Jumping Off




I can't even begin to count how many photos I have of Ryan and Nathan together. I have pictures of them in their T-ball uniforms, at Six Flags, coloring Easter eggs, on the football field, playing in mud puddles, at birthday parties, - honestly, I could go on and on. They've been friends since they were 6 years old... Ten years of photographs really add up, and they're both used to the drill when I've got my camera out - they don't even gripe too much anymore!

Sometimes I wonder if they even know how lucky they are to have such a good friend in each other. They both have lots of friends, they hang out with a really good group of guys, and they're all very close. But Ryan and Nate are almost like brothers. They have fun, they're always brutally honest with one another, sometimes they fight, but they never really get mad. As they get older, and high school graduation gets closer, they're approaching the 'jumping off' point in their lives. My wish for them is that they'll always be buddies, no matter what comes next, no matter what they're jumping into....

How perfect, the photo and the journaling! You caught the photo at exactly the right moment! And look at their faith! Not even looking where they're jumping. . . .
