Well, June is here, which means the kids’ sports schedule is in full swing. My son’s lacrosse season is winding down, while both baseball and softball leagues are reaching their midpoint. It’s great to see all the training and hard work our son and daughter have been putting into these sports pay off. It also makes for a hectic schedule for my wife and me. Our weekends are basically booked straight through with games and tournaments, including Father’s Day. But I wouldn’t have it any other way; there’s nothing I want more as a dad than to be there for my kids. “I’ve saved each and every card from both my son and daughter over the years.” MY KIND OF FATHER’S DAY CARDS, SPORTS, AND STEAK They do spoil me a bit on that particular Sunday, though. My favorite part is that the kids each give me a card every year. My son is in elementary school, so he uses his enhanced access to arts-and-craft supplies to make some really creative homemade notes for the occasion. I’ve saved each and every card from both my son and daughter over the years. They’re real treasures. After cheering on the kids at their games, we go have a nice dinner. We sit out on the porch and grill most Sundays, and Father’s Day isn’t any different. I love to relax at home and cook up a nice steak.

out of a perfectly good piece of meat. I gradually won her over, so I no longer have to grill a perfectly good steak down to a hockey puck. I got into grilling thanks to my grandfather. He was a butcher by trade and taught me how to find and prepare quality meat. I could tell a quality strip from a gristly mess right there in the supermarket. Of course, his lessons have largely been made irrelevant now. With the rise of organic and grass-fed products, there are different indicators to look for than in his day. Still, I enjoy carrying on the family tradition in my own small way, grilling quality cuts for the family. And that’s our Father’s Day in a nutshell. With a day filled with cards, sports, and steak, I honestly couldn’t ask for a better way to spend time with the family. I’m sure many of our readers have their own Father’s Day traditions. Swing by the clinic or send us an email; we’d love to hear from you! Maybe we could even swap grilling advice and recipes.
