This photo was taken at the baptism of our three youngest: Chloe (Ellie and Evan), Tatum (Josie Hlava and Kevin Deutsch of the Hacienda del Sol), and Alexis "Lexi" (Tyler and Stephanie Saylor)). We saved a ton of money on rental fees by waiting to baptize all three children at once. Seriously, it was a great day with deep meaning for all of us.
Here's the whole crew, including pastor Loren Nelson, a scholar, activist, and gentleman.
Mark Cohn, one of my favorite singer/songwriters, wrote the above lyrics about his father. In the song, Silver Thunderbird, a moving tribute to his father, Cohn describes how his father quietly sacrificed for his children, working long hours while taking pride in his good ol' Silver Thunderbird.
