Growing Up

Dear Mom,

When the kids were in for Christmas, it's interesting to see how they mature a little more each year. This year it seemed like there was a bigger shift as I'd listen in on conversations. By the grace of God, all three are responsible, respectful, kind-hearted, and talented. They beat to their own drum and they're following their own dreams... despite obstacles. They're strong individuals, unique and full of love. I would assume most mother's say this about their children, but it's really true. I wish you all could've met and known each other this life.

Here's a picture I took when my three children got together with their dad's other two children. Starting from the left and moving to the right:

My (oldest) son, Casey. He's 28. Ethan, 15. My (baby) daughter, Rita who's 24. Erik, 20. My (middle) daughter, Jessica, 26.

Here's a pic of just the boys:

And here's one of just my crew:


  1. Such beautiful children, Lynn...and they look happy which is great too.

  2. What nice-looking kids. They look creative and look like they each have their own spark. (It IS nice to see them mature from one year to the next, isn't it?)

  3. Aw Thanks Mom! What a lovely post! We're awesome! Yeah!

  4. laptop is blocking the photos! I'll be back after visiting you from my hubby's computer.

  5. Great looking group you have there!!

    1. That is what I was going to say! Wow, you have posted a lot since I've been here, Lynn. It is nice to catch up and also to read about your history.

      Hey, I couldn't figure out how to leave a comment except for replying to another person's comment. Any tips?

      Thanks for coming to see me!

  6. Yah! I'm finally able to comment! And it only took 3 days of the Blogger Blues to have it happen.

    Your kids are adorable. You must be so very proud of them!
