Father

I can’t believe I get to be the daddy of these two fine kids. “Lord, Please don’t let me mess it up. Give me wisdom and them forgiving hearts.”

Chelsea is beautiful, inside and out.  Chelsea Taylor Vincent, our first child, was born on August 10, 1993.  She played varsity softball and soccer for her high school and sang in the school’s chamber choir, winning several state competitions.  She is a full-time student at Lone Star College, and was recently elected president of both her Honors Program and Phi Theta Kappa.  She plans to apply to Rice University and University of Houston in the fall and would like to pursue a Bachelor’s in Music.  Chelsea understands the value of eduction and is committed to continuing her studies through master’s and doctoral degrees.  Chelsea is a scholar in the making. The first picture is at the home of her best friend, Ashley. Chelsea and I spent a summer on an archaeological dig in Israel with my seminary and the Israel Antiquities Authority. The second picture is of Chelsea (age 14) entering the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem.

Noah is all boy – an elite athlete, avid outdoorsman, and prankster. Noah Jackson Vincent, our second child, was born May 7, 1998. He plays baseball (see my Baseball Coach page) and football as a receiver and defensive end. He loves classic cars and has his own 1969 Cutlass convertible, with a 455 rocket engine. We are restoring it together (see my Classic Car Collector page), along with my 1965 Thunderbird convertible (think Thelma and Louise). Noah would like to attend McPherson College for a graduate degree in Automotive Restoration after he earns his bachelor’s in engineering. A classic car shop is in his future! The second picture is from when he and I took a father-son trip to Disney World in 2005.
