« Part 15: Project of a Lifetime. Part 16 of dust stuff series Part 17: Back in the shop »

Well it’s been awhile my sawdust friends. I’ve been spending all my time on another of those life long projects and I thought I would let you guys and gals see the progress.

I would like to introduce Gabriel Phoenix. He was born on Aug. 10th. He is number 5 for us and has been a complete joy. When I am able to get back into the shop, I will be sure to share my woodworking with you, but until then, I will enjoy being a father to my kids.

Well wait until the joy cools off and the diaper duty gets too hard, and you’ll be back in the shop.

Joey, what a nice picture. I have been blessed with my first grandchildren the past two years. They are a joy, and it has given me a chance to reprise the time in my life when I enjoyed being a parent of small children…an unexpected benefit.

Well done! As the father of one, I can’t see (from a logistics standpoint alone) how anyone can do this more than once. Five? Wow.

Handsome little guy. Babies are so great when they’re quiet!

Congrats to you and yours! And a picture like the one you posted makes all the trials and tribulations of life worthwhile! Beautiful child!

And FIVE? You guys haven’t figured out what’s causing that yet, have you? :-)

Thank you. We just believe in large families. Some folks need a big TV and a fancy car, I just need a bunch of kids running around laughing and playing. Much better investment.
