Happy Birthday Lauren!

Today is Lauren's 10th birthday. I can't believe that I now have three kids in the double digits. We celebrated with the usual night out at Red Robin on Monday night. We had friends from church join us for dinner.

Lauren is one of the most lovely little girls I know. Some things I love about her are the following. She LOVES people. She would have people over everyday if she could. She is also incredibly compassionate and merciful and often looks out for the one left behind. She is very generous, always the first to share any of her stuff. She got a new shirt for her birthday and offered to let Lis wear it first. Unheard of! She is a hard worker and doesn't cut corners. She gets the job done well and as soon as possible. I could go on but I won't. I love these things about her and many more. Today we are celebrating the gift of Lauren's life. We are so blessed to have her as part of our family and we are so thrilled with what God is doing in her heart! He is going to do wonderful things for His glory through her life! Happy 10th Birthday Lauren! WE LOVE YOU!

Happy Birthday, Lauren! Hope you have a wonderful, special day. :)

What a small world, I know the Spielman's too (from Master's and Grace) - too fun!

Luke is turning 10 June 11th and he misses his buddy Lauren! This is John by the way - sitting in a hotel at the approach to Chicago O'Hare - watching planes land as I speak. One of these trips - I'll have to come on out to Rockford for a visit!

Hey John! Yes, definitely, you need to come out to Rockford to see us. It's not exactly on the way to anything...that is the bummer. Sometimes it takes us 2 hours to get to Ohare. Yuck!

We all miss the Copley's!!!!
