Recently I wrote about the things I’ve learned from Vivi. Well, I’ve learned an awful lot from Addie as well. Addie marks the point in my life where I had to officially grow up. I couldn’t be that same college age kid who was floating through life just doing enough to get by. It’s also the point where I really saw the importance of family. I may not have understood how important it was to spend time with that family, but I saw what family really meant. From that day on I’ve learned quite a bit from this curly headed kid of mine.
Here are 10 things that I’ve learned from Addie:
Addie has taught me about the responsibility of being a father. When I met Casey my grades in college had slipped drastically and they continued to slip until I wondered if I wanted to pursue a different career path—one that didn’t involve college. A year after quitting school Addie was conceived and I swore I’d find a way to give her a good life. I re-enrolled in college with my GPA at the time of re-enrollment at a whopping 1.5. I maintained a 4.0 from that time on and raised my overall GPA to a 3.5 and that dedication to high grades was maintained through law school.
