So, I am going to figure things out and will be back the first of the year. I know many of you who live far away appreciate the photos of the kids and like to hear how we are doing here in Indiana.....and I would love to continue to share our lives with you. It helps me feel somehow connected to my friends and family who we only see a few times a year. And I know how fast my kiddos grow!
All is well with us here. Jared is looking forward to this semester being over. He will take a few days off before we head back to PA for Christmas. He enjoys his job, but misses being in the lab doing the science he loves. Teaching takes up alot of time.....so he is looking forward to the spring where he hopes to be doing experiments as well as some much needed writing. I always tell the kids what a great Daddy they have. He can have a really stressful day at work and come home and be able to pour out love on all of us. I know that it is God's grace to us. I am thankful for my husband everyday.
The kids are enjoying this season, getting ready for Jesus' birthday. We went to the tree farm last week and got our tree and the kids had a blast decorating it. We made a couple of different homemade "kid" ornaments last year, and Jared wants this to be a yearly tradition. So we will be making an ornament this weekend. They are all still loving on baby Adam. The novelty of having a newborn, has not worn off....they are still always holding, kissing and talking to their baby brother. It's hard to believe that this little guy will be 8 wks. old on Monday. We've kept school light since the baby was born, but look forward to getting back into the swing of things in January.
And as for me, I am loving being at home taking care of my family. I am still learning how to be a better wife to my husband and a better mother to my children. I love Jared and our kids so very much, and truly am thankful to be experiencing the challenges and joys of life with them. God has blessed us with such a wonderful church family here, giving us so much love and support as we are on this journey. We are very excited for our church Sing Along this Friday, lead by The Good Shepherd Band.
I hope you all have a beautiful Christmas this year, celebrating the glorious birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. We are praying for hearts and lives to be changed, hoping for people to put their trust in Him.
I will send out my new blog address to those of you who enjoy checking in on us from time to time. And I will most likely always link my posts up to face book, where many of you link from.
In the meantime here is a link to Noah's blog.....Lego Land He will be posting on a regular basis I am sure. You will be able to catch a glimpse of life with us.....and those of you who know us well....there is never a dull moment.....and I wouldn't have it any other way!
