Mikal Derek Steven
My oldest son, Mikal, turned 21 in December and as you can see he has two middle names. He was a couple of days old when the nurses kept pressuring me for a middle name to complete the birth certificate. I couldn't come up with one, then I came up with two and could not decide between them. When I later looked them up in a baby name book I found they mean nearly the same thing! Derek means 'ruler' and Steven means 'crowned one'. Cool, no?
You see him pictured here with his girlfriend, Amy. They have been a couple for 4 ½ years now. Amy graduated from tech school (architectural) this past spring and Mikal has now started tech school (IT). They live about 45 minutes from us so we don’t see them as much as we’d like.
I think they’ll make some pretty cute grandkids when they get around to that. ;) These photos were taken last month, but we took some really cool ones over the summer if you're interested.
