Today was Kennedy's first sunday at church. While there, she slept the whole time (why she can't do that at night, I don't know). After church, we were all talking about how neat it is that Kennedy's first sunday alive, she was at church. Raising a daughter to love God seems like such a daunting task, but both Laura and I have had generations of examples that it makes it seem very possible. We can't thank our parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and other family members for their example of loving God and relying on His strength. After a few sleepless nights, I already know it's not out strength, or know how that will encourage Kennedy to love Christ. So we thank God every day for giving us famalies as examples of Christ on earth.
Well, Kennedy is finally here!! It seems like it has been a long time coming, but I can't believe she's here. She was 7 lbs. 12 oz. and 19 in. long (Laura thinks 2 of those inches were her cone head). Laura's water broke at 11:55 on Monday night (6/6) and we went to the hospital. At 8:00 they gave Laura some medicine to help her contract, and at 3:00 p.m. she started pushing. Almost 4 hours later (all of pushing) Kennedy made her first appearance. She is absolutly beautiful. Both mom and baby are doing great. Make sure you click on this picture to view a few more. Take care, and please say a prayer for Kennedy Joy. While you're at it, you can drop a line for Laura and I as well. I know we will need it.
Alright, I know I've already done two other postings today, but this picture is too good. This is Nathan. He is an absolute HOOT!!! I just see him coming down the hallway and I just know it's a good day. What a kid.
My first year at my new school was great. I taught 6th grade math and science at Metamora Grade school this year. I had a lot of fun kids this year, as you can see. I'm so grateful for the opportunities God has given me to be a part of so many lives.
