Yesterday we celebrate Hope's fourth birthday at home. She had already had her party, so this was just the five of us at home. Mike cooked her some hot dogs on the grill and we had some cake for dessert. I cannot believe she is four!
This weekend is also Father's Day weekend. I am a blessed to not only have a great father in my life, but to parenting these kids with Mike.
Mike loves these kids and takes his role of father very seriously. He preaches constantly to the kids to "do the right thing always" and I am so thankful that he takes his biblical role of training up a child seriously. We are very blessed that Mike Robinson is the head of this household.
This picture also makes me want to cry. This is my Dad with David in the hospital during an inpatient stay for chemo. Dad was my right hand man while we were in Cville. If Mike could not be with me, then my Dad would come down to be with me and David. He and Dave have a special little bond. Happy Father's Day Dad!
This is also Mike's first year without his own father on Father's Day. That has been a very hard situation for lots of reasons and today I am sure he is thinking of his own Dad.
We have a busy week ahead with Governor's School for Kyle, All star practices starting up, therapy appointments for David, and gymnastics for Hope. Happy Father's Day!
*** Since I posted this I have had several emails/texts/messages asking where we stayed. Click here www.governorscrossing.net for info about the hotel. We stayed in a one bedroom executive suite which was super nice. We actually cooked in the kitchen one night and it was great to have laundry in our condo and a full kitchen. For the price, it was a great place to stay plus tons stuff at the hotel like an outdoor and indoor waterpark, free putt putt (9 hole tiny course), pirate ship playground, shuffleboard, and an arcade. It was really a great value for the price. ****
