If the shirt I’m wearing had buttons, they’d all have popped!

My two kids, Joey and Cara had a half day at school today.  A friend’s sister drove them home, so early this afternoon I started a text conversation with Joey:

Me: Home?

Joey: Now we r.

Me: Good! You got a ride.

Joey: Yes!

Me: I guess Cara’s happy.

Joey: Yes she is.  Guess what place I got in science fair.

Me: 1st

At this point, I wasn’t getting an answer, so I texted again:

Me: ???

The reason I wasn’t getting an answer is that Joey was sending me this photo:

If this golf shirt that I’m wearing had buttons on it, they’d all have popped by now.  I am so proud of Joey and Cara, they are both great kids.  God has truly blessed me.

    Congratulations, sounds like you have two really great kids. Mine are now grown and in their late 20’s, a son with Down Syndrome and a daughter who is a disabled war vet. Both of them make me proud, nothing like fatherhood to bring out the best in some.
