Honestly, I completely lack computer skills.
You would think I could do anything,
just because I am married to a man who does
amazing things with the computer. Instead I find
myself with high expectations and less than desired
results with my ability. Here is the newsletter I wrote.
Too bad you can't click on it to enlarge it to read.
I am sure Shaun could fix this, but in matters of priorities,
this is not going to make the list, so I either not post it or I
can just be creative with my frustrations.
So I will just cut and paste most of it.
kindergarten. His teacher says he is well behaved and
on task at school. He is friendly and helps others. He
also started soccer this year. It was neat to watch him
play and see the game begin to click inside his head.
One week he learned the art of stealing the ball and
roceeded to take the ball from everyone, including
his teammates. Luckily, we fixed that issue and all
seemed to have a great time anyway. Matthew is also
a avid learner. He comes home and WANTS to do
homework. It is not unusual to see him trying to read
a book well beyond his ability. To him nothing is
impossible and so I watch and am always amazed.
Little A. is now in 3rd grade and loving it. Math
and science are some of her favorite subjects at
school. She keeps herself busy with piano lessons
from Grandma, activity days with church, and
running around with mom to everyone else’s
activities. She is also hoping to start violin in
January. She loves to help everyone at home.
Whatever hobby someone is doing, there you
will find Abigail. Whether it is soccer, running,
crafting, yard work, or cooking, she is always
willing to help out.
cross-country for the second year in a row and
tennis last spring. She is also helping her dad
and coach create their own off road cross country
course. We have found she can clear blackberries
with great determination. She loves to craft and
has pretty much taken over her mother’s crafting
supplies. She also this last fall developed her own
line of craft stamps. Check her out at
www.SweetAnnaBee.com. Aside from her crazy
busy life, she is always willing to lend a hand and
is a great help to her family.
takes each day as it comes. Some days are hard
on him pain wise, others somewhat better. Even
in pain, he has determined to not let it define him.
He has taken up spearheading the running/walking
path in our community. It is something our
community and schools lack and he has dreamed
of doing this for quite a while now. Thankfully he
is recruiting volunteers for the labor and we hope
all will be up and ready by summer.
clean. I am cheering on the sidelines. Trust me, I
am plenty busy with all of the kids’ activities and
yet I loving every minute of it. It seems the days
are flying by and all too soon these wonderful children
will be gone. For now, I am cherishing today
(even the mountains of laundry that comes with
these wonderful people I get to share my life with).

Christ is at the center of our celebration.”
