Everyone, meet the Armlin family: Chet, Angel, Isaac and Brady. Without going into too much detail for you: the Tate’s have quite the history with the Armlins. I was 19 when I met them and became their nanny. The next 4-5 years for me would be spent playing lots of hide and seek, enduring tons of ball fights, building many forts, reading many books, cleaning up lots of …fluids (it was a glamorous job), and cuddling two precious little boys. Y’all… I wouldn’t trade that time for the world. Robert and I love this family, a lot.


The smallest Armlin that you see in these pictures? Yep, he was 8 months old when I met him (he’s now 6). The little bit bigger Armlin was 2 (now 8), and the elder Armlins… I won’t say how old they were. (You’re welcome.)


In all seriousness though, what a family. This verse comes to mind, “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6). Simply put, Chet and Angel are all about instilling unwavering values in their boys: a Biblical worldview, family, integrity, sacrificial love, grace. They choose as a family to celebrate big things and little things, milestones and little moments, whether perfect or imperfect. I’m not sure that I can think of a more admirable trait to find in a family.
