Hudi Turns 19
It can be argued that his birth seemed like yesterday. And at the risk of sounding boring, that statement cannot be dismissed. But interestingly, it feels as if we’ve been together forever. I cannot fathom life without our kiddos — Hudson and Zebulon and CJ. What joy and inspiration they bring! Many parents worry about […]
And so it Goes
Today we took Hudi back to college. Christmas break is over, and the gift we had of our children’s presence in our home is now a ribbon of happy memories. Time is marching on, and we are — yet again– in a new stage of life.
Happy 17th Birthday, Hudi!!!
So how did this: Become this? We love you so much, Hudi! And we are so proud of the awesome young man you are. You are a great gift from God. Happy Birthday!

Run almost entirely by volunteers, it’s the one in which we hold our WordPress meetups. Yesterday it moved. Not by itself, of course. And not the building, really. To be more precise […]
Zeb's Last Year as a Teen
Yeah, he was cute as a little guy (says this totally un-biased mamma). But he’s even more awesome now! How do kids do that? They just keep getting better and better… Anyway, I digress. Today is our Zebulon’s 19th birthday. And we are so thankful for him. Zeb’s sense of adventure and eagerness to […]
