Our firstborn, Jonathan, works at a local hospital as an ICU nurse. He met his beautiful bride, Matti, when he was 15 and both were volunteering as Red Cross swim instructors.
They married three years later and wasted no time in starting their family. At 29, Jon now juggles the roles of loving husband, doting father, and primary breadwinner, while Matti breastfeeds babies, homeschools, keeps house, volunteers at a local Crisis Pregnancy Center, and makes wonderful scrapbooks.
It’s a lot of responsibility for such young shoulders, but by God’s grace, they both do a terrific job of keeping all the balls in the air! Jon and Matti have given us six grandsons in eight years and are now expecting #7, but whether the newest addition will break the streak of boys remains to be seen. We’ll be happy either way, as their children are best friends to our younger kids — the little aunts and uncles who are closest to their ages!
