94 Days To Disney
There are many days when I feel like a am a single mom. I wake up in bed with only my dog lying next to me. At dinner time, there is usually an empty chair. And except for a few quick exchanges of words, brief hugs and kisses, my husband is usually not around. He is always working.
It is not a choice that we both enjoy, yet it is one that we made together. Like so many other families that homeschool, dad is the one who is usually off to work in order to keep the household running financially. It is a constant struggle to make ends meet. When there is a chance to get overtime, he takes it. But that doesn't stop my husband from being the greatest dad I know.
He always makes time for his girls. Even if it is just a few minutes a day, he always takes the time to talk and play with them. He does his best to keep up with their activities and busy schedules. Even though he is rarely at a field trip, picnic or competition, he always gets a "video review" and stays up to date with our daily events.
I am truly blessed to have him as my husband, best friend, and soul mate. I can't imagine sharing my life with anyone else.
Happy Father's Day to the love of my life and to all other homeschool dads who make a similar sacrifice for their families.
