Always finds time to be a dad!

My husband of 10 years deserves to win this contest because he is the best dad to our 2 beautiful girls! We where only 18 when we got married. “Too young”,everyone had told us. We learned to be parents together, never giving up, always compromising. It’s never been easy but we both wanted a great life for our kids. Both of us grew up in broken homes. We knew that’s not what we wanted for our family. He enlisted in the...

The Fish Caller

My dad loved to take my brother and I fishing. Well, maybe my dad loved to fish and felt like he should take his kids fishing with him. My dad always caught more fish than my brother and I, always. My dad was just a better fisherman than us boys. Plus, while he was fishing I was trying to get my lure out of the tree I just casted into. My dad said I just liked fishing for squirrels. My brother didn’t like fishing much. He liked guns. So he...

He rowed to the sound and found 2 men clinging to their capsized boat. My dad could not pull them into the boat so he had the older man...

Together on a Tractor

Some of my favorite times spent with my dad took place on our family farm in NW Indiana. My dad taught me to shoot, drive, build, plant, and combine while we made memories together – Father & Son. I’m thankful for those adventures and am grateful my children are now having a chance to begin the process alongside their Grandpa as often as we can.

Speaking of Boats

Almost every summer of my life I have spent at our camp on Black Lake. One of my fondest memories was the time (well, not the only time) that Dad took me and my 2 sisters fishing in Uncle Emmett’s bay in a little row boat. We had our trusty poles and drop lines (as least I don’t remember any rods and reels) and of course a bucket and worms. In those days a camera wouldn’t have been safe in the boat, but I don’t need one...
