In sync and in spirit, the Sims family give ‘super’ a new meaning
How Dan knew Traci was the one: “It was a day at the Butler Street YMCA (where they worked together that summer). She had just gotten her hair done, her nails were on-fleek, I mean she was on-point! And she was outside with kids hooping it up like Charles Barkley!
The day that Dan proposed, Traci thought he was out of town. “I had a friend take her Applebee’s. I’d arranged for the whole restaurant to know what was going on. I wrote [a poem and] had someone read it over the loud speaker."
When Dan was healed, the family went Disney World. Traci expresses, “We stayed for a month! We stayed with my aunt and she did all the cooking. It was amazing!”
The dynamic duo: “You can pick a mate or God gives you one. I actually feel like God gave me one.”
Dr. Daddy: Traci says, Dan is an amazing father. He’s such a busy person. He’s been my son’s baseball coach since Jordan was 3. Even while earning his doctorate he still coached the team and ran a school.
The Super Fam: “I love being with my family. When I was getting my masters degree, I would be teary sometimes because I had leave the three of them,” admits the dedicated mom and wife.
Cool principal, cool school: “Every time I have a birthday, my students and faculty members where Superman t-shirts. Every time somebody asks me about it, I give them the story, my testimony.”
Jordan, the compassionate and loving son, is an athlete. His has father describes his schedule —which includes baseball, golf, basketball, football—as “robust”. Since Jordan was 3, Dan has coached his baseball team.
Every member of the Sims family owns a set of golf clubs. Golf is one of the may ways, they bond with one another. Traci says, “It’s just a glee for all of us to spend tome together."
Kamille’s dance studio hosted an 80’ Father- Daughter Dance, “Dan was the DJ and his Kamille’s date. Kamille started to cry when she was slow dancing with her dad. It was a really special moment.”
Kamile, the ballerina of the family, will be studying with the Dance Theater of Harlem’s Summer Intensive Program in 2016.
Watch Jordan and Kamille’s dad Nae-Nae. Ok! Traci says, Dan is an amazing father. I would love for him to be my dad.
The Sims would make Mrs. Obama proud. Traci:“We try to be healthy and active as a family. We like to get out and move!”
The Sims are in sync. The Sims attend Simpson Street Church of Christ where they were married. Every Sunday someone calls out a color and the family wears that color to church.
