homework break, a few late words to the fathers

i hate that i haven't had a free second since sunday to give a shout out to my amazing dad, father-in-law and husband in honor of fathers day. 
and simply typing down my thoughts on a blog seems extremely inadequate. 
but here it goes. 
i truly have the best dad on the planet. 
and no one can convince me otherwise. 
every single dance recital, soccer game, mock trial shin dig, everything; he's been there. 
he gives the BEST advice and i know that i can always come to him with anything. 
he always puts others before himself. 
i can't even tell you how many times my dad has stayed up with me until 2 or 3 in the morning to finish a school project. 
he's a worthy priesthood holder and his testimony of the gospel has always been evident through his actions. 
and i am so grateful or that. 
i love you, dad. and have no idea what i would do without you. 

about 6 months ago i acquired another father figure. 
i've said it a million times but i seriously lucked out on the in-law situation. 
kerry is an amazing father as well. 
and i am so grateful for that because ben would not be the man he is today if it weren't for his dad. 
plus he's hysterical. 
and he teaches at byui and sometimes takes me out to lunch on campus. 

although we don't have children yet, i constantly fear that our children will love ben more than me. 
he's that awesome.
i have no doubt ben will be the best dad. 
i can already see it in the way his nieces and nephews adore him. 
i think fatherhood will look great on him. 
i'm real excited.
