Welcome to our family! My deepest desire is to point others to Christ, who continues to dramatically changed me into His image. May God's glory be revealed through the ups and downs of our family.



What a great Father's Day! My family came to our house for the last time :( before the move, and we celebrated the gift of Dads. We ate super yummy food, and bounced on the trampoline. My sister is quite the accomplished bouncer, as you can see. She managed to do front and back flips with grace, and had a ton of fun too! You go Tara!

Family Farm Fun!

Without a doubt, we had more fun in two days than I can remember having for a long time. We were delighted to spend some time with my Aunt Doodle and Gary on their farm in Paris, Illinois. The boys climbed on tractors, rode front seat in an RV, rode in the back of a pick-up truck and helped plant flowers, and got to ride on their riding lawn mower. I am not sure who had more fun, me or the boys... Best statement of the trip, Garrett yelling, "I am a farm boy Mom!" Love are first sight, and best of all, Doodle rates number one for the boys! Thanks Doodle!!


My Little Soccer Player

At times I feel like I just had Garrett, and yet, here is my big boy, starting to play organized sports. I use the word, play, loosely! Sometimes he played, sometimes he played(with the other kids, not soccer!) Nonetheless, I am learning that if he is having fun, that is all that matters. I cannot believe how fast he is growing. What a joy!
