Happy Birthday Emma

Fourteen years ago, I had no idea how my life was about to change. When Emma was born Adam and I were young and clueless and had no idea what we were doing. Thankfully we haven't screwed her up too much. :)

Emma is such a wonderful young lady. She is extremely successful at about anything that she puts her mind to, school work, athletics, you name it. Not only successful, she is also a very kind and compassionate person. In all of our moves, she has never had a hard time making new friends and almost welcomes the challenge. I could go on and on, I just love this girl so much.

I will tell you this, she once was the hardest child to deal with. She is extremely strong willed and when she was in her toddler years I was not sure we would make it this far. Thankfully, she has matured, I have gained wisdom in parenting and we made it through some of those harder days.

Emma is such a joy to our whole family and we are blessed to have her.

Happy Birthday Emma.

The Admiral

It has been so long, I almost forgot how to post on here.

Tonight we had the chance to go the Naval Academy and meet David Robinson. He was the most gracious celebrity I have ever met, like I have really met that many. He was so kind to the kids and took his time signing their various items, a poster, a "blue rim", Andrew's shoe, yes his shoe. :)

We had a great time as a family and it was refreshing to meet an amazing athlete and role model.
