Noah Turns 11


We are so blessed that God has allowed us to be your parents.  You are one great kid.  Right now your favorite sport is basketball but you enjoy baseball also.   You are an extremely busy kid.  What ever sport is going on at the time you usually have practice twice a week and games on weekends.  You love every minute of it.  You are doing great at school even with a busy sports schedule.  The first five weeks you came home with a B which you didn't think was a big deal at all.  You had chosen not to retake any of the test to get an A.  I mentioned that was okay but I would only pay you for A's and you haven't brought another B home this year.  School seems to come so easy for you.  You must get your dad's smarts.  Your favorite subject is Math and doing experiments in Science.  You really like your home room teacher this year  Mrs. Bailey.  The counselors at school are always trying to pair you up with the troubled kids.  They think you can lead them in a better direction.  I hope this is always the case.  You were chosen to be an ambassador for the second semester of school. 

You are the kid that everyone wants to be friends with.  You are kind, athletic, dependable and smart.  God has given you the ability to be a leader we hope you always use this for His work.  You want to win at everything you try.  Sometimes a little to much probably. 

You are a great big brother to Ti who adores you. You are such a help to your parents with all the little ones.  You entertain, go get diapers, feed bottles mostly without complaining.  We are very grateful for all your help.

Thank you God for blessing us with Noah.  What would we ever do without him.

Andrew Turns 8

What to say about this precious child......Andrew you are one of a kind.  We love the way that you are always doing spin moves.  You make us laugh daily.  If we could just get you to set down while we are eating supper we would be so happy.  For some reason you feel the need to stand up while you are eating.   You are a good friend and currently your best friends at school are Landon B and Luke.  Right now your favorite sports are basketball and baseball.  Of course we sometimes think that you are confusing football and basketball by the way you are always on the floor going after a ball.  At the beginning of the school year you were getting a few minuses due to attitude and your love of talking with others but you quickly got that under control.  You are doing great in second grade.  You always get 100% on your spelling test.  I think you and Noah are a lot a like in that area.  Your teacher is always telling me how she loves your personality.  You might would get in trouble a lot more if you weren't just so dang likable.  You love playing your iPod and you still like playing with men.  One of your favorite things to do while friends are over is to play Nerf guns or basketball.  One of the character traits that we love about you is your randomness.  You just never know what is going through you mind.  Sometimes you come up with something totally out there.  Your mind is always working....just like your momma.  Andrew we love you so much and are so blessed that God has lent you to us .
