Hey Dad!

I just returned from surprising my son and meeting him at school for lunch. It was awesome. I wish you could have seen him when he walked out and there I was. What a blessing. Everything was so cool. I got to put faces with names of friends, see him interact with peers, watch how their daily routine plays out, meet school employees, hear stories of amazing feats in class, and much much more. I even watched him run outside and make his way ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE MONKEY BARS (which I had never seen him accomplish). It was all so wonderful.

But, I gotta' tell you, the greatest thing about it all...was Jude's face. When he saw me, that beautiful smile lit up the hall. He was beaming with joy and pride that I had come. Despite his best efforts, he COULD NOT contain it as we walked. It was priceless and it meant the world to me!

I know a day will come where that face will not be one of joy, but embarrasement, and I DREAD it. But for now, I will simply thank God and count my blessings. Go Oak Grove Rams!

You've got 3 very precious blessings and one major blessing in Jessie! I still love getting to have a special lunch with my parents!

Arrested Development is the best - it is a shame it only went three seasons....
