Luke's House

When we moved into our house on 3824 Clinton Ave Luke was almost 4 years old.  At that time he was not Luke but instead would only respond when called Spiderman or Peter Parker. He had just been adopted by Chris a couple days before we moved in and became a big brother a week after we moved in.  He was silly, full of energy and creativity, and a pure joy.

Over the past 8 years he has grown into an amazing young man of God.  He is empathetic, desires peace and harmony, and has fully grown into his role as leader of the siblings.  He cherishes his sisters and it is precious to see.  
Luke quickly became friends with the neighbor across the street, Troy.  They have been best friends for the past 8 years and it is one of the most difficult things about moving.
They went from wee boys to tweeners hanging out at the MOA and the MN State Fair together.

  1. Precious Luke - You will be able to keep your friendship with Troy alive and well, given all the communication technology available, today. Won't that be exciting! When I was seven, we moved from my favorite childhood home. I had just found a best friend, but we weren't able to keep in touch, I'm sorry to say. Writing letters would have been all we had, and I hadn't learned how to do even that, back then! You are a blessed young man, Luke, and I'm so happy to be part of your family! God bless you! Lots of love and hugs from your Aunt Eda (& Uncle Howard, too)
