The Best Daddy.....
I am so blessed today to have two examples in my life as incredible father's. Mike is such an awesome daddy to our girls. He is so selfless and has so much fun with them. He has an abundance of energy that amazes me as he plays with the girls and gives me so many breaks. He loves to teach them about Jesus and read to them every night. He is always creative in what we do as a family and our family album is already full of so many amazing experiences. We just flew home today from Kansas as we were at a wedding and visited Lawrence. The picture shows a great picture of how Mike is selfless. Many dad's would be overwhelmed by traveling with two toddlers, but Mike just goes with the flow and helps me so much. He pushes our double stroller like a pro and it has two car seats attached to it! We often times have a pack n play, suitcases, etc... He serves me so well and our girls are so blessed! I tell him often that how he helps with the kids is amazing and I don't really care if he helps me clean etc.... Almost, every Friday or Saturday morning he gives me the morning off and he takes the girls to do something fun. I love the way Ellie and Anna light up when he comes to the door at the end of the day. I am so proud of him as a daddy and as a husband. He challenges me and is the rock behind our family! I love you, Mike!
I also want to tell my dad how thankful I am for him as a father. My dad and I have always been very close. We are a lot alike and enjoy so many of the same things. I know that my dad prays for us daily and that is what is most important to me. He has always sacrificially loved us and given us so much. He was always there for me as a child/young adult. He has seen me shoot thousands of baskets and run hundreds of miles. Ellie and Anna are so blessed to have a papa like you!
