Happy Birthday Josiah!!

Wow!  Where does the time go?  It seems like yesterday that we welcomed all 9 lbs. 13 oz. of this guy into the world.  Well...maybe not yesterday, but surely it hasn't been 16 years?  Crazy!!  We are so thankful for such a wonderful son and his desire to serve God with his life.  This year has been full of changes, but Josiah continues to amaze us with his humble spirit, flexibility, and his ability to quickly build friendships.  It's exciting to think what the next 16 years will look like.  We just hope they don't go quite so fast!!!
