my dad

my parents are on a mini-vacation in the Finger Lakes this week. i've been staying at their house to watch the kitties, water the plants, and empty the dehumidifier.

my dad was convinced i did NOT know how to empty it (which, in fact, i do...even though i made Josh do it every day i was at Rachel & Brian's!). so, being the awesome, informative, instructive, artistic and funny dad that he is, he drew me a little diagram.




i'm not sure how easy this is to read, but the top says, "EMPTYING DEHUMIDIFIER: Easy Instructions for Interior Designer's." the picture of the person is labeled as me, as well as the sink, water, collector, shoe, ponytail, and volleyball.

i have the exact sense of humor as my dad does, so of course this little diagram was very enjoyable to me. my dad was an art teacher for 7 years in England before marrying my mum and moving to America. since then he has been working as a salesman and doing side artistic work, mainly writing children's worship music and heading up the children's church ministry at Grace Church as "Captain Bill".

Heehee! That was cute! I do hope you didn't play soccer-volleyball while carrying a full collector of water, though.

I love Captain Bill! Seriously, your dad's children church changed my life. I'll never forget the first Sunday we went to Grace and my mom dropped me off. Your dad said, oh, I have a daughter in the 3rd grade too! Meet Amy… :)
