For Daddy

For Daddy, who is away.
Just a few pictures of the kids.
He said 200 a day would be enough, thank you.
Well, here's seven.
And actually, one is just a rose.
But it reminds me of him because that's where we walked the day we said our vows,
and this whole crazy thing began.
And we planted those roses.

Anyway, this kid has learned to ride a bike in the last few days.
I'm so proud of him, considering the shaky start he's had over the last six months.

And this one, she's all about puddles. Stepping in them, drowning her face in them... with tears.
She's a mess, but she's ours and so gladly but with a bit of trepidation and a lot of stumbling humility we'll walk this puddled road with her.

The oldest was gladly participating, but somehow just thought this face was uber cool, and couldn't get past that idea. Sorry.

She almost made him crack a smile though.

Hope you are cracking one too.

We love and miss you Daddy!


  1. how bout one with mom in it too? These are great.

    Question - I recently started a blog and have been writing about setting. I was wondering if you would mind if I linked to a post you did about the grieving childhood - growing up in a foreign country. Only, I can't seem to find that post. Anyway, if you don't mind, would you email me at
