Uncle Scott

Today is my brother Scott's 31st birthday.

I love my brother like crazy. He is my 'little' brother but I look up to him so much.

He is incredibly talented. His career is construction and he's recently gotten into woodworking. He built Lauren a small kitchen cabinet and Samuel a barn. He built me a bench for my entryway to store diaper bags, shoes and to sit the kids on when they are getting dressed to go outside.

He loves the Lord. A lot. He preaches occasionally at his church and I enjoy hearing what the Lord is teaching him.

We talk about the kids (his son Aaron is 2 1/2 and his daughter Evelyn is 6 weeks younger than Lauren). I love that we get to parent our kids together. I often ask Scott for advice regarding Samuel because he's a lot like his cousin Aaron - full of energy and curiosity.

He's made plenty of mistakes in life just as I have. Together we are continually learning and growing and discovering what it means to follow our Creator.

I am so grateful that we have a close, authentic relationship.

I am so grateful that he loves the Lord.

I am so grateful he is a great uncle to Samuel and Lauren.

Happy 31st Birthday Scott. I love you deeply and I'm so proud to be your sister.

I read your blog all the time and had to finally post something as I remember babysitting you and your siblings when you lived in Chandler. When you post pictures of Scott's son it always brings back memories as he looks EXACTLY like Scott did as a youngster. Keep up the blog, even those of us who are not traveling the same path as you do get much comfort and peace while reading your messages of faith. Vonda Vander Woude
