I have known Dave and Grace from my time at UIUC. Dave and I were in the same science teaching cohort. We are both certified to teach 6-12th grade science. Grace and I worked together at a middle school in Champaign, IL for a brief year. The last time I had really seen these two was at their wedding! And now they have a little one crawling around!
It was good to catch up with old friends and to meet their newest addition, Samuel. He is such a cutie! And SUPER friendly! He was crawling on me within a minute! =) As you scroll through these images…isn’t it amazing how one child has SOOOOO many different expressions and looks?
These days Dave also serves as the youth Pastor at Canaan English Chapel and Grace as the Children’s Ministry Director. It was my privilege to not only connect relationally with these two, but to also serve them as they serve the Lord.
So here’s Sammy…who just completed his first year of life! May the Lord continue to bless Samuel with good health and a heart for Him.
Guess who’s a chicago sports fan? =) Though I am glad to know that Grace’s family sports the 2005 World Series Winners. So let’s make sure Sammy grows up cheering for the winning baseball team in Chicago. =)
He’s looking forward to some grub….
And in it goes!
All gone! =)
And daddy is teaching all the important skills in life…like Guitar Hero!
Thanks Dave and Grace for great conversation and a wonderful dinner-
Looking forward to seeing you sometime in the future-
