Comments: Hello all!!  Things have been fairly busy the last several years. I graduated from the University of Illinois with a Masters in Business Administration in early 2004 and got married that same year. We've recently purchased a home in East Peoria.  (It's amazing how you can travel the globe and end up right back where you started.)  I now work for Caterpillar as an Accountant and run a small business out of our home. We do not currently have any children; just Mocha Jo, our little dog.  Hope all is well!!

So I praying that that will come threw.

My boys Payton is 7 (9-11-99) and Kaiden is 21 months (10-12-05). Jaxon (9-07-03 - 11-26-03) now has been gone for almost four years now. I still miss him dearly. Now I am awaiting what the rest of my life holds...hopefully something good will finally arrive soon. (Updated: 07/2007)

Comments: Hey everyone. I hope that you are all doing quite well. I am living in the St. Louis area with my family. My wife (Kelly) and I have three girls (Lydia, Sami, Abigail) and they keep us pretty busy. It is a blast being a dad and our youngest is almost through with diapers...I can't wait!

Professionally, I set out to become a pastor. So I graduated from Bible college and went ahead and got my Masters in Theology too. We spent about a year and a half ministering to college students at the University of Arizona before settling down in St. Louis. I now am a lab tech for Missouri American Water. It is interesting to see life's twists and turns. But I know that God is faithful and I am trusting Him all the way!

Jeremiah 29:11 says that God knows the plans that He has for each one of us. Plans to bless us and not harm us. I am willing to take Him at His word. Are you? May God richly bless you.

Comments: Hello Everyone! So much has changed since I last posted
a profile so I figured that I should update everyone. I got divorced in
May of 2005 (Yeah!). I have since found a wonderful man and we have
been together for almost two years. Our house is always busy with four children and a dog running around.

Andrew is in 2nd grade and is very active in sports (baseball, football and basketball), Allison will be starting kindergarten next year! She also loves dance and tumbling class. Patricks daughters are also with us, Kayla is four and loves going to dance, and Megan is two (definitely the trouble-maker!). I am currently working as an RN in a family medical office so that I can be home for all of the kids activities. Outside of sports and dance with the kids, I am on the board of directors for Metamora JFL and am a co-chair for the PTO Chili Supper in Germantown. Look forward to seeing everyone again in a couple of months!! (Updated: 02/2008)

On my Junior year at University of Illinoisat Springfield in Criminal Justice.  I attend classes at ICC East Peoria Campus.  Plan to graduate in May 2008 (it's a three year cycle unless I drive to Springfield). Don't know if law school is in my future or not.  More school!?!  I am an assistant manager at Petsmart in Peoria.  Vet school was definitely my calling.  Too late, now.  My roommate and I own our own zoo; we like animals of the reptilian sort, including 15 snakes, 8 lizards, and two tortoises, as well as two dogs, two rats, and a couple of fish tanks.  Keeps us busy and out of trouble.  I would like to hear from some of you guys; you can call, email, or stop by to see me at work.  See you at the reunion.

Comments: Time for another update! (4/08) I am living right outside of Joliet, IL with my husband (Chris) and 2 little girls (ages 4 and 2).  Chris works as an accountant for CAT and I get to stay at home with my kids - it is great :) I am enjoying life and having fun seeing my kids grow up. I can't believe that I almost have a school age child! We are pretty excited right now because we just found out that we are going to be having a little boy, due Aug 1st. The sad part is that it is right at the time of our reunion, so I probably won't get to come. I was really looking forward to seeing everyone, but I hope you all have a great time!
