Thirteen Years

Wasn't he the cutest baby ever?

After six years of infertility I couldn't believe that I finally had a baby.

Jamison Carl
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.


  1. Happy Birthday! Gosh your kids are so stinkin' cute! Even the teenager, yikes! Enjoy!

  2. Happy Birthday Jamison! Holly you have amazing children. Love ya!

  3. He was one of the most beautiful babies I've ever seen! What a handsome guy! Happy Birthday, Jamison! Believing you WILL enjoy the teen years! Love you all! :)
