Mother & Son Share the Same Birthday: 17 August

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 17 August 2012 in People & Portrait.

It's another birthday in our family as today, August 17, our beautiful, wonderful daughter, Amy is 40 today (looking more like 23) and her son, Tyler (our middle grandson) is now 13!

We are so very proud of Amy. She is a highly regarded school teacher in Vermont. Her students and fellow teachers absolutely love her. She just simply has "the knack" for teaching and winning over the kids. She loves to entertain and is ALWAYS helping someone out.

Tyler has distinguished himself on the sporting fields AND in the classroom and music room as well (he is a great drummer - grandpa Denny is beaming)! Tyler also loves to entertain but more in an "on stage" way as he is always cutting up into character mode of some sort. The only exception to this is when he is on the field of play where he becomes as serious and focused as any athlete can be. He is truly a dynamic and wonderful young guy.

So, on this second "Brag Post" for August, Barbara and I just want to say "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" to Amy and Tyler. And thanks to all of you at AM3 for letting us brag just a bit more.

ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
