My friend, Madeline, invited us over Friday for a morning of splashing in the baby pool. She lives just a few blocks away and has the sweetest little girl, Nanette. SB doesn't have many girl friends so we especially love playing with Nanette when we can. Madeline also invited another one of her friends from the neighborhood, Carolina, along with her little boy, Felix. After discovering that Felix and SB share the same birthday, May 1, 2010, we realized that we delivered our babies in the same hospital too. I laughed and said, "You probably heard me. I think I was pretty loud." Carolina said, "That was you?" Apparently, I was the reason that she got an epidural. She said she was considering going sans medication until she heard me. If natural childbirth sounded like that, she didn't want anything to do with it! It really is a small world after all.
We've been married for 14 years and have 2 little blessings, Sara Beth and John David. We strive to be the parents that God wants us to be for them. Before having kids, we traveled the world and had exciting adventures together. Now, in this season of our lives, we are still having adventures. They may look a little different, but these adventures are the ones that really matter.
