We're Having a Son!!

While this blog should be about the amazing running feats accomplished by Ali, (5K) Abbi, (13.1 miles) Cody, Anna (26.2 miles each!) and many others of our friends Sunday at the Memorial Marathon, that news actually took back-seat to this news!

Yep, we're adding another member to the ManyMeadows!  Abbi made it 19 and Cody Light, who will be our fourth son-in-love, will make us a 20-member family!   (Ck out these heart-warming shots)

We couldn't have chosen a better-suited man for our daughter Anna.  He came and asked Dirk's and my permission to marry Anna about 3 weeks ago.  It was a sweet and blessed time. He had already planned on asking her after their run....and he did....and she said, "Yes!"

They're looking at a July or August wedding!  Guess what we'll all be busy doing in the next three months?  (And, we have Andrew and Abbi's wedding on May 29!)  Fun!!

I am so stoked for all of you!!!

This is so not fair. I don't know if I can handle a second ManyMeadows wedding happening and me not being there. :)

Oh how you and Dirk show us what happens with a family when you are faithful to our Lord. It is such a blessing to see.

Thank You!!

I think pretty much any girl would run 26.2 miles if she knew there was a handsome man with a DIAMOND waiting at the finish line!! haha.

SO EXCITED!! This summer is going to be INSANE (but, the good kind, of course!) :)

"It's better to marry than to burn with passion."

Did I say that outloud? :)
