Dear Dad,

Mom said it was ok for us to do a blog post today for Father’s Day. We wanted to take the time to say thank you for everything you do for us. I (Henry) have a few more things to thank you for, but that’s only because I’ve been alive longer but Freddy says everything is pretty much mutual. So without further ado, here’s what we’re thankful for.

Thanks for teaching me the importance of my heritage, even if we only celebrate it once a year in March

There are plenty more things we are thankful for, but mom isn’t quick enough with the camera to capture all the stuff you do for us. We love you very much!
