I was looking back over older blog posts today, and realized just how much things/we have changed since I started blogging! Just looking at the pictures on my header make me laugh. I really need to update my pictures. Chuck and I, as well as our kids don't look much different...but grand kids have changed!
Not only physically, but they are becoming such great people!
I thought I'd do a quick update on them. Today is Jacob's day!!

I just love this guy!! If God would have asked me to make a list of what I wanted in a grandson...I would not have changed a thing about him.
In the header picture he looks so little! Kristy says the "puberty fairy" came to visit him in the past year or so, and looking at these new pictures....I believe her!

Jacob is such an "old soul". I love that about him! He is all most 15 now, and has a true love for God, his family, BMX biking, and FOOTBALL! This is his freshman year in high school, and he's playing on 3 football teams. He starts on the Freshman team, plays JV and varsity!
Needless to say, our weekends are filled with tailgating, and cheering on the Wildcats! (that's one proud Pawpaw waving in the back).
I can't believe how much he's grown!
I tease Kristy about giving him an iv infusion of miracle grow before every game!

This is Jacob's second favorite pass time! The boy can do things on a bike that I never dared try on my two feet! He spends every chance he gets with his buddies at the skate park. Those times consist mainly of who can jump the highest, or take the biggest dare! UGH.... scares me to death!
What is it about boys and dares?

With all of these activities, he still finds time for his school work,
(he's consistently on the principals list) and he always has time to spend with his Pawpaw and Nana.
He even wrote on his Facebook wall that his Grandparents rock!
I was so honored!!
And...he still has tea parties with Lyric, or plays Dora when ever she wants.
Yes, I believe the Good Lord knew what he was doing when he gave babies to young women.....
I'll take grand kids any time!

Wow, Neat tribute! He has grown and it is so neat to see our Grandkids grow into loving young adults.
