A Father's Role

On this paper you will find,
some tiny footprints that are one of a kind.
They 're here to remind you the role you play,
in the foundation that you lay.
God has given you this great treasure.
Teach her right and share her pleasure.
She learns from you in every way,
so be careful of the words you say.
Hold her tight and calm her fears.
When she cries wipe away her tears.
In all these things she feels your love,
and learns to trust the Lord above.

"Just You and Me" Goose and Little Goosey Craft

Just You and Me

Just You and Me - By Sam McBratney / Candlewick Press

Little Goosey and Gander Goose are on a walk down to the river when storm clouds roll in. Gander Goose tries to find a place to hide during the storm but every place seems to be taken by other animals. The other animals offer to share their warm places, but Little Goosey is scared of storms and doesn't want to share a place with anybody else when the thunder comes. They end of sharing a warm place with all the animals without knowing it, but Little Goosey gets to finish their walk down to the river with just Gander Goose.
