Announcing A New Arrival

Grandson Dylan was born yesterday, October 16th, 2009. He is grandson number 9 and grandchild number 14. 
In December (if Christopher doesn't decide to come early) will be the arrival of grandson number 10 and grandchild number 15.

Our families are the most precious treasure we have on this earth.  They give us the desire to do things we may not normally want to do and they give us the joy of continuing our family name.

Children gives us a reason to carry on in the face of hardship and trials.

They are our legacy, and a representation of how well we prepared our children to face the world just as we had to do.

Family is why we go to work every day when we don't really want to, and why we do things that others will not do.

I can think of no greater joy on earth than to be a mother, a grandmother, an aunt, or a teacher of the little ones; watching them develop their personality and standing by their convictions.

We must protect these priceless gems because they depend on us. They need us to protect their future and their freedom to live in the same America that we were raised in.

Our legacy is what they will say about us when they think of what we did for them in protecting their freedom and their future world. What will they say about you? I know what they will say about me.
