I love my dad with all my heart and he loves me too.
I wanted to play softball on our school team, but I did not know a lot about softball. So my dad was 10 years old when he started and he played baseball for 10 years.
So him and I went in the backyard and we practiced catching, throwing and hitting.
Now I am one of the best hitters on the team.
My first dog died, but my dad got me a new dog and we named him Cooper. We take him to the dog park and he is a mess maker.
I thank God for my dad and what he has done for me for the past seven years!
I love my dad with all my heart.
