  1. i love these pictures…how sweet. i want a brother. can i borrow yours?

    i can’t believe how much your kids look like you and your brother.


  2. Kristin – I would have sworn those pictures were Naomi and Micah if I hadn’t known better. Wow, the resemblance is absolutely amazing!


  3. Hey! We were with you when the school pictures were taken and were sooooo proud of you all! Kristin, you went into the school and we stood outside with Jon! He was the only kid with white hair. The kids called out to him — “Hi Whity!” or something like that.
    We love you all Oma/Omi and Opa/Opi


  4. What an incredible post! Really amazing! In the picture of you with your dad, you’re holding the doll and your brother with the uno cards . . .I HAD THAT SAME BROWN CHAIR!!! I bought it when I was first out of college in the 80’s (ok maybe it wasn’t the same chair, but it looked JUST THE SAME). I think I paid about $5 for it and I loved it!


  5. All I know to say is THANK YOU! I’ve probably looked at this post a dozen times by now. Each time I get a lump in my throat. This father’s heart is deeply moved by the love fostered, maintained and grown by your wonderful care of relationships. Amazing!

    Much love to all!



  6. Very, very sweet! The school picture at the DDC made me smile. I clearly remember playing hopscotch just outside that door.
