Yes Im still here. We have just been so busy lately.
Sister Baby got to come stay with us a few days and she helped do the chores with us. She loves our goats.
I have been worried about Dakota working this week out in the heat. Two of his co workers had been taken to the ER a few days earlier. One was on the verge of heat stroke the other was severely dehydrated. I pray for him daily. He is still my baby.
I think I’ve joined the land of the old. No offense. For a long time I’ve been waking up at the first sign of daylight. For someone who likes their sleep this is not good.
The whole weekend at our house was all about spoiling daddy for Fathers Day. He so rightly deserves it after all weve been through and all we are still going through.
He got the books Happy Happy Happy by Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty and The Duck Commander Family by Willie and Korie Robertson of Duck Dynasty. NOpe, the man is not a reader, neither is Dakota but they said if they were to ever read a book it would be these. SO guess what? Dakota has finished one of the books in two days. I am about to faint and fall out. The kid hates to read. Dallas and I are reading the other one. Daddy said that was ok that we read them now, when he has to leave to go out of town again that will be good hotel reading when he is bored and has no one there. Here is Dakota reading.
After they left to go home we went to our local state park for a family get together for Fathers Day. My sister in law put this all together. She got hotel rooms for every one that wanted to stay. We had the best time. She did not have to do this but she did. We needed a break really. It was very thoughtful of her. They have not been fishing in a long time so David and Dakota went fishing with them. Jerry my brother in law caught his first bass. That night him and Dakota stayed up all night helping them catch more. Seelena, Davids niece was bound and determined she was going to catch some fish. They did, they caught 7 catfish and we grilled them the next day. They did not come in from fishing that morning til 3:30 am. Not this girl, me and Dallas called it a night at midnight. But they had a blast. Seelena had an encounter with a raccoon. It came her way and she was very still and it walked right over her toes. Lol
Everyone got to do exactly what they wanted to do. Fish, swim and eat…..lol
I posted some pics of my favorite guys for Fathers Day
This is me and my daddy on a very special day. To my daddy thomas Flanagin. Thank you for taking in a saucy 14 yr old know it all who didn’t want to listen to any of your fatherly advice. I’m sorry I didn’t know what a father was and I did not trust you. Now I know different. You were only doing what you do best and that was being a father. I love you happy fathers day.
This is when I gave my beloved our first born son and made him a dad. I can not think of a better person to have given two boys to. Your unselfishness dedication devotion and loyalty amazes me. You truly are a God send and I thank God everyday for you. You are a wonderful father. Thank you for all you do for us and our families.
This is when I made him a dad a second time and gave him our second son Im sorry this pic is upside down..my photo editing would not let me rotate it…crazy thing.
To my heavenly father. Thank you for your love provision safety forgiveness mercy and grace. Thank you for blessing me far more than I deserve in life. I love you. Happy fathers day.
Rest assured that if your kids are in david Dixon’s care they will be taken care of and their needs met first before their wants. Just do me a favor when they get older make sure they thank him for it.
