Counting Our Blessings from 2013

Counting our Blessings
2013 in NUMB3RS

Glen and I celebrated 20 years of marriage in December
Spencer is 19 months in remission from leukemia
With Emma's 13th birthday in October, we became parents to 3 terrific teenagers
Ellie turned 8 and was baptized a member of our church
I pulled the youngest 2 kids out of school to be homeschooled
We logged 3000+ miles this summer on a road trip to Boston, Acadia NP, PEI, and Quebec City
Lara has the privilege of spending time each week with 26 fabulous young women at church
We join with 5 other families to participate in a fun, educational homeschool co-op that is the key to mine and the kids' sanity this year
Cami left us for 2 weeks at Christmastime to help build houses in Mexico
We spent about 6 weeks without a kitchen, while ours got stripped down to the studs and rebuilt (we still need to paint and refinish the floors)
Glen gets to be the song leader for  100+ primary children each week
Cami is taking 3 AP classes which is about equal to the number of hours she sleeps each night
Emma finished the 6th grade and graduated from elementary school
We finally replaced the deck that sent Glen to the hospital last year to get 7 stitches
Adam won 1st place in the pinewood derby and went on to place 4th in districts
We consider the friendship and love of family and friends to be among our most PRICELESS blessings!



Happy New Year!!!!

"We turn with hope...to Him who walked the dusty paths of villages we now reverently call the Holy Land, to Him who caused the blind to see, the deaf to hear, the lame to walk, and the dead to live. To Him who tenderly and lovingly assured us, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life'(John 14:6)."
