Dad and Son

Dirk has always been into reading to the kids . . . since Ox was just a baby. I am so grateful for him and what an involved dad he is!

After three years of good times and noodle salad, Dirk graduated, with honors, from law school. Three cheers for Dirk! The event was made even more memorable by the presence of Dirk's entire immediate family and our beloved cousin Nancy. That's because he is so sweet and lovable. He worked his tail off and he deserved every bit of pomp and circumstance he got that day, and the really nice present we are still working on. I enjoyed the speakers at the ceremony and the fact that the kids behaved impeccably and the walk through the law school afterward. I enjoyed the celebratory barbeque of the best food ever grilled where we invited everyone we knew to cram themselves into our home. I enjoyed the visits with family and Scrabble that evening, except the part where Dirk tricked me into playing a word that he proceeded to challenge and destroyed my score. I guess that's what they teach them at fancy schools . . . But I digress. It was one of the best days ever, and we won't forget it. And now you won't either, right?
