Skate-walking

Hi Princess!

I remember when your mommy was a little girl, and she got roller skates for Christmas. She loved them! She put them on, went outside and tried to skate. Only thing was, she couldn’t skate. She was too little.

But she basically walked with the skates on, and she had a great time. She was so happy, and she looked so cute! That was one of those precious memories I’ll always hold dear.

Any way, I just wanted to share that wonderful memory.

Love ya!

Bicycle no more

Hi, baby girl!

Look, I’m sorry, but I had to sell my bike. I know a long time ago we talked about riding bikes together. Well, someone threw a rock through the windshield of my car. Since I’m poor, I had to sell my bike to defray the cost of replacing my windshield.

Here’s one for ya, look up the word “defray”!

All my love,

Blue moon

Hi, Princess!

Guess what, today there was a blue moon! I know that sounds kinda awesome, but all it really means is that there were two full moons in one month.

See, the moon goes all the way around the earth every twenty eight days. A full moon is when the moon is positioned so we see the sun’s light reflected off the moon so it looks like a big ball, and that happens once every twenty eight days.

Now, usually a full moon happens only once a month, since most months have either thirty or thirty one days. But this month, there was a full moon on July 2, an another one today, July 31. I guess it is still kinda cool!

Well

Hi, Princess!

Leslie, you know how I usually start the conversations on my posts to you with “Well,”? It’s because I remember how, whenever I would ask you a question, you would always start your answer with “Well,”.

Anyway, that’s why I do it. To kind of keep my thoughts of you as close as I can!

Love you!

Well, a lot of stuff is going on lately. Sunday was your Aunt Karen’s birthday! Also, you know I love my Red Sox, right? Last night Brock Holt hit for the cycle. That means in one game he hit a single, a double, a triple, and a home run. The last time a Red Sox player did that was in 1996!

And don’t forget, this Sunday is Father’s Day! Your mom always used to give me a Father’s Day present, and I always used to love it, no matter what she got me. See, it was never about the gift, what mattered was that she was letting me know how much she loved me. Let your daddy know you love him!

Anyway, I gotta go. I love you mostest of all!

Love you,
