I think that I am one of the luckiest kids in the whole world.
I come from a pretty big family. There are nine of us kids in all. It would have been really easy to have gotten lost in the shuffle of kids, work, responsibilities, and more, but I never did.
My father has always been there for me.
I'm sure he could have soared through the ranks of the military. Instead, he put me and my brothers and sisters above everything else. He was at every soccer game, every swim meet, every school activity I ever had.
He's my hero.
As he gets older and I realize how fragile he really is, it makes me appreciate him even more. This father's day I want to celebrate the hero in my life with a Super Hero themed father's day. Stay close the next few days for some fun superhero party ideas.
In the meantime, enjoy this wonderful video with other kids describing why their dad's our heroes too.
Who's your hero and why?
