My how time flies! It is June of 2017 and Father’s Day is tomorrow. We are planning a barbecue with family and friends and amazingly the weather is supposed to be hot and dry. Hard to imagine after the deluge of rain of yesterday. we have had some record rainfall here in Oregon this year but that’s what makes it so green and beautiful.

I am excited to see all of the kids tomorrow. It won’t be long until our daughter Erin will be headed down to California for a year long internship, one of the last steps before she earns her doctorate in psychology. We are so proud of her, but it will be hard to have her gone for so long. It will be a difficult separation for Erin and her husband as well since she is newly married. I forsee many quick trips back and forth in their future.

For now, all three girls live in Oregon, the twins, Erin and Julie and their husbands live about an hour away. Our youngest, Amy is only about twenty minutes away but when they are grown and have their own lives, we don’t see them enough so these family get togethers are very special times.

I am hoping for at least some hot weather. I already purchased beach chairs in anticipation of some sunny days at the coast. I think it will be a wonderful summer no matter what the weather and Father’s Day is just the beginning. Here’s wishing all you dads a wonderful celebration tomorrow. To my Daddy, I miss you. I love you. Happy Father’s Day!
