Honoring the Dads!

Three men in my life are not only great people, but amazing dads. I am blessed to share life with each of them. So today, on Father's Day, I want to take the time to honor my hubby (aka the father of my children), my father, and my father-in-law!

I could not ask for a better partner to parent with! Matt is truly dedicated to our family and our boys. He takes the time to teach them, play with them, and honestly invest into their lives daily. He is a wonderful example for our boys and I am so thankful for him!

Little Eli couldn't resist and blew out PaPa's birthday candles before he even had a chance. I just love the look on my daddy's face. I saw that look so many times as a child. He's not quick to smile, but Daddy always had a smile for me. I am blessed to have a dad who loves my mom and loves his kids. I never had to question his love for me or his interest in my life and for that I am so grateful!

And, last but not least, I'd like to honor Matt's dad. He had the tough job of raising two teenage boys and a young daughter following the unexpected loss of his wife and their mother. It is my understanding that he did so with grace and love. His children are wonderful people and I am fortunate to share life with him!
I pray that God continues to bless these guys and I am so thankful to him for their presence in my life!

Moving on up!

We've been busy celebrating the accomplishments of our boys recently. Jacob "graduated" from the fifth grade last week, Eli finished up his spring semester at The Little Gym, and Abel finally got his first tub bath (side story: Abel's belly button stump just didn't fall off on its own and had to be removed by the doctor when he was almost 8 weeks old). Here are some pictures from each event!

I am amazed at how much our boys are growing and changing...physically, emotionally, socially, cognitively, and spiritually! I am truly blessed to be parenting these gifts that God has entrusted me with. It is such a huge responsibility and I am honored to have this privilege.
