A Hero Among Us

This is an evening ritual...


Preston gets excited for Will to come home from work and watches out the window for him. He will repeatedly say "Papa? Papa?"


Will is such a hero to little Preston. Papa can do anything, fix anything, and not to mention he can make pretty cool make-shift car ramps.

Preston loves his Dad so much...



And all of the special moments they have together playing and horsing around...

They are so close that they even match sometimes.


(The funny thing about the above photo, is I had put Preston in that outfit that day not knowing that it was what Will wore to work as well. When he got home, I just had to laugh and take a picture.)

Will is also a hero to me. We've all been sick with the stomach flu for the past 24 hours, and even though Will has been sick himself, he has been taking care of both Preston and I. He rubbed my back and held my hair last night while I, uh, you know....And he took care of Preston while he lost his cookies as well. He has been strong and taking care of things even though he has been feeling really terrible as well.

Seriously...how did we get so lucky to have this guy in our lives?

We sure love you Will!

I loved the shot of Preston looking for will. Kids learn what they see. In Prestons case what he sees is OK.

I also had to laugh about Will being able to fix anything. I am sure he gets that from his Grandpa Harmon!

Super Will! Yes he's my hero too. Who else can watch Gwenevere and Preston for 2 and a half hours and make it look so easy. Gwenevere adores Will too.

Dan always says that Will's my favorite. I'll say he's one of the top 10 in my life!!!! Will, I'm so glad you take such good care of your wife and family!! You make us all proud.
