I was very happy that I have a great lens and was able to get some great shots. My favorite photos were of someone else, bummer. We were not sure which jumper she was so I took pictures of all of the skydivers.
Erik sat through the whole training with Mikaela and REALLY wanted to jump too. I am sure that he will someday. The children were all hot so they sat under the picnic table for some shade and enjoyed some Popsicles that Kelly brought just for the occasion. The boys even enjoyed some basketball while we were waiting.
I cannot believe that I have a daughter who is old enough to go skydiving. The time really does go too fast. Renee once said to me, "The days are really really long, but the weeks go by fast."
That is so true. I value all the time I got to spend with Mikaela as she was growing up and wish that I could have a few more years of influence to shape her into a Godly woman.
Becoming a parent of an adult is difficult and exciting at the same time. You never stop caring. Prayer becomes much more fervent and frequent because you don't have the control that you do when they are young. Ahh, how naive I am I am never in control they all belong to God and should be constantly treated as God's.
