Our Hero.

For a long time, it felt like this day would never get here.

However, here we are. Today Jared will graduate from the Police Academy. I am so proud of him. He has sacrificed so much these 5 1/2 months for our family. It has been so hard, but so worth it.

I couldn't find an appropriate card for Lincoln to give his Daddy, so I made him one. Here is the front. I found these awesome police scrapbooking stickers :)

And here is the inside...

On the left side is a poem that I found online. I thought it was so fitting! This is what it says...

My Daddy Is My Hero

This world has many heroes,
you'd know most of them by name.
It's apparent that they gave their best,
and they deserve their fame.


But among all of the heroes,
this world has ever had,
There's not one that I admire more,
than my precious Dad.


He's more than just a hero,
he never looks for praise.
He's heroic in his quiet strength,
and in his caring ways.

He may not be as famous,
as those you hear about or see.
But he's everything and so much more,
a hero ought to be.

He keeps his word, it's good as gold,
on this you can depend.
He's honest and he's loyal too,
I'm proud that he's my friend.

When I hear about a hero,
and the special things they've done,
It reminds me of my Daddy,
for he is the greatest one...

Seriously, how perfect is that? I don't think I could have said it better myself.

I cannot wait to watch my husband tonight as he walks across the stage to receive his badge. I am so proud of him, and all that he's accomplished. Lincoln is so lucky to have such a wonderful, caring father. I am so lucky to have such a wonderful husband, who puts his family first, above everything.

Lincoln and I are so blessed to have our very own hero. I promise to take lots of pictures of the ceremony to share with you all!
