Dad is a little beat up after his last gig....stuff needed to get done.  My boys stepped up to the plate and went at it for me.  They are patching holes in my highly abused bottom toolboxes to keep my stuff from getting soaked.

I am just as proud of them for this as I am them hitting a ball to the fence or scoring points on the court.

man i can only imagine my kids are still young but I know the days coming when they start doing stuff that blows my mind.  Im happy for you! I love the feelings my kids give me I can only imagine them doing something like that for me. Its cool seeing your kids follow your footsteps nothing like being a father

Nice!! Same feeling I get when I get home after killing myself all day and they've vacuumed the house, washed dishes or even started cooking dinner!!

Thanks. I'd rather read this than the usual bummer stories in the newspaper.
