In the short time that Jonathan was in our lives he sure made the rounds, and we captured some silly moments along the way too!
We spent our field work and vicarage years in Corunna, Indiana. We celebrated Jonathan's Easter here.
We had a lot of fun making the children smile. I'm pretty sure my Lutheran Stud is standing somewhere behind me making silly faces.
At the young age of 5 months Jonathan got to visit Mount Rushmore and then it was on to Washington. It was a long road trip from Indiana to South Dakota to Washington.
Then, he and I took off on a plane by ourselves. We landed in Seattle for a wedding. He was quite a traveled little boy.
Today would be his 10th birthday. It's hard to believe all that time has gone by. My Lutheran Stud and I love to talk about what things would be like, in our wild household, if he was still around. Would he be an instigator or a problem solver? Would eg his siblings on or would he be the level headed one? We'll always wonder. There a lot of things we'll always wonder about but, we'll never have to worry about our chunky, chubby cheeked little boy because we know he is safe in the arms of our Lord Jesus in heaven. We miss him immensely, but knowing he is in heaven helps just a tiny little bit. We'll celebrate that 10th birthday in heaven someday. Until then, we just remember him in the photos we have and thank the Lord for the short time he was able to spend with us. Happy birthday, Jonathan.
