Happy Birthday Grayson!





Today is Grayson's 17th birthday! I can't believe my little boy is already that big! Grayson has been such an absolute joy to have as a son! God has richly blessed me with all four of my sons, every one of them is so special and wonderful! I am so proud of how his character is really showing, how he is becoming a strong man of God, is a hard worker and is a kind person.


Part of what makes Grayson such a fascinating person is that he has so many varied interests! He is a three sport athlete - football, basketball and track and also is on student government (he is the student body treasurer) and in FFA (Future Farmers of America). He also goes to church and is active with the youth group. He works about 12 hours a week at a gas station. During his spare time he is always inventing something or tinkering with something. Some of his inventions/projects have been......turning a riding lawn mower into a go-kart, turning a regular bicycle into a motor bike by adding a weed whacker motor, building a tribuchet (catapult), building a steam engine that works, making an air conditioner out of an old cooler and fan, building forts and setting up zip lines out in the trees, building a raft out of logs that really worked when we were camping, etc. the list goes on and on. One time he called me up to his room and he had made an invention that when he was laying in bed he pushed a button and the door would close! Amazing! His current project is building a remote control car that is gas powered.


We are so thankful the Lord gave us Grayson. He has been such a delight to have as a son. We are so proud of him and enjoy him so much!


"Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them." Psalm 127:3-4

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO GRAYSON!! Today is Austin's birthday too. He is 13 today. My last son is now a teenager. Austin is always into inventing stuff too, but not anything as high tech as Grayson has!
How funny that they have the same birthday. I told you we a lot of neat things in common!
