Father's Day!

We had a great weekend. Saturday, Chris had to go help with a youth fundraiser so that meant we could go pick up his Fathers Day gift. Thursday we took him to get his hair cut as part of his gift. Anna has been on this kick that he NEEDED a hair cut. So that was her special gift to him.
She made this box for him. It is her hand prints and a finger print for the caterpillar. The poem says:

Children have a certain way
of growing bigger every day,
But these little hands
and this special smile
will stay in our
hearts a long, long while!

It is a keepsake box. He can use it for special papers she gives him or pictures or whatever he wants!

This is what we had to pick up for him. He needed a Bible and since he is going on the youth mission trip soon I thought it would be a great gift.

What Makes a Dad
God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it ... Dad

That is the poem inside his card. Anna did the illustrations and added stickers for some extra effect. I think she is going to be an artist, what do you think?
