Bronze Star Ceremony

A few days after Steve came home, he held a little ceremony for the boys, to award them for their bravery while he was deployed. He cooked this whole thing up on his own, making up the certificates, and ordering the certificate folders and bronze star pins while he was still in Iraq.

Anyone who knows Steve won't be surprised by any of this ~ he is completely and utterly dedicated to his role as father, and he doesn't take it lightly

He missed his boys so much while he was away, and didn't waste any time at all, jumping right back into family life. He's been taking Camden to school every morning, and picking him up in the afternoon. During the day, he pretty much does whatever Griffin wants, which of course, thrills Griffin to no end!

I love seeing my three boys together, and I'm so proud that I married a man who sets such a good example for our children.

Heather - I cannot believe this blog post. My goodness! I think that I'll be smiling all day about this. Boy, those kids have a great dad...a lucky thing for all of you!

That is adorable. The boys look so proud. Is there a certificate ceremony coming for you?

Heather said...

I don't think so but you won't hear me complaining...I've been spoiled to death by Steve since he's been back!

Aw, Heather, this brought tears to my eyes, what an adorable idea. How cute seeing all 3 of your boys in uniform at the ceremony. I can only imagine how thrilled the both are to have their Dad home safe and sound. So lovely to hear that you are being spoiled too :) You're all such wonderful role models for all-things family life.

Way to go, Heather -- make me all teary-eyed again! The boys will always remember the ceremony, I'm sure. Steve really made the boys feel like such an important part of the past year.
