I love this picture of our family in 1974:
Kids on shoulders

And this one taken during an earlier photo shoot:
Upshot of fam

I was just listening to a cassette tape of Nathen and me talking when he was just about the age of the second photo (2), and I'm so grateful to have captured him at that time in his life. He was so articulate and communicative! And he STILL IS! He is such a pleasure to talk to now as an adult, just as he was as a child. Only now he's 100 times smarter than me! He thinks circles around me.
Today, not only did he turn 38, but he started grad school and will begin his training as a marriage and family counselor. He'll be a great counselor!
Happy birthday, Nate!!

Thanks, Mom!

I might be smarter now, but I was cuter then.

OH those pictures! They just about take my breath away, they are so cute! Don't you just wish sometimes you could jump into that picture and just relive that day for even an hour? Somewhere it seems I should have a tape or 2 of when your boys would talk with mine through the mail. Not sure if we still have them, but they would be so fun to listen to now.
