What is it About a Boy?

I know, I know, it took me longer than most. But today, when I look at a picture of Oly, it brings a tear to my eye. I’m not sure if it is the fact that I’m an older father or the fact that I’m a father at all. I think it is that my mind goes to a place and time that is far away. I wonder what Oly will think when he sees these pictures when he is old. What will he remember about his dad? I hope he remembers that his dad taught him to love his mom. I want him to remember holding my hand, floating our rivers and sailing big water. I want to teach him to dream and I want those dreams to come true. I’m sure it is what we all want for our kids. The details of your dreams for your kids would be different, but the idea is the same. Hell, I hope he has a tractor.
