On June 18th, 2010, in my third grade class, I wrote
On June 20th, 2010, in the family room, I spoke:

D ude, Happy Father’s Day!
On October 2nd, 2018, I write
With a few chuckles and smile shining bright:
T errific father who has taught me to persist
I ncredible baseball catcher who quickly became a field hockey passing partner
M ath genius who stays up until 12am tutoring me in calculus
D ifferent in a way that I now see in myself
A mazing parallel parker who must be ashamed of my subpar parking skills
D ude, thanks for being my best friend!
TIMe sure has passed, but my nine-year-olD ADmiration will always last.
