Harmonson Law Firm - June 2019

JUNE 2019





T his year, Father’s Day has a new meaning for me. In some ways, I’m doing it all over again with little Winn. Our son, who was born last year, has been an absolute blessing. I get to feel what it’s like to be a new father again. This time, I’ve thought about how I might do it differently.

In the past, we’ve taken a family trip up the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) in California. We started the trip in L.A. and made our way up the Pacific Coast Highway through Santa Barbara, Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Francisco. I think it would be great to extend the trip through Northern California and Oregon one day! My dad, brother, and I, along with my oldest son, did take a trip to Big Bend National Park in May. It was three generations of Harmonsons together in some of the most remarkable landscapes in West Texas. We had a lot of fun. And speaking of generations, I was mesmerized by watching the Masters Tournament in April when Tiger Woods won his first Masters since 2005 (his fifth Masters win overall). After the win, it was great to see Tiger embrace his two kids, who are about the same age as my two oldest. It was a touching moment and a return to form after years of scandal and uncertainty. The victory also reminded me of a moment in 1997 after Tiger won his first masters. I was in college at the time when I caught it on TV. Tiger’s dad, Earl, was there to embrace his son after the win. The 2019 win really brought that full circle: 22 years later and at the end of the day, it all comes back to family. That speaks to me as a dad and husband. It all comes back to family and our kids. We have a fun summer ahead of us this year, and I’m looking forward to every minute of it! I hope your summer is equally blessed!

As older parents, the time we have with our kids is all the more precious, and I want to savor all the time I can get with my older kids and Winn. Of course, there’s nothing like being together with all five of us as a strong family unit.

With summer here, Clayton and I always love to go to Chihuahuas games together. On the way home, we’ll blast ‘80s music, and it’s fun to see my son enjoy songs that have been around for decades. Who knew ‘80s music had such a timeless quality? It’s also fun to watch my daughter, Claire, come into her own. She’s 11, and she’ll be starting middle school in the fall. I love her independent spirit and am excited to watch her blossom. This summer, both Clayton and Claire will be heading off to summer camp for a couple of weeks, in the Texas Hill Country. Once summer camp has wrapped up, Sheri and I will pick them up and go on a family vacation. As a family, we like to switch it up. One vacation will take us to the beach, and the next will take us to a more urban destination. The variety keeps things interesting.
