This past Sunday was Father’s Day. You are out of the country visiting your other grandparents, so you didn’t get to spend the day with your Daddy. But there have been, and will be, lots of other days you will be together.
My Dad, your great grandpa Lowell, was a fun Dad, like yours. He taught us all about camping and backpacking.
He knew about how to build furniture and often smelled of lumber, linseed oil and campfire smoke.
He taught us all how to build things like bookcases.
And he was a big old goofball who was always making up games and silly songs.
Your Dad is a lot like my Dad. He is funny and smart and loves figuring things out. He also loves showing you how the world works. Maybe Dads learn how to be Dads by all the Dads in their life. And we sure got a good bunch of them!
