dear dad, while you were away...
we missed you. all nine of us.
we got new kicks. and tried them out in the backyard.
note: sneakers look cool dirty.
we played nice.
except for the pecking. and the knocking over of block towers.
we made big messes.
"making a mess is lots of fun, but you must clean when you are done"
and we made a clubhouse.
and told mom it was kids only.
and then mom saw why.
we really were good kids.
while you were out.
welcome home dad. we missed you.
ps. mom missed you the most.
