Is This Thing On?

Tap, tap, tap. Is this thing on?
Phew... life has been zipping along and where have I been?
A few days ago I was thinking about my sweet friend that lives in Ohio, Janet. Janet and Peter lived across the street from us when we lived in Ohio and they were the Best Neighbors Ever. In last year's Chirstmas card she told me how she kept up with us on our blog. And it occurred to me that she must think we have fallen off the edge of the earth! Janet, we are still here and I will give you a quick update! I hope all is well with you.

Chris is still loving the life of pastor. Nothing really new there, but he is a steady and sure kinda guy. And a great pastor. :)

Aaron is 9. He is in the fourth grade. I have decided that fourth grade is the year of more homework. He loves Lego and has started to listen to music like a teenager. "Country music," he says.

David is almost 8. His newest thing is that he loves science experiements. He even has refused a hair cut so that he can look like a mad scientist. A few weeks ago he was making his own toast (I was folding laundry) when he tells me, "Mom, the toast didn't pop, so I used two forks to get it out." AGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH! Don't do that or you will have mad scientist hair!!

Sam is 6 and he is loving sports. The boys just finished a season of basketball today. Of all the boys, he loved it the most.

I'm doing just fine. I've gone back to work. I'm teaching k-4 at the Lutheran school where the two older boys go.

Pretty busy, if you ask me. I'm really tired, and our house is a zoo, but we are good!

I'm so glad to know that you are still around. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving words of encouragement. While I believe that God is totally in control, (and yet I still feel shaky at times) it is so nice to hear those words of affirmation from sister-believers.
Miss you and your bloggy posts. Thanks for praying.

Time can really fly, especially when you are crazy busy :)

So glad to hear from you again! I, too, miss your posts. Went to "our" blog's all dusty and cobwebby. Let's catch up after the weekend!

K-4 - surely music or art or something and not everything, huh? You are a brave lady. I've considered going back to teaching, but think it would lead to way too much stress to be around kids all day and then get home to my own for the evening.
We're cleaning house for Christmas decor too - blessings to you for a wonderful season!
