Father's Day

Father's Day falls right in the middle of baseball season.  
Would they have it any other way?  
Not at my house.   
My husband and middle son are spending their fourth day at a tournament in Omaha, NE.
  One that just happens to coincide with the College World Series on Father's Day. 
 You know a father planned it...Hopefully they will return safely later today with a trophy in hand.
I could not come up with a better gift than that.  

Photo taken 3 years ago...they have grown so much...
Happy Father's Day to a dad that never misses a practice, performance, game or concert.
Shows up to lead scout troops and camp outs.
He can be found most days in the back yard pitching balls or in the
 front yard shooting hoops with a kid in tow.  
This is a man who knows nothing more than the schedule of his kids and keeps none of his own.
He is up before us and home when dinner is ready.
He can cook, do laundry,  and works tirelessly for his family.
This is a dad who plays video games with his kids till all hours of the night and laughs himself silly.
Thank you for going above and beyond...

This is a dad that taught me all that I know.
He knows no gender.
I can mow, cut a tree down, scale a fish, bait my line and cook rue for gumbo.
This is dad who said read a book to find the answer and still gives me books to find them...
He taught me to be smart, quiet, garden, work with my hands and told me I can and do whatever I want.
He still does....thanks Dad
Happy Father's Day

Oh, what a sweet post. I miss my dad. That man loved us so much. My grandad was unbelievable too. I hope my three boys will be wonderful dads. So far one is a father, and he is awesome. We should all remember lessons from our father. Actually, I think the show "Life With Father" is supposed to be on today. That would be fun to watch!!

Lovely Fathers Day post!
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hadn't found any buttons in quite a while, either, but I just got back from an estate sale where I even found a few MORE. That's three times so I hope that doesn't mean it's over!!

Your hubby and Dad sound like the best kind of fathers. Hope they are enjoying the College World Series up in Omaha!! (My eldest is there through July, until her volunteer service year starts.)
