Many Years Later! - [The Papa]

Amazing to think that Harris is almost 14 now! He's 4' 11 1/4" and 92 lbs. I remember when this website was updated every day because every day was a milestone and a fight just to breathe. Now the updates are sporadic as life has become more relaxed.

We still have challenges and Harris still has many more milestones down the road. Now it's nice to feel more like an ordinary parent. A big question you may have, "Is Harris normal?" Definitely not! I'm not sure why I ever thought Harris might be normal, when I never really considered myself to be normal. Ok, so maybe that's not quite what you were getting at. He still has some developmental delays and some quirks that trace back to prematurity. For the most part his challenges are catching up academically and socially. In this chapter of his life he has finished his specialized public education and moved on to intensive home school education in preparation for college and advanced learning. We are excited to see what God has in store for Harris in the many years to come.

God still does miracles! Harris is a testament to that every day.

As always, thanks for your continued prayers and support!

Papa Harris Day!!! - [The Papa]

Train Festival 2009 - Owosso Michigan

One of my favorite things about summer time is the days when Harris and I get to hang out together. Today we made it up to check out the many sights at the Train Festival.

We got to go on Harris' first train ride behind an old fashioned steam locomotive.
110 Locomotive

Here's a few pictures of us on the festival grounds in a Big Red Caboose.

Harris is just over 46 inches tall now.
Harris and the Grand Locomotive!

Harris and old No. 1
Harris and I loved this little locomotive because we got to go up inside of it while it was running.  This was the classic event where Harris got to sound the whistle.  Of course he didn't want to stop.

For more info on the 110 Locomotive and No. 1 check out their home website Little River Railroad.  They normally run most of the year round down in Coldwater Michigan.

Sir Harris! - [The Mama]

Harris was able to go the Waukesha Scottish Festival this year and met some wonderful people in the McLeod Tent.  Miss Pat fell for Harris' charms and sent him this Knight outfit as a gift and Harris Loved it!

He was shouting and running at his Papa.  They battled with sword and battle-axe. The had so much fun playing together.

Sir Harris
