Prayer request

I'd like to ask you all to keep Gary (and Isaac Ferrier) in your prayers. Work has been extremely slow. Recently they changed the way they pay the mechanics. They were getting paid hourly. Now they're on flat rate...If there's no work in the shop, you don't get paid. There have been many days in these last 6 weeks that the guys have sat around all day waiting for work to come in the shop so they could get some hours on their paycheck. Some guys have had as little as 40 hours on an 80 hour … [Continue reading]

Cutting teeth=Misery!

So for quite a few weeks now, Erik has been grumpy, clingy, fussy, cranky... Any and every adjective associated with cutting teeth!

So much fun!Unfortunately, my camera battery died (why didn't I … [Continue reading]

For those of you who do not know, we have started homeschool! I have been doing a Kindergarten curriculum with Logan, and Brooke joins us when she feels like it (which so far has been every time.) So far, things have gone extremely well, and both kids ask every morning if we are doing school today. The kids are learning lots of new things and are excited to show of their daily activities to dad when he gets home from work. So far we've learned about the days of Creation, when God created the … [Continue reading]
