Back to the Blog

January 22nd?  Really?!  That's the last time I've blogged? anyway.  I've been blogging every week on our homeschool performing arts page.

So much has happened, but I'll catch you up on only a few things today.

Here are those ice skating pictures I promised a while back.
Lydia has come a long way!  She used to have to push a skating walker
around the rink.  Then she graduated to the wall.  Now she's independent!
(Too bad this building is getting ready for 4H horse stuff now.  The ice is gone.)

Jeffrey turned 14 years old a few weeks ago!

He likes Tic-Tacs, so I bought him a couple of 12-packs online.

We had our Awana Grand Prix last month, too.
 Samuel sanding his car.  He was really getting into it.
His whole body was twisting side-to-side.  = )

 Samuel & Lydia painting their cars
 Lydia's advice: "Samuel, don't guide the paintbrush. 
Let the paintbrush guide you."  The nut.

 The fam, minus myself (taking the picture) and Lydia, who was over... with her good friends.

 Samuel won 2nd place for speed!  He missed first place by 0.04 seconds.

 Lydia won first place for speed in the older kids' group!

And here are all of Dave's the kids' trophies from Awana Grand Prix past.

    1. Thanks! It's good to be back. I've been way too busy lately. I'm working on that, because having no margin in my life is not good for me or my family.

      I'm working on another blog post right now--with videos! I'm just waiting for them to upload to YouTube right now. So, check back soon!

  2. Samuel's loss was .004 seconds over four heats, so by Olympic standards it could have been a tie.
