It Takes a Special Man to be a DADDY

Father's Day 2017 is almost upon us,...

And no,...that's not I.I. in the picture,...
that pix is over 25 years old.
Our oldest son: Teddy sure is an image of Isaac,
or rather I.I. looks a lot like Teddy in this precious pix,
Teddy helping his Daddy get ready for work. 


We're so blessed to have such a selfless man to care for us,
hard working, 
dedicated,
and such a tender heart for his three boys,
although his first lesson in fatherhood was a lesson of loss,
our first baby
miscarried.
Not a happy ending for a young couple,
but we were bless with two more children,
two and half years apart,...


Teddy
and
Michael

Our irrepressible pair,
such joys,
and such adventures they had with their very, very, VERY busy Daddy.
No matter how many late shifts,
or double shifts,
this Daddy was a hero to always take time for his little guys:
Trebuchet building,
sub-zero camping,
road trips,
basketball, basketball, and more basketball,
and of course video games.
Mario Brothers,
Oh yeah, Daddy did all the levels. 




Little did we ever dream,...and another son was in our future. 
Teddy was a sophomore at the University,
and Michael jusssssst graduated from High School,
when a solo irrepressible arrived to rock our world!!

Oh yeah,...this is our Isaac,
safe in Daddy's hands,...


Perhaps my husband needed the training ground of 21 years worth of fatherhood,
to so tenderly care for our very special little guy. 
No one wants their child to have challenges,
but no matter what Isaac's challenges are,
Daddy's a hero to be there to help,
to guide,
to support,
whatever is needed,...

Puzzle partner



Bird wrangler,...


Strong arms,
and reassuring presence,...


Strong hand to hold,
should the trail be rocky,...


Partner in adventures,...


Encourager Extraordinaire:
"You've got this I.I.,..."


Gentle patience,....


More patience,...coaching a whirlwind,...


Best seat in the house is whatever seat is next to Daddy!


Even more patience,...as Isaac tries to instruct
and Daddy turns it into a lesson how to work together,


Who is sillier?
The child in the cellphone suit,
or the Daddy who secured the cellphone suit for his little guy?


You know a Daddy's tight with his little guy if he offers cellphone privileges,...



Daddy and Isaac
make an irrepressible pair themselves!

Our friends all have grandchildren,
but I.I. is like a do-it-yourself grandchild you NEVER have to give back. 


Children are a blessing from the LORD,
and we are so blessed to have our three sons,
and for them to have such 
kind,
caring,
gentle,
witty,
dedicated,
loving,
man
for a DADDY




So its only been since last year that Isaac's been interested in holidays,
Mother's Day was very special
and we're hoping that Isaac's developing development
will make 2017 the best Father's Day ever!!!


Anyone one can be a father,
but it takes a very special person to be a DADDY!!!


Happy Father's Day


Until I post again,...may God bless and keep you!
