We're Getting A Son

It's been a long time coming.  27 years to be more exact, but we are finally adding a son to the family.  Just under 60 days from now he will officially join the Young family.
Crystal & Stacy
With our first two children being girls we would often be asked when we were going to have a son.  My reply was usually "anything a boy can do, my girls can do as well."  Through their years growing up, they did get to do both pink and blue jobs.  Household chores along with outside chores.  They learned how to throw a ball, fix a fence, drive the truck and trailer, along with taking ballet, piano lessons, and kitchen duties.

Rob probably would have liked to watch less "chick flicks" but his girls did learn to love hockey, horse back riding and cattle.  Now that the teams are balancing out more, he is glad to have another male on the team. 
Our new son Jon
Jon will join our family on April 7 when he marries Crystal.  Rob will get to teach him  about hockey and Jon will do the teaching where basketball is concerned.  He like race cars and Hereford cattle and even knows how to fish.

We are very much looking forward to having a son.  Welcome to the family Jon.
