My son is a freshman and plays for a school that let's homeschoolers play on the team. He is actually a starter on varsity and is having a good year. He is the second leading scorer on the team and led the team in scoring last game. He's a very good player! His season is coming to a close as well.
Our soon to be 16 year old daughter Hannah is working on her second book! She is such a talented writer. Her first book got accepted to be published and we are working on getting it completed within a few months. I will post a link once it is published. She is so excited as are we. God has given her an incredible gift of writing.
With all of the hustle and bustle of youth groups, sleep overs, homeschooling, co-ops and games, I wouldn't have it any other way! God has blessed us with such a beautiful family and we are excited for our new baby coming in August! The Bible says in Psalm 127:3-5 (KJV):
Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
We have truly been blessed! Although we are very excited about our new little baby coming in August, Janel is really struggling with sickness with this pregnancy. But I think that comes with being in your 40's and being pregnant. Most of our other pregnancy's have been very smooth. Not much sickness and quick labors. This one is taking a toll on Janel. Please pray for her! She is such a great wife and mother.
We are looking forward to Spring and Summer. I love being outside and doing stuff or just sitting on the back deck and listening to the peepers or fires and outdoor movies. We are usually the hosts most weekends to lots of kids and other families. It is a true blessing to be surrounded by so many good family and friends who love the Lord! It makes life fun!
Speaking of outdoor movies....we usually host outdoor movies at least twice a month in the summer. I have a 10 foot screen and projector and we have a great time. And we just purchased a large popcorn machine! It arrived last week and we actually made a quick video breaking it in....you can check it out below. We are looking forward to putting it to use this summer for movie nights! If you're in the area, come join us! Always family friendly.
