Hanging Out

A couple of weeks ago Alex and I pretty much just hung out together at the lake. We sketched and hiked and cooked and ate and watched a movie or 2. I even helped him create his own sketching blog. There was this part of me that kept telling me that there are so many other things I should be doing but I kept pushing that voice away. I am aware that soon Alex will have his own circle of friends that he will want to be with and his own "to do" list that he'll want to attend to. That he wants to hang out with Papa right now and do these things is pretty cool and worth paying attention to.

I couldn't agree more and how wonderful that you're the kind of Dad to make time for that to happen...Wonderful work....all round!

You have it right. I read something the other day about how time passes when you have kids...it said something like, the "days are long and the years are short" ...it's true---enjoy.
(I would credit the author if I knew who it was)

Your son will forever remember this day spent with his Papa, that is so much more important than the little petty things in life.
