Anyone Can Be A Father


I'm sorry I've been away for so long. Last weekend was my girls' weekend away at the cottage. It was so great to get away, but unfortunately while we were gone my sister-in-law and I got a phone call that we were not expecting. My husband's uncle (and hers) passed away unexpectedly Saturday morning. We stayed until Saunday morning, but I was anxious to get home to see if there was anything I can do for the family. Their uncle was a life long dairy farmer, which will now be run by his only son, who is just 20. This is where Austin's dairy calves are that he will be taking to the fair, so we have been spending every evening on the farm doing chores. Today is Austin's last day of school, so he will be there every morning as well. Tomorrow is the funeral and is also my birthday. I'm sure I won't feel much like celebrating. So this is why I've been away from my computer for a while. This morning I was able to take a few minutes to complete Julee's Mojo Monday sketch. Although there was no stamping involved, it felt good to sit for a few minutes anyway and create. This card will be for my husband from the boys for Father's Day. The sentiment sticker says: Anyone can be a father; it takes someone special to be a dad. The paper I used is from Three Bugs In A Rug.
