Father's Day

Today is Father's Day - and unfortunately we're without Ed.

Ed is such a wonderful daddy. For more reasons than I can list here - but here's what the kids had to say about why he's a great dad:

1. He loves us so much.
2. He plays with us.
3. He's nice.
4. He takes us to get ice cream.
5. He loves to go out for breakfast.
6. He's funny and silly.
7. He works really hard.
8. He loves Jesus!
9. He is mommy's best friend.
10. He's the best daddy.
I'll add that one of the things that makes him a great daddy is how much he loves me and works so hard to make sure we have a great marriage. He's an awesome role model for our kids. I thought of him this morning in church when we watched a video of a little boy saying that he was watching his daddy as his point of reference of what kind of person he wanted to be. Ed is always cognizant of the fact that little eyes are on him. Even when he fails. In those times, he's quick to apologize and ask their forgiveness. I so admire that in him!!

(Notice just how much Jace misses him!)
Happy Father's Day, babe! We love you and can't wait to see you!
