Grandson and number ten… the garden continues to grow! I am so happy to announce the birth of a new grandson! Jill and I would like to welcome Jace David Carlson into our family and wish him prosperity, health, and happiness throughout his life. He is a perfect and handsome boy weighing in at 6 pounds 9 ounces and measuring 19.0 inches in length.
Jace was born on Friday, June 10, 2015, at 1:21 p.m. at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center located in Provo, Utah. Jace is the second child of my third son James and his wife, Alyse. With much gratitude to God, on our part, baby and mother are doing exceptionally well.
Jace is our tenth grandchild and sixth grandson. Enjoy the pics above and below!
My hopes and prayers for Jace
I hope that as you grow Jace, you will keep your eyes open and look for the surprises that life has to offer. If you don’t, you will miss most of the excitement.
Also, when challenges come your way–and they do every day–you will appreciate them. By facing these difficulties, you will become stronger, more capable, and wiser than you were the previous day. When you do make a mistake, learn from it and move on.
Most importantly, though… never give up! Winners never quit and are always persistent in their endeavors to the end. I pray that you will always face life with everything you have to offer and give it your best efforts and in return, life will give its best back to you in a commensurate measure.
