Happy Birthday Ryan!




Today we're celebrating my oldest's 17th birthday.  I will admit to being a very proud mom.  He is growing into a very nice young man.  Most importantly, I love that he is happy.  He enjoys school, show choir, writing music, umpiring and hanging out with his friends.  He loves being with his family especially his cousins.  I love that we consistently here that he is outgoing, confident yet not cocky, and not afraid to have conversations with his friends and their parents.  He may not know it yet, but I know that he'll more than succeed in life.  He has a calm way with others that will serve him well his entire life. I'm proud of him and love him more than words can say.  Happy 17th Ryan! 
And before I go, I have a card to share with you for my dear friend, Sandy's daughter.  She'll see this card before Ashley does!  Ashley graduates next week from 8th grade.  My card features the school colors of her high school.  Ashley is a beautiful, amazingly talented young lady.  I can't wait to see what all she accomplishes in high school. She's bright, outgoing and an amazing volleyball player. Here's to an amazing start to high school for Ashley.  The card is for the Viva La Verve sketch.

  10. Happy Birthday to Ryan Lynn, and yes you should be so proud of your son. From everything you ever say about him he sounds like such a wonderful young man. They grow so quickly, blink and you miss it--so glad that you didn't. He is a fine young man because he has great parents who support him. Love your graduation card--fantastic colours!
