Happy Father's Day

To our son...
Who is a wonderful father.
With patience and understanding and love for his little beans.

To my husband...
Who taught the boys how to bate a hook and catch a fish ...
  Who helped with paper routes and coached them in Little League.
Taught them how to sleep in a camper truck and stop asking "When are we going to get there?"
Who showed them how to negotiate life's ups and downs.
And try to land on your feet...most of the time.

And to my dad...
Who taught me how to make a bed, wash a car, dress well, turn out the lights when you leave a room and take care of your family.
I love you and miss you dad...

Here's to my brother in laws, John and Jeff, for all you do and more. There should be a medal of honor for going above and beyond fatherhood... and choosing to adopt children who need a family.  You are heroes in my eyes.

Here's to all Dads, everywhere. It's a hard job and you deserve a special day.
