Happy 15th Birthday Stephen!

The day has finally arrived and you can officially drive! Congrats on being the only Wissmann thus far to ace the driving test!! May you have many, many safe miles ahead of you. We're excited about this new responsibility in your life, and rejoice in the maturity and growth you've shown in the past year -- both bodily and spiritually. Your initiative and diligence in music practice, taking care of the upkeep of our yard, and enjoying the relationships of your brothers and sisters. We love you lots and hope you have a wonderful day! Happy driving!

Here are a few of Stephen's favorite things --

  • Sport -- Ultimate frisbee or volley ball
  • Vacation Spot -- Wyoming and Branson
  • Past time -- Working with wood.
  • Bible character -- Paul or OT Joseph
  • Fast food resturaunt -- Subway
  • Store -- Good question... any outdoor store... Scheels, Cabela's
  • Dessert -- My mom's ice cream cake.
  • Car -- Dodge Viper
  • Truck -- Dodge Cummins Diesel

"My eyes shall be on the faithful of the land,
That they may dwell with me;
He who walks in a perfect way,
He shall serve me."
Psalm 101:6

Happy birthday, Stephen, and we also wish you many hours of safe driving.
Fancy being able to drive at 15! Here(Spain), the kids have to wait till their 18th, and then pay a lot of money,normally between 700 and 1000 euros!

Happy birthday Stephen! :)

Hope you have a wonderful year. And a wonderful day :)
Have fun driving...I only have to wait a little over a year before I can drive, because here in the Upper Peninsula of MI where I live, I can start driver's ed at 14 yrs 8 mths and one month later I can drive anywhere as long as one of my parents is in the passenger seat! Yahoo! :D

Blessings to you!

Happy Birthday, Stephen. Hope it was good. We just got back from driving because we knew that we couldn't be on the road now for awhile because someone just got his drivers license. So, we did this driving marathon and boy was it exciting. Love ya.
