Family Update

28 04 2008

Our family is doing pretty good.  The kids are growing up faster than I would like for them to.  At times I feel like I just blinked and they are talking, walking and loving life.

Isaac is a fun, loving, very sweet 4 year old.  He starts tee-ball in about 6 weeks and is counting down the days!  He loves sports.  He is becoming such a compassionate child.  He loves being a big brother and thinks the world of Owen.  He is finishing his first year of homeschooling and so far so good.  He is reading fairly well for only being 4 years old and he is doing great in math.  We just finished place values and are moving on to addition, which he is awesome at!

Gracelyn is our princess.  Being wedged in between two brothers life can be busy.  She loves when we have a girl day and do our nails and go shopping.  She really loves being the “mommy” of Owen and takes great care of him.  She also did her first year of “school”, she loved doing craft time and “pretend” play time.  She is at the end of being two and will be turning three here very shortly.  It is hard to believe that! 

Owen is a fun loving 9 month old.  He has been crawling for over 3 months now and keeps us on our toes all day long.  He is pulling up and starting to cruise the furniture!  He is known as the “happy” baby at church.  He always has a smile on his face and has such a great temperament.  He was 17 lbs. 11 1/2 oz. and 27 3/4 inches long at 9 1/2 months.  He has weaned himself and it has been very hard on me.  You can read a post on that here if you would like.  Other than that he is so great.  He sleeps from about 7:30 til 6:30 every night, eats a bottle, then goes back to bed until 7:30.  It won’t be long and he will be going 12 hours straight for us.

Dave is finishing up at school and has finals next week!  He only has 5 classes left and then he will graduate in December.  God is so good.  We are getting excited about an opportunity that God has brought to us.  We are praying for His will in our lives.  We are selling our house next month and moving into an apartment for the remainder of our time here at Seminary.  This way we are able to move after graduation without trying to sell our home first.

I am busy with the kids and work.  I started waiting tables at night at Applebee’s.  I really enjoy it, but it is hard with three little ones at home.  I go in about 5 pm and get off about 12 am.  This way I am only away from the kids about 3 hours on the days I work.  They are in bed around 8 pm.  I am graduating from the Seminary Wives Institute on the 9th from the Seminary.

Things here have been good.  Please feel free to look around the blog if you haven’t visited before or in awhile.  You can click on a topic or you can just go down the page for some recent posts.  Enjoy!

(sorry to interupt!) 🙂 Just wanted to say that we miss you guys and its been too long since we’ve chatted. We are staying at my in-laws, Becky, that’s why there is no answer on our phone… I’ll send you that number. We’ll be here 2 more weeks.
