FUN WITH THE STOCKTON CREW

ALL HAPPY... EXCEPT FOR SWEET LITTLE ANNA:(

FUTURE MR. AND MRS. HINTZ... UH OH, LILY YOU MAY HAVE COMPETITION:)
We were so blessed the week before Greg's ordination to spend 3 different visits with our dear Texas friends the Stocktons. When Greg and I were first married and living in Texas, the Stocktons were our very dearest friends. We spent most weekends together, went on a cruise for our 5th anniversary and had some serious competition on the tennis court:)
Now, 9 kids later we still REALLY treasure our time together. We adults always laugh hysterically together and are so like minded in many BIG areas of life, so it makes our time together a real joy for us, not to mention that the kids have a blast and get along so well.
Mary stayed with us on her way up to St. Louis. She was here when we found out about our friends, the Hays, baby. Her parents are actually members of the Hays' church. We stayed with her and her parents when we went up for the funeral. Then she, Chris and the kids were able to come down for the ordination and stay with the Tiews . (Remember the Tiews are the family from the seminary that happened to be placed here in OK also. Lula was with us the day we had Samuel and such a godsend. They and the Stocktons were a part of our original small group bible study in Texas ) In a way it felt just like old times getting to see each other so often. What a treat.

Mary, thanks for the great laughs, wonderful talks, for listening and loving me through the journey we are on. It means SO much to me.
