And this year, even while I was sick, our family life went on. It had too! And God in His infinite goodness allowed us some wonderful memories mixed in with the ups and downs!
Here are some glimpses back. Some reasons why I get out of bed every morning, no matter how I feel.
We hosted two Japanese students over Christmas break and showed them an American Christmas! We love you, Rina and Natsumi!
We went to a few basketball games. . .and scrimmages, and practices. And let’s just say we watched some basketball. Number one son loves him some ball!
We celebrated all five! of our birthdays—complete with gf cakes and lovely cupcakes. Thank you Green Goodies by Tiffany! This party included ice skating with girlfriends.
We spent Easter Sunday at Quartz Mountain State Park. We met my sister’s family there after church for a late picnic lunch. The boys are not in the pics because they were too busy climbing mountains! Such a beautiful place. . .
We had end-of year chorus and band concerts—and this outdoor Arts Festival concert where youngest daughter played the drum-set. I love the look on her face!
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5
