The boys went away to another fishing camp near the Catoctin Mountains last weekend. If you remember from last year, they go with a group called the Brotherhood of the Jungle Cock once a year. It’s a for-real thing, google it. They had so much fun together last year, so they had been counting down the days until this now-traditional event for quite some time. I absolutely love this for them. Aside from doing manly outdoor stuff, the bonding time that comes along with this weekend is truly special. DH has always been very intentional about pouring into the children and spending quality time with them when he’s home. He loves to play with them and almost always says yes to whatever adventures they ask him to accompany them on. He is such a good, encouraging, strong daddy. I’m so grateful for the message he sends the children that they are loved, worthy, and important. I know how significant that is, especially because my daddy gave me the same message.
