Happy Father’s Day

kid o info soapbox derbyTime to celebrate all the dads out there.

Today I’m honoring my husband, my father, my father-in-law, and my mom’s father, “Grampy”–still alive at age 92. And my dad’s father, “Baba”–although he passed away, I have many fond memories of his visits to this country when I was a child.

I admire these men for their strength, integrity, and strong moral character. They all have a great sense of humor, know how to have fun and are great storytellers (important in our house). My boys and I are fortunate to be surrounded by such great male role models.

This picture shows the boys having a fun time with their dad–they were all inspired to make their own Soapbox Derby vehicle after watching the Soapbox Derby Races last year here in Providence.
