Today is a very special day.  On March 25th, 1988, I officially became a sister.  God gave me a wonderful brother.  And that's an understatement. 

I don't have any baby pictures of Will, but I vividly remember what he looked like as a baby...E.T.  

I know you won't believe that when you see how cute he turned out a couple of years later... 

Don't you see the resemblance? 

Will loved tractors.  Grandpa and Grandma Ohms even sent him a little John Deere tractor that we used to play on.

I have so many wonderful memories of playing with Will.  He made things like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Ghost-busters fun.  Of course, that was after I forced him to spend the majority of our time playing house, Boxcar Children, and making him follow along as I read aloud from our story books.

Will was always so easy-going and kind...

even when I was bossy and mean.  

God knew just what kind of brother I needed... 

someone who would love me, even on days when I was crabby.

Will was always ready for fun...

and through his example, I've learned to worry less about what could happen.  (Remember what happened after we ate these?)

Will and I are very different in many ways (ex. journals of our trip out west :),

 but our relationship has taught me to see the beauty in differences...

And it's taught me a lot about love.

(I'm sorry that our relationship hasn't taught me more about photo editing...)

I'm so thankful for all of the happy memories we share.

I love you, Will!  I hope you know how much I treasure our relationship. 


Love, Laramie (& Jamie) :)
