More Birthdays :-) Today - Amy & Tyler

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 17 August 2013 in People & Portrait.

This is truly a special time for Barbara and me. Our daughter, Amy, and Grandson Tyler were both born on August 17..... but not the same year of course! :-) ...

Amy is the shining example of one who cares-for, gives-to, and loves to help anyone in need. She has organized, taught, and managed Church School programs. She manages the concessions and activities for youth sports concessions. On top of all that, she is a special Education Math Teacher at a local elementary school! Of course, her students AND their parents, AND her fellow teachers all absolutely love her, as well as all her friends and neighbors. She is truly the prime example of a giving and very unselfish person. We are so very proud of her and we always will be!

Tyler is a multi-talented, fun loving guy who becomes deadly serious on the playing field. He has already attracted many coach's eyes and he will be playing Football and Baseball as he now enters his Freshman year in High School. He is a "killer" of a drummer, and can "cut up" like a comedian. He is a driven athlete and good scholar and he is totally fun to be around (except when he is on the playing field :-).

So, Barbara and I have big reason to be proud and plenty of reason to brag...
We love you Amy and Tyler! Have a Wonderful Birthday :-) <3
