Father's Day

Steph and Josh made a wonderful breakfast for me. Bacon, toast and pancakes shaped to look like D A D. Exactly what I wanted and the preparation and presentation were perfect.

Stephanie performed in her recital at Northwood School. She played The Entertainer. All of the kids were awesome. Young boys and girls waiting their turn in plastic chairs, some whose feet didn't reach the floor. Feet swinging until they were called forward. Shy and soft spoken as they introduced themselves and their music. Stiff and awkward while they played, the discomfort of playing in front of a group evident but not overwhelming. A hurried bow as the proud parents applauded. A smile of relief and happiness and dash back to their seats. Unfazed by the interruption, swinging feet picking up where they had left off.
