Jackson's 1st Word (besides DaDa & MaMa)

My parents dog's name is Daisy, which is why he said it.  I don't think he's that into flowers.  He is 10 months old in this video.

His other official words include: cow, car, and hors-devours. :)

CCR Week 4

We can't believe our time at CCR is almost over.  What a gift this time has been!  Hundreds of high school kids have come to know the Lord, and we have watched Jackson grow up before our eyes.  Here are some recent pics...

One of Jackson's favorite activities...playing by the pool while his friends swim.

Standing up like a big boy.

Playing with the grass.

Waiting for Club to start.  This week we have a lot of Urban kids's so fun!

CCR Week 3

Here are some recent photos.  We are still having a blast, experiencing the privilege of watching kids come to know Jesus in a personal way, and loving living in community here.

Ryan leading a portion of the new Christian walk on the last of camp.  Last week 136 students began a relationship with Christ!

Young Life believes in excellence in everything so as to most clearly reflect the gospel of Jesus.  Even the flowers are over the top!  I mean, look at this flower basket!

Jackson and David playing.

Jackson and Daddy having fun in the wrestling ring.

David is so sweet to Jackson.  He even likes to hold on to his stroller when we walk.

The program guys and their families.  Top: Ryan, Matt, Jack, and Bryan.  Bottom: Ellen, Jackson, Lensey, Laynie, and Camille (with Baby Colette in her tummy!)

All camp hike.  Mom and Dad, the hike we do now is different than the ones you guys did's much easier now!!

Beautiful wildflowers!

This is the 2nd week in a row that campers have carried their disabled friend on a "chariot" up the mountain.  It's amazing.  I can't walk too close to them or I can't stop tearing up.  Reminds me of the guys who brought their paralyzed friend to Jesus through the roof.  

Ryan and I got to hike without Jackson.

Ryan and Carson.
