Nathan was baptized on May 25th.
The only part he was nervous about was the water temperature. Blair has been his primary teacher and did a great job of having him prepared for such an important day. His new favorite sport is rock climbing, and he's getting higher each time he tries.
Rachel turned 13 this year. We had a blast taking her to a photo shoot. We can always tell when Rachel gets home - a wave of energy goes swarming through the house. Rachel is all about the trumpet lately. She auditioned for a state band in the beginning of October, and made one of the first few chairs, had a big jazz band solo, started private lessons, and is in the pit band at school for Annie the musical.
