Daddy Day!

The littles made these lovely ties in Primary last week; and of course daddy has to wear all four of them to church.

Erik has an uncanny ability with languages. He speaks Finnish, German, passable Swedish and Spanish and phrases in a dozen languages. On a short trip to Italy, his Italian was good enough by the end of the week that fellow travelers thought he was fluent.

But rather than traveling the world, he stays home and corrects our grammar.

Erik is a born athlete, but spends most Saturdays working in the yard.

He’s a gifted speaker, but uses his abilities to give me a daily pep talk.

We think he could have been the next James Bond, but battles ZingoPop with Gabriel instead.

He may be invisible to the rest of the world, but to us he’s a SUPERHERO.

We’re treating him well today….

and every other day too.

Here’s our daddy book. Thanks to Elizabeth for the inspiration!
