Jordan is 21!

On Palm Sunday, 21 years ago, someone full of energy entered our lives. I do know I barely made it to the hospital and then had to wait 20 minutes for the doctor to arrive to deliver him. I remember him having the longest fingers and told his Dad, I bet he is going to play the piano one day. Well, he has played around with the piano, but he can sure play the guitar. Jordan has sure been a joy in our lives. He is a true man of God. He is a sophomore at a school in SC and plays football for them on the offensive line. He loves life and loves people which is obvious with all the friends that he has. God is truly using him now and in the future. We can't wait to see what God has in store for him. We love you Jordan and happy birthday from Mom and Dad.

His number is 79

Super Summer. As you can see, he gets into it!

Lauren's birthday bash with her friends

We took Lauren and 8 of her friends to Olive Garden and then went home to eat cake. Only we didn't eat the cake because they gave us one at the restaurant. So, I just took pictures of the cake. Does anyone want any cake that has not been eaten? If so, visit us.

Old Navy visit

Duane and I took Lauren to Old Navy to look for clothes for her and she decided she wanted to be in their commercial. So she posed for them. This was off my camera phone so it's small.

Someone turns 18!

Lauren has now reached the age of responsibility, maturity, and just plain old. Well, that's what we like to think. If you have known Lauren, you may not know her now. She was always a happy child and friendly, but now has turned into her own. This started happening when she reached middle school. We moved to Dublin for the school system for Jordan and Lauren to hopefully excel in their academics. That was truly accomplished. However, it was a great move for Lauren. She has met some of the best friends we could have imagined for her. It was obvious that God had a hand in this move. As you look at some random pictures of her, you will see some of the personality that we have all come to love. I would love to say she acquired this great personality from me, her Mom. But, we all know that is not the case. She has quite a bit of her father in her. We are both saddened that this day has come but we are both quite excited for her. The Lord has great things in store for her. She has definitely been a leader in her high school by setting an example of what a Christian is. It is quite obvious that she is loved by many as Duane and I were hearing her phone going off last night for facebook entries. She had over 100 well wishers. I don't even have 100 friends on my list. We love you Lauren and can't wait to see what God has in store for you next year as you begin your life at Liberty University. We are saddened to see you go. Enjoy these pictures of her.

Lauren's soon to be roommate at Liberty University, Kara Wheeler

Yes, that's Lauren.

She got hit by a Field Hockey ball right before a game.

She has the record in track of her high school in shot put. This is her last year to beat that record.

Jordan and Lauren both got sport jackets and they thought it would be funny to wear the other's one.
