Happy Father's Day

Happy father's day to all the fathers out there!

I have the best dad ever! He has sacrificed so much for our family. He always worked so hard. When I was in junior high, my dad decided to go back to graduate school to get his master's. We moved to Champaign, IL to the University of Illinois. My dad got two master's degrees in two years, a 4.0 GPA, with 5 kids and working 5 different jobs to get by! Can you believe it?! My dad is one of the smartest people I know. He always helped me with my homework and projects. When he was in graduate school, my parents would leave at 3 AM to do their early morning paper route. Then my dad would be gone the rest of the day working and going to school. I am so grateful for his determination. He has taught me to work hard for what I want and to persevere and finish things that I start. I love him with my whole heart. My heart aches for the things he has to endure now, but he does it with a good attitude and always puts on a happy face for us kids. I love you daddy!

I have been so blessed in my life. Not only do I have the best dad, I have a husband who is the greatest dad. I love watching him with Tay. She loves him so much!

Here are just some cute daddy/daughter pictures from when Tay was 3 weeks old.
