Father’s Day is just around the corner. How do you celebrate the father in your house? One family we know spends the day weeding and NewfromNikkicleaning the yard of a grandfatherly man in the neighborhood whose family lives quite a distance away. Others give Dad a day of peace and quiet. My children are planning to make Dad some crafts they’ve found on the Scholastic website, take him hiking, and purchase an item from his wishlist. If you are thinking of buying something nice for Dad this year, remember to Shop with GHF Amazon and support GHF at the same time!
