Eighteen Years and Counting…..

Kelli and Michael have grown up together - just down the street from each other.  In fact Mary Lou and I were pregnant with them at the same time.  They've celebrated Birthdays and Christmas together for 18 years.   Sometimes when one or the other is having a problem, they'll hop in the car and head to Hacienda for dinner and a chance to just "catch up" on each other's life.

High school is almost over and soon they'll be separated by college - but I'm sure their friendship will continue through the years.

Here's a photo taken during the spring of their 5th grade year at Corpus Christi - seven years ago.  Kelli had just been awarded this plaque from her coaches and teammates on the girl's basketball team - showing a newspaper article of her brother, playing basketball at a deserted university outside of Baghdad.  A plaque that still hangs proudly in our home.
