Do you want to guarantee yourself a good day? Then go hang out with these three. . . Hannah, Joe, and Rachel. We met this morning down at Forest Park's Grand Basin, and as we walked from the car back to where we shot these, Hannah told us that this was where their Dad proposed to their Mom, "before it was all beautiful". Nice going, Dad. It certainly is beautiful now, and even more so with these three in the picture.
I was fortunate enough to have Hannah in my class, and she is simply one of the sweetest kids I know. She's a swimmer, class officer, and spoke at graduation. Rachel was the Missouri Girl's State Singles Champion in tennis and is as nice as she is talented. She's a humble superstar. Joe is also a heck of a tennis player and helped lead the Boy's Team to a 4th place finish in State this year. You guys are so easy-going and fun to be around. I'll really miss you, but I'll follow your exploits in college and beyond. Good luck Hannah (TCU), Joe (Truman) and Rachel (Mizzou).
