The oldest is getting married~! Wow, I never thought I would see the day that Nolan would be married! He was the one that either picked the girls that Mom and Dad would never approve of, or just plainly had no interest in "settling down". Maybe nearing 27 in November, he has decided "it's time". Thank God we like Jessica. She is beautiful, intelligent, low key and yet can whip Nolan into responsibility mode in 2.7 seconds. They balance each other well, when Nolan can get her to relax a little and enter his goofy mode. We're happy to have Jess join our family. By the way....NO! He doesn't normally wear a cowboy hat! Did I mention he has a goofy side? This picture is taken at Michigan International Speedway, at a Nascar race the two of them treated my hubby to.... V.I.P. passes and all! Aren't they cute!?
It's so strange. My husband and I have a son of our own, but when my husband and I met, Nolan was younger than the age our son is, now. He (and his two siblings) have always lived with us and, yes, I claim them as my own. Donny has been married three years now and has two children, now Nolan is getting married and Marie is discussing marriage as well. I'm so proud of all of them. Of course as a parent, you always want the very best for them and believe the plan that WE have mapped out for them is the very best plan, but they have each found their own way. They have grown. They will continue to grow, and I am blessed to be a part of that process.
It's amazing how time flies!
