Wasn't he the cutest baby ever?
After six years of infertility I couldn't believe that I finally had a baby.
Our first teenager
Should we run? Should we hide?
I hope not because we've been looking forward to this.
Loves soccer, running, hunting, and climbing
Drives tractor, helps on the farm, and
is old enough to babysit.
Responsible, sincere, helpful
Very good at math
World's best big brother
Legos, traps, inventions, woodworking, forts, tea plantations, unlimited plans
Desire to please God
It's hard work being the oldest. It means you're the guinea pig in the family. We've (I've) been the hardest on you. The most expectations, the most math curricula (Five or six - sorry, bud!), the most frustrations...let's face it, you take the brunt of your parents' inexperience. We could not love you more or be more proud of the young man you've become. God has worked in your life (inspite of your crazy parents). Please never forget that you are not limited by what you can do. God will enable you to accomplish ANYTHING He asks you to do. Continue to put your trust in Him. We're looking forward to enjoying your teens.
