towards fatherhood is a lifetime of ups and downs, hard work, and hopefully a great start to the legacy that God desires for us to leave on.
I am realizing that after seven years, I still don't know everything about my wife.
This boys trip started off with the typical morning drive up to the cabin, but it ended up being very different when one roadside sign led us through some of the windiest backroads that can make the most expiernced navigator a little queasy.
Just the other day I accomplished my goal of getting to a certain weight. Yep, it was just about two months after my original victory date, but hey... I stinkin accomplished that goal and I should have been overjoyed.
You know what makes life remarkable and memorable? Experiences. I stinkin love a great experience. It is a goal in my life to become halfway as good and intentional as my father- in-law.
Our little man just loves to help his mommy and daddy with whatever we are doing. Everything from cleaning and fixing up the house, to cooking meals and baking treats.
I know the legacy that I am creating with my wife and kids may be a little different than the one passed on from my parents, but this is the one I believe God is drawing me and my family to.
Over this past Christmas holiday, I had a few projects that were put on my honey-do-list. The projects were not anything too scary, unless you consider my background with wiring in light fixtures, and I had the best helper one could ask for... Sam.
One of the things I am most excited about with having a family, is starting our own traditions. Right now, we don't have that many, but I know as our kids get older and the years continue to move along, we will come up with some great ones.
