Covenant Seminary Graduation

Covenant Seminary's Graduation was May 18th. It's hard to believe so many of our close friends are now spread out around the country doing ministry! Here are a few pics of the event...

Danny, Andy, & John

The Trifecta will now be living in different cities for the first time in about 7 years! Danny, Aspa, & Coleman are in Charleston, SC doing RUF. John & Kate are sticking around St. Louis for a while - YAY!

Part of the Crew - the Porters, the Clarks, the Woods, & the Earlys

Couldn't resist posting these...Uncle Andy with his favorite Porter. Look at those big blue eyes!

Eric Ashley's Graduation Party

Eric and Annette threw a graduation party/concert so that Eric could play one more time with people that he's played with throughout his time at Covenant.

The Band

Andy has truly enjoyed playing with Eric over the past 3 years...they make a great guitar & mandolin combo!

Andy, Amy, Annette, & Eric

We met Eric & Annette at orientation during our first couple days in St. Louis. They're off to a church in Macon, GA. We will really miss them!

Measuring Small...Growing Big

We had the privilege last week of having another ultrasound and getting to see our son! According to the measurements of my belly, the doctor says I am "measuring small" - about 3 weeks behind where I should be. So, he wanted to do another ultrasound to make sure the boy was growing okay. Well, Junior weighed in at a healthy estimated 5 lbs. 4 oz. - which I think is PLENTY big enough! Especially since we still have about 6 weeks to go! He's just all crammed in there. Since it was more of a quick ultrasound just to check on the weight, we didn't really get any good pictures. But, he has a precious profile, a strong heartbeat, and we cannot wait to meet him! Thanks for your prayers for this you can pray that he doesn't grow too much between now and the end of June :)

Baby Wood Surf Shower

Some fabulous friends in St. Louis threw Baby Wood a shower - with a Surfer Boy theme, of course! We had a great time. It is truly wonderful to be in such a supportive community, surrounded by so many women in the same stage of life.

The decorations...

Opening presents...

Georgia (she's 4) helped me open everything. She has a little brother, so had great advice for me on how to take care of baby boys.

A Cardinals onesie made by Ami Anderson. I think he'll be wearing this home from the hospital!

Andy's mom brought some of Andy's baby clothes to pass down, complete with pictures of Andy in them! They were obviously a big hit.

On our way to the shower (me & Andy's mom)

Anna Porter & Me

Ami, Leigh, Kami

Georgia & Jessie

We are so tired of smiling...

How many pregos can you fit in a room? There were actually 7 at the shower, but 2 left before we could get the picture. We're all due between now and September! Now you can see what I mean about having so many people in the same stage of life...
