Saturday night - We rushed to Dave and Sara's house. We took over care of the big kids while Dave and Sara headed to the hospital.

Arthur David Nelson was born Saturday, March 5, 2016.

When they told us Arthur was here, knowing they were all exhausted and it was late at night, I offered to wait till morning to bring everyone up. When Dave said "that might be good," I started crying. Dave let Russ and me come meet him.

It surprised me how anxious I was to meet him. It did not surprise me how gracious Dave and Sara were. Thank you guys. I would say I would try to be more logical in the next situation, but we all know I can't do that.
