If my dad was a superhero he would be....

"He would be Mr. Incredible"

....that's what the Z-man said about his daddy, Shrek.

"Because he's strong, and he's awesome, and he teaches me how to fish, and he takes me camping...oh, and because he can win everything and he's the boss."

I chatted with Z-man in the car and asked him what he wanted to get his daddy for Father's Day and he told me he wanted to take him to the movies to see Transformers 2. I told him that would be awesome....but we'd have to wait until July to he thought some more. And said, "I want to make him another book!" Ah-ha! That's my boy!!!

So we decided to make him another Cherish Bound book. He's done one for his daddy for the past 3 years....the A-Z's of Camping, Just Me and My Dad and The Top 10 Reasons I Love My Dad. Amazing gifts, dad cried every time...

This time I asked him to finish the sentence:

If my dad was a superhero he would be...

And that's the title of his next Father's Day book. He's drawn some pictures and had me be the scribe for him as we typed his story into the Cherish Bound Publishing Center. He's so excited to come home and work on it after school...I can't wait to show you pictures of it!!

So do your kids need a creative and unique Father's Day gift??

This book is a good idea.

Thanks for visiting Family Fountain and leaving a comment about why your read and write. I like this statement you made about why you write, "Capturing all my families stories and personal history... i want to make sure we leave a legacy behind."

When my kids were little (they are now 23, 20, 16) I started writing letters to them explaining why their mom and I made decisions that we did (moving from Florida to Wyoming), the emotions we experienced, etc. They were too young to understand then, but I want them to understand for the benefit of their own lives, later. I also wrote about the values and ethics Cheryl and I hold on marriage, family, finances, debt, Christ, service, etc. I wrote with the idea that, if something ever happened to Cheryl and me, and we couldn't explain all this to the kids, they'd have a book of letters from us to explain all that was valuable and meaningful in our lives. In that way, through writing, we could pass on our legacy.

That is what you are doing, and it is a great idea. Thanks again for visiting. WB
