I have apparently lagged WAY behind in my posting. I’ll have to do a broad sweep of a few post updates so that we can get caught up again!
Kiwi Crates (I’m getting to the point of being over these, but every time they arrive the boys are thrilled! I just want to enjoy them for a month and then not have boxes lying around the house…sigh):
We had our dear missionary friends over for dinner while they were in town. You’ll recognize them as friends we stayed with when we were in Germany. It was SO good to catch up with them again and to hear how the Lord is on the move in their lives. It was also lots of fun to recall funny memories from our early days of dating and marriage as they were mentors of ours from the beginning of our dating lives. =)
Here are some shots from every day life around here. They include quite a few pictures of boys reading out loud (still doing their Read Aloud Challenge every month this year) to various people.
And a few from homeschooling, including pictures of Ethan working on his big Faces and Places presentation about Alexander the Great. He had to read his 5 paragraph essay in front of the community and he did a great job! You’ll also see some pictures of the boys either reading or listening to books because we’ve started a new habit of reading for 20 minutes any day that Daddio is out of town. It gives me a little break and shows them that reading is an important and fun part of all of our days. =)
More to come in this whirlwind update of the past two months.
