Lucy's Daddy

Monday-Friday (and sometimes on Saturday, too), our alarm clock starts blaring at 3:50 a.m. --- yep, you read that right --- 3:50 a.m.
That's the time that Scott gets up to head to work .... where he WORKS .... HARD .... until arriving home somewhere between 6:00 and 7:00 p.m.
Then, of course,  there's the work that comes with living in the country .... fence fixing, yard mowing, pasture spraying, wood chopping, weed pulling, and stall cleaning ....
That's the short list of things that seem to be necessary darn-near every day around here.
Scott does it ALL -- and then he often gives Lucy her bath, reads her stories, and prays with her before bedtime.
And he never complains about any of it, either.
Yes, I am a lucky gal.  I fully admit that.
And so is Lucy .... to have a superhero for a daddy!

2 days old :-)

I love love love these last three pictures .... not only because they are so cute, but because they bring back so many good memories of riding around on that very same tractor with MY dad when I was a little girl (and learning to drive it, too -- woohoo!  I thought that was the coolest thing ever!).
Happy Father's Day to the two BEST dads in my life!


  1. These are the CUTEST pics ever!! They look SO much alike! ;)

  2. Such sweet pictures! Happy fathers day to your husband!

  3. Such a sweet post and what a great dad. :)
    I am lucky to have a great hubs too who is absolutely in love with fatherhood too.

    God bless your family this Fathers Day. :)


  4. What a sweet, sweet post! I love the photos... they are just beautiful.

  5. Those photos are just so cute, thanks for sharing.

  6. I LOVE this post! What an awesome tribute to Scott!! The pictures of them on the tractor are so sweet! What an awesome dad he is!

  7. He sounds like a fabulous dad. I LOVE LOVE LOVE hearing about dads like this!

  8. Oh this was sooooo sweet!!! Lucy is such a beautiful little lady and she sounds lucky to have such a wonderful, dedicated father! It makes me so happy to hear about good men that take fatherhood seriously because there are just too many sweet little children that don't have that. I dream of one day being able to live the country life, beautiful!

  9. Awwwww! How perfectly sweet. Love all the daddy daughter pictures!

  10. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the pictures...they speak it all!
