With my anniversary approaching, our past, present, and future has been on my mind. I started going through our photo albums - both scrapbooks and everything digital. It's been fun to reminisce, to see how much we've grown (both in numbers, spiritually, and personally). I wanted to put together a brief photo collage - just one or two pictures of our family from each year. I'm such a visual person. This is what happens when two people fall in love . . . I can't wait to see what the next 13 years bring!
August 20th, 1998
I married my very best friend, John Ferguson.
He makes me laugh, curls up with me when I cry, and loves me perfectly.
Our first child, Isaac, was born in August.
He was such a happy little guy and made us into a real family.
Isaac turns 1 year old!
Fast Forward to Fall 2003
I don't have my pictures scanned for the years between. =)
Isaac (3) and his sister MJ (2) playing together at the Pumpkin Patch.
This was one year after Isaac was diagnosed with autism. I was so grateful he had MJ, his very best friend and favorite person to play with.
We welcomed another little boy to the Ferguson Clan - Rob!
Rob (2 weeks), Isaac (5) and MJ (3)
Isaac graduated preschool and started Kindergarten.
MJ started preschool.
Mom and Dad stressed, but kept up their weekly date nights!
A trip to Washington coast for a week as an anniversary trip . . .
and lots of fun museum visits with the munchkins!
