We celebrated Loren's 15th birthday on July 13th. A girl's 15th birthday is traditionally a significant birthday in Peru and other latin American countries. It's called the quinceaños (15 years, and is a coming of age celebration when a girl becoming a lady.
Loren poses while Josh clowns around. What else would a brother do?
Andrea and the kids were at Grandpa and Grandma's on her birthday, so we celebrated her 29th, uh yeah, her 29th birthday a day late.
Loren had a sleep over to celebrate her quinceaños. Here from left to right is Loren, Katie Rummery, Veronica, Donna, Michelle Paap, Kimberly Newman and Elizabeth Paap.

My friend of many years, Bill Glick, got married to his long time friend and only recently discovered love of his life on July 4th. I had the privilege of both standing up at their wedding and singing two songs. The wedding was a great event, and it was heart warming to see them so happy. The reception afterward was a little damp, but everyone still had a great time.
This is the sand ceremony from the Glick wedding on July 4, 2009. It features Tim Brooks and Jim Barlow performing the song “The Way of Love” by Charlie Peacock and Tom & Nicole Schaer reading 1 Corinthians 13 from the NIV, NLT, and Message translations.
