I had the privilege of attending the Air Force commissioning of a dear, dear friend. The Carlson family has known me, since before I was born/adopted!! My childhood is filled with memories of GI Joe's & pricker forts, Free Willy & Angels in the Outfield. East Asheville Baseball & the pool all summer. "Fat & Skinny" cheetos wrestling, peanut butter & honey sandwiches before kindergarten. I am beyond blessed to have this family (and MANY others) in my life, for my whole life. I have never moved (well, from across town when I was two...doesn't count...), we all live within a couple miles of each other, and we've been in the same church, school, community. This is how I want to raise my children. It really does take a village to raise a family, and having a constant community of believers and encourage-rs is wonderful! Haw Creek, you are special. Please save me a house, preferably withing 0.5 miles of my parents....!
Here are several images from Andrew's "Crowning" - really, his commissioning, but I could never remember what it was called..... Oops!

|Daniel "swore in" Andrew - I'm not going to lie, I had a baby tear in my eye|
|Everyone who came! Such fabulous friends and family.|
|The Haw Creek Boys! Minus a few!|
Love you, sweet Carlson Family!
