Where I’m meant to be

Friday, March 25th, 2011

I attended my daughter Grace’s Lapathon to raise money for school laptops. I had such an unexpectedly good time. At one point when the kids started to get hot from all the running, I picked up a squirter and started squirting the kids(to their delight, well mostly) I said to another dad, “I’m not sure whether I was meant to be squirting those kids, but it sure was fun.This afternoon I also happened to have an appointment at one of those in-between places, but it just didn’t quite work out.But I’m pretty sure now, I was exactly where I was meant to be.

My wonderful wife coordinating things.

Daniela taught her first classes as a K-6 teacher, just the day before we had lunch.
