Our Daddy:)



I was standing in the kitchen yesterday packing a lunch to take to the pool when Dane taped me on the back to get my attention. When I turned around he said "Look, I'm Daddy. I have his glasses, his Bible and his golf ball." Brock quickly piped in and said, "No. If you want to be Daddy, you have to be reading your Bible."
I was so proud of my husband at that point. I get up at 5 to go to the gym and MANY mornings as I tiptoe down the stairs I'm greeted by the sight of my husband sitting in his chair in our living room, reading glasses on, reading his Bible. Usually around 6ish, our two oldest boys head down the stairs - also to be greeted by Daddy sitting in his chair, with his glasses on, reading his Bible. What an awesome example this is for our kids - especially our boys who too will probably grow up to marry and have families - and too have the incredible responsibility to be the spiritual leader of the home. I'm so thankful for my husbands heart, his desire to be in God's will, and to lead us accordingly. I LOVE you honey, and I am so proud and thankful for you.
