Today Evan is 19! What a mile stone.

Evan’s been living with us since September and we’re pretty glad he was born! We hope he feels loved and celebrated this and every day!

10 Things you should know about E:

1. Evan is really funny and has a great sense of humor, laugh, and smile.

2. Evan loves to game–he and Grant and Stahler have logged in many hours playing a game I cannot for the life of me remember the name of, but it involves strategy and killing people… so you’re guess is as good as mine 😉

3. Evan has a special place in his heart for Georgia girl (which in turn, has a special place in mine).

4. Evan has a ridiculously amazing work ethic. Wow.

5. Evan loves Jesus.

6. Evan understands that family is who you choose to let into your heart, and that family comes in many shapes and sizes. Family is awesome and we’ve created family in our little 3-bed room apartment.

7. Evan has a really fun girl friend, Gretchen, and we’ve adopted her, too… and her whole family… They’re pretty great 😉

8. Evan is a history buff who probably knows more about American History than… well any one I’ve met. And he’s knocking his history grades outta the park!

9. Evan likes to read. a lot. I like this about him. a lot.

10. Evan’s got a good head on his shoulders and, though it’s a marathon not a sprint toward self-discovery for all of us, I think he will really know himself and allow himself to be fully known–which is the best one can hope for in this life, I think.

Evan’s great and we’re happy to have him with us for this season of life. Through the ups and downs of two young {and stupid} 20-somethings trying to figure out how to “do” this thing called life with another, he makes us better. That’s awesome. We’re thankful.
