Man how the time flies, journey with me on a mini-photo tour of my boys 16 years...



I barely remember this...but I know I loved him!



He grew into this guy at 4



Shooting his dad's gun 2000




at Memama's




In the Czech Republic 2004

Then he did this...


Just a trick before he cut it all off...




but it was really this... He shaved his head because a friend was having brain surgery
Oh! That wasn't enough--he went the whole way!!



Bic Baby!




With his best friend Kev eating wings in South Carolina


2005
It was a DARE and let me say he pulled it off!



To cool for school! 2006




at Disney
2008


2009 The day he got his driving permit




In 2009 he was led to start a mission



Modeling the kits his youth ministry makes to hand out to homeless


Happy Sweet 16!




I am proud of you Hunter!
Keep striving for this:

"A man is someone who rejects passivity, accepts responsibility, leads courageously, and expects a greater reward-

God’s reward!"

Ahh! My heart...hold on...I remember him being 4, and all the pictures after and ahhhhh...I have a verse for Hunter, if I may: Psalm 119, the whole thing. No, just kidding. Psalm 119:9-12 "How can a young man keep his way pure? By keeping it according to Your word. With all my heart I have sought You; Do not let me wander from Your commandments. Your word I have treasured in my heart, That I may not sin against You. Blessed are You, O LORD; Teach me Your statutes." NASB
