We can't believe Luke is 8!

Bradford "Luke" Hunter was born on January 28, 1999 at 11:10pm after a looooong labor and then a c-section. Brad, Memoo, and Neena were in the room to see it all, and Memoo belted out "He's perrrrr-fect" when she laid eyes on him.
...And we blinked our eyes and now he's 8--all 53" of him. Luke remains our sensitive soul, a boy with a heart for Jesus, for animals, for people. Today he wants to be a scientist when he grows up, or maybe open a fish store on the ocean. Never stop dreaming, son.

We celebrated his birthday with his cousins Ben and Mikey, and a group of boys from his 2nd grade class at Sheridan Hills. Some of the days events--Pokemon card trading session, pummeling a Pinata, capture the flag with Nerf guns, trampolening, and his favorite cake ("Stacey's Cake", from the Cake Doctor Cookbook).

As you can see, we are so thankful for the friends our kids have made. Please pray for our Luke, as well as for Abby and Levi, that God would give them all great friends in Vienna, and that his American friendships would continue to grow even as we are an ocean apart.

I remember Memoo saying that she ate a whole big bag of M&M's while you were in labor! I hope Luke's birthday weekend was a great one! Love, Kim
