I don't know if I have told you this, but this man is my life. He loves his girls and they adore him.
They took us to the park today with a delicious picnic they put together to celebrate Fathers Day. Mr. serious pants doesn't like to have his picture taken though.
It is sometimes all he can do to hold it together and not smile, but with his iron will he forces his face into submission. No smile here.
But wait...what is this? Is the iron will crumbling? Can he hold it together or will his girls coax a little smile from their stoic and serious dad?
Ahh yes. There is the sweet smile we all love. The iron will crumbles:>) We love you to the moon and back sweetheart! My own father was not around, I had a stepdad who was, at best, abusive, so the love that my sweet man shows his girls (and me), is priceless. It means the world to me and to them. I sometimes think that God gave me Earl to show me what real love looks like. It looks like this.
I thank God for this man every. single. day.

Oh happy day! Last day of school , which means this Lunch Lady gets a couple months off. Not great to go without the paycheck, but since I have to, I am going to admit that I am so glad to have the summer off. I will still be taking college courses (guess who made the Deans List last semester?) but having the morning to get things done will be such a blessing.

I hear talk of summer, and beaches, and hot sticky days filled with picnics and pools.
But I haven't finished with Spring. The soft green after the bitter cold. The tender buds unfolding. The joy of the first flower.
Summer is fine, but I think I will linger in spring just a few more weeks. Can it really be June already?
