Father’s Day Update

As some of you might know, I share Sundays with my wife: one Sunday she takes the boys to church, the next Sunday they hang out with dad and we go ice skating. Well, my 2-year-old has been opting out of ice skating lately. He’s still attending nursery and I’m pretty sure he has a girlfriend there, so I can’t blame him and I don’t really mind (his brother, on the other hand, is happy to get out of going to church any day, which I don’t mind either).

But I’m happy to report that he joined me and his older brother this weekend ON HIS OWN ACCOUNT to the skating rink on Father’s Day and I couldn’t have asked for better. He’s quickly becoming a pretty good skater, actually.

We had a great time together, just me and the boys, and then an even better time when we joined mom for dinner and ice cream after church.

  • I’ve been reading your blog for a while, and have enjoyed it. Anyways, I’m writing because I just read your About page and saw you are Brazilian. What part of Brazil? I’m half Brazilian, my family’s from Rio Grande do Sul. My mother is living down there now… Anyways, my brother is actually marrying a Brazilian girl in the Porto Alegre Temple in November… which will be a shock to my family when I won’t be able to attend. Anyways, I thought I’d ask what part you were from. :)

    Happy Belated Father’s Day by the way. It sounds like you had fun!

    Hi Hypatia,

    I’m from a little town called Formiga, in the state of Minas Gerais, although my family moved all around the state while I was growing up.
    I left Brazil when I was 15-years-old (some 18 years ago :) ).

    I’ve never been to Rio Grande do Sul, but I’ve heard it’s one of the prettiest states in Brazil.

    You should at least take the opportunity to get down there for a visit and enjoy the country, despite your “unworthiness” to attend the wedding.
    I’m finally heading down with my wife and kids this August for a long due trip to see my family. You guys will hear all about it (I might even post some pictures), so keep checking back.

    Thanks for the best wishes. It really was a blast!
