The day after (fathers day) and nature

Dad&John

Yes I know fathers day was yesterday (and it was a great weekend). The boys and I watched the Great Race car’s take off from here in Kirkwood, Missouri and then my daughter and her cousin made us all pancakes on Sunday.

Anyway, when I read this article I was reminded of my dad and our relationship. My dad loved to garden and be outdoors. I’m fortunate enough to say I’ve been to both coasts and lots of places in between like the Rockie Mountains and out cabin up north in Minnesota.

So to all the dads out there, here’s a great article by Richard Louv at the Children & Nature Network entitled “FATHER NATURE“. I lost my dad 21 years this past June 15th but I know he’d be proud of what the kids and I have done over the years.
