My Three Sons
I was married in 1985 at the age of 22. At 23 my son Garrett was born in Geneva Illinois. Garrett started proving what an athlete he was from his first steps at less than 9 months old. He could smack a pitched wiffle ball across the yard at 2, and at 4 we "snuck" him in the 5 & 6 year old soccer league. Little did we know this would set a path for Garrett for his life. Though he did play other sports, soccer was always, and still is his passion. Garrett is now 25 years old, handsome, and still in fantastic physical shape. He still plays soccer and works out. He graduated from NIU business college and works as a carpenter for his father. He can have very proper manners one minute, and be like my ten year old boy the next being a goof ball. Just the right mix!
My son Kyle was born next in 1987 after a move to Wilson, North Carolina, where we would live for 10 years. Kyle had a love for art as soon as he heard his first song, and held his first crayon. Through the years Kyle has expanded his love of arts to include acting, singing, playing guitar, stand up comedy, sketching, mixed media art, photography, and both acryic and oil painting. Kyle is now 24 and is currently in a semi-final competition in Seattle for RAW artist of the year. Kyle is a vegetarian, enjoys yoga and is an animal rights activist. He has a wicked sense of humor which he turned into a craft by attending Second City Comedy school in Chicago. He enjoyed doing some musical comedy while also attending Columbia College in the city for photography as well. He now resides in Seattle Washington with his darling girl friend Sarah and plans to continue his education there, while he works as a party planner.
Though my marriage to the boys Dad ended after 12 years, I will never regret those years. They brought the greatest blessings to me. Garrett, Kyle and Corey. My three sons!
