    "We can only take it as it comes." That is the best attitude for what is to come. Dad and I had a few 'standards' set up for raising our family before we started, and I am sure we have repeated them to you often enough. But other than those 3 'formed in concrete' rules, everything else was formed as the needs arose. Everything changes from child to child and situation to situation, but if you and Gray have a solid understanding on your 'absolutes' (like Dad and I had with our 3 No Compromise Rules) then it makes all the other decisions that will need to be made much easier. And we are certainly proud of how our three children have all become amazing adults. We praise God for the guidance He gave us when we accepted the responsiblity of raising each of you for Him!
