Family Day- Father's Day

The best part about special days like Father's Day is that we get to spend more time together as a family. When we got up this morning, Nate had a special present for his Dad- a card and a laminated poem with his footprints that he made at school.

The poem read:

"Please walk slower, Daddy,"
said Nathaniel so small.
"I'm walking in your footsteps
and I don't want to fall."

He said, I've been following
You Dad, isn't that cool,
I'm an atom from your own soul,
I wanna be like you
And eat all my food and grow
as tall as you are
We like dreaming things,
and holding Mama's hand
Yeah, we're just alike,
Hey, ain't we Dad

Dad, I wanna do everything you do-
So, I've been following you.
Love, Nathaniel
