The other day, one of my students showed up to her lesson with a gift for The Maestro. She said she couldn't help herself when she saw this t-shirt for sale and had to purchase it for him.
Naturally, I forced him to put it on for our Father's Day Sunday Photo. Force might be the wrong word, since he happily did it and even recommended the Charlie's Angels pose (end of post).
I'm so thankful that my children have The Maestro for a father. He is a wonderful father to girls. He has no problem letting them put make-up on him and do his hair (want to see what happens when he lets them do a Daddy makeover? Click here: Why Decorate Easter Eggs When You Can Decorate Daddy?). But he also loves teaching them how to play sports and the girls are often found in the backyard with him playing soccer or throwing a Frisbee.
He teaches them what it means to be kind to others, and he shows them how by his own example. He leads our home in righteousness with a love of the Lord and a desire to be obedient. He has taught the girls to love prayer and to turn to their Father in Heaven for help often.
The girls will talk to him about just about anything, and he will always listen. Unless maybe it's the middle of a BYU football game or a Wagner opera. He is the best dad we could ask for (and the best husband, but that's for another day).
June is The Maestro's favorite month, because it contains Father's Day, his birthday, and our anniversary. And he totally deserves a month of celebration, because he loves to make such a huge deal out of everyone else's special days.
We sent him on a scavenger hunt (written by Chloe) all over the house today to find his Father's day gifts. He found lots of fun golf paraphernalia since golf season has begun and he has already been out on the course 2 or 3 times.
Since it's Father's Day, I can't neglect my own Dad in all the celebration. I'm thankful to have a father who taught me all about hard work and dedication, helping others, serving in the Church, and loving BYU Football. He is an amazing Grandpa to my girls and they love him to pieces, often commenting how much they love that he calls them all "doll." Love you, Dad!
Happy Father's Day and Happy Sunday. And whatever you do, don't try to scare Joel. It simply won't work.
