8 years ago.....

Eight years ago at 7:04PM we welcomed our first child into our family ..........
Dillon Hesterman - 1 day old
Dillon from the very beginning you have been a very head strong child....You refused to go to sleep without a fight many, many, many, many days and nights for about the first 7 months of your life.  It was a challenge for us as new parents, but I feel like this characteristic will help you out later on in life.  You are also such a mature little man!  You think very wise way beyond your years.......At times we have a hard time remembering you are just a child. 

Evil Knievel costume
You enjoy helping out on the farm; that is, when it's your idea.....Other times you'd rather be climbing trees, and annoying your little sis...The typical older brother things.

Feeding Sprocket
You have such a tender heart, and for that I am truly grateful.  God has really blessed our family with you, and I thank Him for it every day!

Yes, he is really cutting the grass and
No we aren't irresponsible parents.  Shane
rode with him and showed him how to maneuver
and let him have it out in a wide open area. 
Happy 8th birthday Dillon!  I love you very much!
