Our Little Family honors Dan Hamill on Father's Day
This week on Our Little Family, we celebrated a special dad in our house, and that is Dan. Dan is an amazing dad, he has lots of patience with the kids, and well, who are we kidding, with me!
He is super easygoing, and he really makes family his No. 1 priority. Both Dan's and my dad passed away at an early age, so it had been a lot of years since Father's Day meant anything to us. We really enjoy celebrating Dan and making it such a special day for him.
This year, he got to throw out one of the first pitches at a local minor league baseball team. That was so cool to watch. It really is such an honor to be able to do that and to see Jack out on the field with him. I don't know if Jack realized what a cool thing that was, but when he is older, he will understand.
I was already nervous to drop Jack off with Uncle Jay to go go-carting, and we all go out to the van, all to find out that my car battery is dead. Why is my car battery dead, do you ask? It is because one of the kids left a door open! Great! Knowing that we were going to be late to meet Uncle Jay, I had to figure out what I was going to do. I called Dan to come and give me a charge, but just as I was doing that, my neighbor was coming home, and he had jumper cables, and together we were able to get my car started. Thank goodness for neighbors!
During this episode, I also learn how to alter clothes. I am going to be completely honest with you: I have no desire to learn how to hem. My mom has always wanted me to learn, then when all my kids were little, she really put the pressure on me. I just don't think I have the patience for it. I am very thankful that my mom does alter my kids' clothes, but for Dan and I, we have to pay someone to do it. And let me tell you it is not a cheap thing. We can buy a pair of pants, let's say for $40, and then it can be another $25 to have them altered. Those pants just cost us $65! What I should have done was open my own business and alter clothing for a living. It is just a shame that I don't have the patience to do it!
Thank you so much for watching, and for all of your support! Have a great week!
