Luke turns 13! Ok, so his birthday was in April but I wasn't bloggin yet. Are retroactive blogs allowed? :)

At Luke's birthday we invited staff and elders over to pray for him in celebration of his turning 13. We asked that they pray for his faith and his future as a spiritual leader. It was a sweet time. Good buddy Johnny Provost is in the picture at the bottom right hand side. Not sure why Jacob is closing his eyes, maybe he was still praying.
Luke was gifted the often requested Beef Jerky from Liv and Emma.
This kid lives and breaths USC stats...that's for you Dad and Uncle Jona. (He had a weird bump on his head when we took this...)
Luke at Lake Chelan last year.
LOVE this kid! We feel so blessed to call him our son.
I can't believe I have a 13 year old! I feel like I was just 13. :)

"My son, if your heart is wise,
My own heart also will be glad;
And my inmost being will rejoice,
When your lips speak what is right"

Proverbs 23:15

What a great reason to rejoice!

Welcome to the world of Blogging, Bets! Looks GREAT!
We had so much fun connecting with you and John briefly on Tuesday! Can't believe how long it had been - life changes so quickly, huh? We are looking forward to a time when we can see you again and spend MORE time enjoying your company. Tell all your kiddos hi for me and that I'm sorry we missed them.
Much love,
Chris, Lisa & baby Claire
