I have to say I had a wonderful weekend and birthday. Had friends come down from Virginia Beach and take Lora and I to a concert, got to go golfing on Saturday AND Sunday (for free no less), got taken out to dinner for all-you-can-eat shrimp at Red Lobster, got a new bike (first time I’ve had my own bike since my last new bike got stolen in college!), had the church sing “Happy Birthday” to me on Sunday and surprise me with cake, and got great cards from my kids – like this one.
I wasn’t the only one who had a birthday though…Champ turned 7 on Thursday and had an army party. All that means is that we gave “violent” weapons to our children and other children who came over to play. And you know what? That makes me a good dad, not some silly, hand-wringing parent who thinks their kid will grow up to be a mass-murderer because they play with guns. Just look at Hannah and the dagger in her mouth – does she look like a killer to you?
