I didn't have time to write an entirely new song for Father's Day. I hope the fathers won't be too disappointed. I come up with something to sing with one of my old, favorite primary songs, though. The primary and youth will be singing "Daddy's Homecoming", (the one that starts out "I'm so glad when daddy comes home"). The primary will be singing the first, original verse. The youth choir will be singing a verse that I found on the primusic yahoo group. I tweaked, the verse a bit. I wish we had recorded it, but we didn't have time.

I'm so glad when my dad comes home,
He shoots some hoops with me.
He leads the family in scriptures,
prayer and F-H-E.

We go for walks and have long talks
He taught me how to add.
When I grow up, I want to be.
Just like Dad!

The kids loved it, and the the primary really enjoyed singing with the older kids.
