On April 13, 2015, we added another teenager to the family! Tobin Michael has joined his sister as one of the ever-hungry teens of our household! Since the countdown was on to get us out of the country, I had to keep expectations LOW for any kind of party, but really all Tobin wanted was the chance to hang out with his friends anyway. So we brought cupcakes and ice cream sandwiches to the homeschool park day and let them have at it along with football and whatever else the boys ended up deciding to do. I had a ministry meeting that I really needed to attend while this was going on, so unfortunately, while this was a great event for Tobin, I have no pictures to prove that we actually did invite people to join us in celebrating our son's birthday! So here are a couple of photos by the fabulous Mackenzie Neer of Neer and Far Photography, which we had taken just before we left Italy.
Tobin is growing into a handsome, witty, intelligent young man. It is amazing how much he has matured in the three years we were away from the U.S. We are proud of him and the growth he is experiencing in his faith and look forward to seeing how and where God will lead him!
