I absolutely love this story! 

Even though most dads may have bad jokes and dance moves they are always our biggest fans. Check out how a group of dads are celebrating students first day of school. 

Broward Elementary School started their first day of class with a line of dads cheering, clapping, and giving students high-fives in the hallways.
