Best Captures Age three: I'm a grumpy old troll, and you can't get across my bridge!
Best captures a ten-year-old boy:
Best captures a fourteen-year-old: Tim, throwing a plastic Little People figure across the room and then saying, "Just my luck, I hit the picture. I was aiming for the lamp."

Favorite adolescent fiction: The Giver by Lois Lowry.
Favorite spiritual read: The Fulfillment of All Desire by Ralph Martin.
Low point: Going six for six with the stomach flu while out of town.
High point: John's last report card. Given that I've shared about our struggles, I would be remiss (and ungrateful) if I didn't report that he earned an "E" for "Excellent" in reading. (And an "E" for "Excellent" in "Respects Authority". Will wonders never cease?)
Times Flies: Thinking about the Thomas the Train birthday parties, the Star Wars birthday parties, and looking across the table at five teenage boys enjoying Tim's 15th birthday at a Japanese steakhouse.
Favorite Picture: John after he swam for the first time.
