After living with us for his final year of high school (Topeka High class of 2009 - Go Trojans!), Matt decided to join the Navy. He survived boot camp and was initially set to be a submariner stationed in Connecticut. But claustrophobia got the best of him and now he's stationed in sunny California and working on the deck of an air craft carrier!

Ali is a senior at Conestoga High School in Nebraska. She recently accepted a full-ride Regent's Scholarship to the University of Nebraska-Omaha, where she will be freshman in the fall. She's active in Tae Kwon Do and many music-related activities.

Cami is 5 years old and in kindergarten. She is super-smart and a little ornery, but we have yet to make a trip to the principal's office -- thank the Lord!

We welcomed Luke almost a year ago. It's hard to remember what life was like before the little guy arrived. Life is definitely more hectic now, but he has made our family complete!
