the men in my little girls' lives.....

are you humming that song? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3u5OMnxsBQ I used to want my dad (well, truthfully....i wanted to sing it...but that wouldnt make sense) to sing this song at my wedding...still makes me cry.... Jasmine and David...he accepts the post of patriarch of the children....working at an engineering firm and going to school full-time---graduates in electrical engineering in a year....he always keeps me guessing...i think i've figured him out and he surprises me....very focused on doing the right thing and planning for the future....a steelers fan----but we accept that....will be interesting to see him as a dad of an out of control 18 month old baby boy! Joe & Leah----graduates in a year in physics---then off to medical school? these two are very well matched....almost too well....they care and take care of each other....and love their baby boy and the Lord. Their life is a bit overwhelming.....school, poor starving students...but they've made good friends in Utah and have a great support system. He doesnt like fast food! wow!
I've only met Ben twice---so time will tell....but he is a mediator and calming influence...a necessary and appreciated skill in the drama which is us.....graduates in may in electrical engineering and will be looking for a job while lyric finishes nursing school. think we may intimidate him at this point......really? us? intimidating!?
anyway---i want to take a moment to pay homage to the men in my little girls' lives...each boy could have their own post....and probably will at some point....interesting to see what my girls are drawn to....and to see how close they married their father! Dave, Joe...now Ben...my darlings' prince charmings.....

Dave & Joe have established themselves in the family....ace loves them as older brothers....we love them as sons....i have no doubt Ben will be the same...i've already watched him run around jas' apartment shooting elastic bands at ace.... he'll fit in nicely.

good job ladies

They are great men, arent they? But it is truly scary when they have a 'Dave Jeppson' moment...
