Time Flies!

We celebrated the birthday of our firstborn in September. Sportster turned 5. I think back to a little over 5 years ago when the thought and act of parenting was still so foreign and filled with so many questions. We are still filled with questions and seeking God for His wisdom, but the questions have changed. Nothing can really completely prepare you for the joy, the responsibility, the emotional challenge and the work of parenting. In the early days it is all you can do to just keep up with diaper changes and feedings and trying to fit in sleep whenever possible. Time has flown by since that time in our lives when Sportster was a newborn. Now he is on to writing his letters, learning to read, riding his bike, talking on the phone to his grandparents, and learning about the Lord. We are so blessed to have him in our lives! He brings our home so much laughter.

Here are few shots from his birthday. Grandma, Grandpa and Great Grandma were able to visit during that time, which made it extra special. On his birthday we went to the zoo and to his favorite restaurant and a few days later he had a special outing on the Royal Gorge Train with Grandma and Grandpa.

Our little boy is indeed growing up!
