Homecoming 2012

I'm not positive how it came about, especially since our rule about dating is that you have to be 16.
BUT, when you are a 15 year old Junior, and have shown yourself to be trustworthy (AND, your mom is driving you), then sometimes it is OK to bend the rules a little.  His dad and I figured that if we made him wait until he was 16, then he would miss out on all the fun stuff- but we did make it clear that this was the exception to the rule.  So, Jesse got to go to the homecoming dance:

 Jesse and Emily.
She is a freshman or sophomore, and their family goes to our church.
 Her brother, Jared, has been one of Jesse's friends for a few years.

The four of them went out to dinner and then the dance.

And he was one happy, tired boy.

This Boy

This boy turned 13.
He is a runner- thus the "XC" on his cake, and the cool running shirt on his body.

 But, if you look closely at each of the pictures, you will see that his favorite gift is in his hand.

Happy Birthday, Caleb.
I love you with all my heart.
