It’s been a while since I posted, so I thought I’d give a quick update. Brian is plugging away at work… he’s such a trooper. Because we live close to where he works, he’s been riding his bike some to work and is in much better shape than I am when we go for family bike rides. Katie and the kids just finished up VBS at the church. The theme was The King is Coming. Everyday when I asked Elijah what his favorite part of VBS was, he said “eating lunch!” The “wee” ones (3 and under) learned that God created us in his image, we made the choice to disobey and sin against God, but God still loves us and sent his Son Jesus to die on the cross for us and take on our punishment for our disobedience. The best new though is that Jesus didn’t stay dead. He rose again and lives in heaven, where we can live as well if we ask Jesus to be Lord of our lives! The older kids learned 4 names of God: Jehovah Or (God is Light), Jehovah Shammah (God is There), Yaweh (God is Unchanging), and Jehovah Shalom (God is Peace). These kids learned through the story of Moses that God has a plan for his people that will be accomplished no matter what!
Abigail has about 6 teeth coming in right now… poor thing. She’s such a trooper though. She is really starting to talk. All the words sounds alike right now, but we know what she is trying to say. Her favorite words are dada, mama, baby, and juice!
Katie has been taking a cake decorating class as well as knitting up a storm. My sis in law and I have a small business making this and that for children and their parents. This hat is just one of the many things you can see if you check out http://www.sugarplumdelights.etsy.com.
Hope all is well with you!!!
