Unlike last year and the year before that, Nate was HOME this year for Father's Day... until tomorrow when he leaves for another Europe trek with students. We'll see what next year brings! Anyway, it was nice to have him home.
I believe that any man can be a father, but it takes a special man to be a daddy. And Lucas has a daddy whom he adores. I think Nate will be the first to tell you that hearing Lucas call him "daaaddeee" in his sweet little voice melts his heart. Lucas asks daddy to give him a bath every night, Lucas asks daddy to build duplo towers with him, Lucas loves to go on walks to the park with daddy and Lucas loves to wrestle and tumble with his daddy on the floor. He is a patient, wonderful father who adores his son too. I'm not sure on whom this travel separation will be harder, Lucas or Daddy.
Happy Father's Day, Daddy! Lucas and I love you very much!
