Happy Father's Day

We are a blessed family to have Andrew as our leader. His constant love for our sons is amazing. He is quick to suggest Daddy-time and surprises the boys with occasional trips to the donut shop on Saturday mornings. He patiently lets them help work in the yard and around the house but spends an equal amount of time wrestling with them and just letting them be boys. One of their favorite times of day is when Daddy gets home. Despite a busy career that often includes evenings, Andrew makes the most of the time he is able to spend with us. He often gets up with the boys and gives them breakfast so he can visit with them before heading off to work. We are so thankful for him!

Here is what the boys have to say about their Dad -

Patrick: I like to play with him and watch a movie with him. I like to play dump trucks with him. Eat pizza with him. Go outside. I love you.

Calvin: Daddy is at work. Watch tv with Daddy. Play with dump truck. I like to hug Daddy and play soccer ball. Bye-bye. Thank you, I love you, Daddy.

I knew when we married that he would be a great dad and I looked forward to God calling us to parenthood. Through everything, he has been a faithful and loving father and husband. He has insisted on being at doctor's appointments, surgeries, and other appointments and has been totally hands-on. I couldn't ask for a better partner on this journey we call parenthood and I wouldn't want to be on it with anyone else. Happy Father's Day (a day late! :))

Now, that is what a Dad is all about. Glad you all had a good day.
