The Ringer Family at Grant Forest Preserve in Round Lake Beach, Illinois. Katie and Tyler are two of the coolest people we know. They love books, music, and games, and they both serve at our church every week. And since their son, Stryder, and our son, Ezra, are only three months apart, they’ve become buds, teaching each other any useful (read: mischievous) skills they happen to learn. For instance, Ezra taught Stryder how to steal toys from other babies, and so Stryder taught Ezra how to climb our baby gate. Before we know it, they’ll be picking locks and hot-wiring cars!
