He's affectionate, strong, caring, protective, and loves the Lord.
When they see his truck or van pull up, they go crazy! They"ll run outside and start yelling, "Daddy! Daddy!" What a blessing!
Just like so many other fathers, he would do anything he possibly could for them, and he always puts their needs (even mine) before his. He would rather spend all his time with his family than do anything else.
Of course, he does do other things on his own..lol. For someone with a broken bone in his lower back, you would never know it! There is literally not one lazy bone in his body. He works hard all day (gets up at 3:45 to start at 5 and done by 1:30), but yet will still have the energy to exercise and still have quality time with the family. But, you know what he would say to all of that? He would say it was only through God that he could do this. It's not of his own strength, but the Lords. I love how he wants to be aligned with Gods word, and to be obedient to what His will is for our family.
This picture was from last fall at the end of the soccer season. He has coached my oldest sons team for 7 years now, and has coached each of our childrens teams at one time or another. For a few years he has always coached two teams at a time.
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY, HONEY! WE LOVE YOU!
