I am now an official....











mother to a teenager!! I am so excited. Tyler is such a cool kid and I am so glad we are all on this journey together. He had a big 13th bday bash and invited our whole youth group. (Speaking of our youth group...I cannot think of a finer group of young people than "The Difference", these kids are passionate about their walk with God...it is just awesome).   But back to Tyler....it just blows me away that he is 13. I have literally blinked and the time has flown by! I am so thankful for the children God has blessed us with. Yesterday in our morning devotions Bert was talking to our kids about leaving a legacy when you are gone, and what is the most important thing that you will be remembered for, and how our most important thing we want to instill in our kids is their walk with God...and how nothing will make us more proud than to see them grow up and raise their own children in church...it was pretty cool.
 Anyways, here are some pics from the momentous day...these are from Bert's camera. I took pics on my camera of all the airsoft war action but my camera is currently MIA.

Looks like fun! Hate we missed it :( Time does fly by so fast. Welcome to the teenager years :) It will all be good, Tyler is a good kid. It is so nice to have the support of such a great youth group and church too. He just needs 2 stop being taller than me!
