Happy Father's Day, Dad!

This is an "Ode" to my Dad.
Who I think is pretty rad.
He likes to go on trips.
And always leaves big tips (If the service is good! Ha!)

He likes to learn new things,
Like scuba diving and gardening.
He always has a project to do
From building a wall to making a canoe (future project maybe??)

He's taken us to lots of places.
And paid for us to all have braces!
He's helped us get through jobs and school.
And taught us to swim in our backyard pool.

He's been there for days both good and bad.
Always a comforting word when we're sad.
Even though I was grounded through most of high school,
I learned lots of lessons and even more about rules!

A sense of humor that is one of a kind,
with lots of lame jokes that we never seem to mind :)
I know he loves me the very best,
All my other siblings are just "the rest" :) Hahahha!!!!! :D

He gives us repeated advice,
Even if once will suffice! :) hehe
He's taught us of hard work and respect
And our church to never neglect.

I love you so much, Dad, you rock!
(I think I may be getting writers block!)
I'm finally understanding your sacrifice
To help us all have a comfortable life.

I hope you have a wonderful Father's Day,
Even though I'm living a billion miles away.
I wish I could celebrate it with you,
But hopefully that cool gift I sent will do! :)
