Adding to the "Family"

Where, oh where, does the time go? It seems like just a couple of years ago that these kids were lined up on our Michigan cabin deck doing their talent show. Left to right: Patrick, John, Sean, Anne, Drew.
And now, the fourth wedding out of these five has just taken place! Over this past weekend, we were wedding witnesses as Patrick R. wed Katie C., the son of Carol and Mark to the daughter of Glen and Barbara. We have known Patrick for his whole life and have considered Patrick, Sean and Drew to be "family." As have Anne and John considered them to be their "cousins."
The wedding was held in the Isaacson Chapel on the NPU campus. Beautiful.
Anne and Drew had a chance to reconnect at the reception. Long ago Carol and I wondered if our two oldest would someday tie the knot themselves...each have now happily married others.
These two newlyweds are so happily paired. We wish them a lifetime of joy, health, growth and bounty. And we now welcome Katie into the family as well!
The wedding brought together our dear friends also. Of the eleven children we have raised between us, five are now married with six to go! It has become our tradition to gather at weddings and we are excited as there are more to come...someday perhaps. We are patient. Right? Right!

I cannot keep up with your life anymore. Not only the weddings, but the projects! You are the definition of whirlwind. Check out the new blog link on my blog called My Farm Notes.
