Grantham and his daddy ran in a one mile race two weeks ago. Grantham was so excited and told everyone HE was going to win. John said that Grantham did great the first half mile but then got distracted at the water break area (saying hi to everyone and checking out the police cars). On the way back to the finish line (3/4 mile), Grantham realized that he didn't have his water cup and made daddy go back to get it. Needless to say Grantham did not come in first. In fact, he even took a few stops to wave the police car behind him to "pass." Daddy tried to explain the police were there to keep other cars from hurting him but Grantham just kept insisting that the car pass him:) We are very proud though because our three year old was the youngest participate to complete the race! After the race was over we asked Grantham would he want to do this again and he said NO. I guess it is back to sprinting for this family:)
Before the race At the starting line, Grantham did not like the loud gun shot that started the race
A great picture someone from our church took of Grantham
What a great stride:)
Right before he crossed the finish line (there were two people who finished behind him-one was his daddy)
With the baby' s room finally done, we are in count down mode T minus 5 days!!!! Keep an eye here for pictures of the new baby. John will probably post them for me.
Grantham has been so excited about his new baby brother, Isaac. We decided to make a chain to help him understand how much longer he had until the baby arrived - this is the chain when we first started it about a month ago.The baby bed and view when you first enter the room.To the right of the bed is this chair. Beside the chair is a little bookcase that has been used over and over - I am pretty sure it was used in my room when I was a baby.
as you leave the room, the changing table. Hope you enjoyed the tour of the baby's room - we had a blast creating it!
John and Tabitha met while studying abroad in Grantham, England at a college called Harlaxton. Two years later, they were wed in a beautiful outdoor wedding attended by friends and family from all over the world. John was an aspiring dentist, and Tabitha planned on changing the world one child at a time-teaching. Within a year John decided that he needed to change directions in his medical career and enter medical school instead of dentistry. The years that followed were full of ups and downs but ultimately we ended up completeing four years of medical school and six years of teaching in Indianapolis, IN. With God's gentle guidance, we matched for a pediatric residency in Greenville, SC. Another move and another adventure . . . we soon found out that we were pregnant with a baby boy who we chose to name Grantham after the place it all began. Recently, we became the parents of two beautiful boys (our second son is named Isaac - which means laughter).
