I haven't written lately about Nicholas, mainly because I've been waiting to write an ENTIRE post dedicated to our eldest son who is making his way in the world. But since many of you have asked I'll give a quick update: He is thriving in his new job as a computer engineer. Right now he works a lot of overtime, but he likes his coworkers so it's all good. He plays tennis Friday night and goes out with friends on Saturday night. He attends church on Sunday. He takes care of his apartment and is learning to cook. He still paints, and he plays the guitar and piano. He calls every Sunday night and we talk forever. We miss him. We are proud of him.

Jonathan starts an internship this January. At first Joe and I were hesitant. He will be taking a full course load at school, working a minimum of 20 hours at an accounting firm, and commuting to Macon on the days he works. But he came home last weekend, presented us with his game plan, and reminded us (yet again) that once he sets goals, he gets things done.

Timothy's life can be summed up in two words: basketball tryouts. This summer he purchased brand new basketball shoes which have been in a box just waiting for basketball season to begin. This weekend he wore them for the first time to break them in, and last night those shoes ran up and down the gym for Night #1 of tryouts. Oh, the drama. The worries. The angst. Stay tuned ...

Maria has been maneuvering her way through the publishing world. It's a dark, dark lonely place. I've had good news, no news, conflicting news, and be patient news. It's about the birth of dreams, the sting of rejection and, yes, glimmers of hope. All on repeat. As with Timothy ... stay tuned.
