The Rorabeck Group ready for departure home

Father’s day is a special time for dad’s and kids. This weekend we saw several groups of fathers and sons. Today on Father’s Day, the Rorabeck group finished a week at Metionga Lake. What an experience for these kids to spend quality time with their dads. This group started as a “guys” trip but evolved into a group of 20 fathers and sons with one father/daughter in the mix. (When we took the photo 4 had already left Ignace for the ride back to Wisc.) Ignace Outposts is one of the few fly in outpost operators which can accommodate groups as large as twenty in an outpost setting. Both kids and adults relayed stories of big fish, laughter and great fun at the lake. Memories that will last a life time were made this weekend. We will have more pictures and notes about this trip later.

If you want to do something special for your dad or for your kids – spend time with them. It is the one commodity that is free but is worth more than gold. The true measure of the value of time is how you spend it.
There will come a day when you will not wish that you had spent more time in the office or making another buck but instead you will value the time you spent with your dad or kids.

I can’t count the number of times guys have told me, “Oh I can’t go then, it’s father’s day” Why not bring the kids and make it father’s week?

Karen is heading to Vancouver this week to see our new grandson. A week in June away from Ignace is not something we can do easy – we must make hay when the sun shines – but there things more important than work.

Happy Father’s Day Dad; I know you are reading this.
