Father's Day

So Father's Day this year was actually Joe's birthday, too. This is the project the kids and I put together for him. The hand-prints are made out of clay - baked to harden, and then the kids painted them - well, except for Joshua :o)

I was looking for some kind of meaningful quote or verse or something to go along with the hand prints in the shadow box, but I couldn't find anything. So, I asked the Joey, Gracie, and Madie each seperately why they like to hold Daddy's hand, and, what it came down to is that holding Daddy's hand makes them feel safe. So this is the poem that I came up with and put in the shadow box. The kids loved it and Joey read it to Joe before we gave him the gift.

Daddy Hold My Hand!

Reaching up into your hand,
I hold your fingers tight.
My little hand fits right in yours,
And all the world seems right.

I can face the mighty foe!
I’m bravest in the land!
No fear can fill my little heart,
When Daddy holds my hand!
