Happy Father's Day

Wishing all the fathers and future fathers a wonderful wonderful day! Today we listened to Amanda speak in church and she did a fabulous job. After that we went to the Smith's house and ate and played bingo. We had some cousins over and it was a party! We had a fun day, but we are exhausted.

Although he is not yet a father, I wanted to to remember Nate on this special day. I cannot wait for Nathan to be a father, he will be so so great. Here are a few reasons why:

1. Nate loves kids. Being one of the oldest in his family, he has been around a ton of kids. I love to watch him interact and play with our nephew Keith. He is so tender and cute and has the biggest smile when he plays with Keith. Keith likes Nate better than he likes me despite all my bribery. I guess Benji and Amanda raised Keith too well, he doesn't go for my bribes.
2. Nate has a great temperament. I've never heard him yell or scream. He is as mellow as they come. No situation riles Nate.
3. Nate is so smart. He is the only one of 70+ cousins to have a bachelor's degree. Need I say more? On top of being able to learn, Nate is really good at teaching.
4. Nate is handsome. He will have cute kids.
5. Nate is spiritual. I enjoy reading scriptures and praying with Nathan each day.
6. Nate serves. Whether he is serving me, his family, or our neighbors, Nathan is a great example of service.
7. Nate is a hard worker. He went to school full-time all while he worked full-time. Nathan is a great provider and he works hard both inside our home and outside.
8. Nate is loving.

For these reasons and many more I believe Nathan will make a wonderful father. I cannot wait for that day to come.

Happy Father's Day!
