We seem to have a busier year than ever. School started back up and there is alot more work to do with my son than there was last year. Plus our ministry is so important to us that we are trying to do as much volunteer work as we are able.
So far school is going well for Nick. He is holding A's and A+'s in all his classes so far. Also, Brittany should be done this year. She has only a few classes left and most of these are electives so they will go quickly. She is also going to sit in our our Spanish class with my son. This is good because she can help me in this area. We have quite a few spanish friends and Brittany is so quick at picking up languages so I know that she will probably be doing most of the teaching in this class. :-)
Aside from our school and ministry I also have work. There is only one day free each week that I am not either doing school or working and so that leaves little time for anything else. We also have a memorial for a friend who died in a week and then a baby shower the next week. We had a going away party for a family last week.
I am trying to make a afgan for the baby shower, but it is slow going, since I have to do it in my spare time. LOL Where that is, I don't know. As it is now, I get up at 4:30 or 5 every morning to get my Bible reading and study done and then get the kids up at 7 for a daily discussion of a Bible text to start our day. School starts at 8 and we are off to work in the afternoon. We try to get school done early in the week so that we have time for our ministry at the end of the week. So far this is working pretty good. As for the afgan, I am just going to have to make time or give it to her half done and let her know I will finish it before the baby comes.
Good thing I am using a chucky yarn and a big hook or it might take alot longer.
Well, I have to run, got lots to do today, but I wanted to write and let you all know what we are up to. Sorry it took so long to post.

July has been a very busy month. My brother moved to Arizona to be with his girls. We had a going away picnic for him. We have been extremely busy with helping others. A friend of ours is moving and we are helping him move this weekend. Last weekend we had a picnic up at my mom and dads. Lots of fun visiting my brother Shaun and his wife to be, Shayla, also my cousins Vince and Tami. I started a new job this month and am going to be starting another new one in August. Have our convention next weekend and the kids are gone camping this weekend. I know this paragraph is not what it should be, but I don't have the time to fix it. So, sorry for short sentences that really don't make a whole lot of sence. I will write more when I have time.

We have had such a busy winter. Between school, working and all the studying, and my ministry that I do, who has time to post anything. It is going to be a short one.
Nick is still getting A's and A+'s. Doing really well with Connections Academy. He is doing a Spanish class now too, and really is doing well. Home Life class is suppose to start soon too. That is one where they will get to make things. I know he will enjoy it.
We went on for a short cruise on a sternwheeler boat and had a great time. The kids got to go up with the Captain and pretend they were steering the boat. We all got some great pictures. They were wearing the captains hats too. It was really cute.
The picture above is of Nick and Marissa just before we got on the boat. Marissa really loves Nick. Nick I think has the same feeling for her or he wouldn't tolerate her as much as he does. LOL
Aren't they just cute!
Well, that is it for now. I will try to post at least a little bit each week and keep you up to date.
