I think I have been running full speed since April or was it March?
Here are some of the highlights.
Sophia's Dance recital.
Malaina won State with the Starlights.
We've taken numerous rides on the Pumpkin Vine.
Once with friends over spring break. Several times with the kids on a weekend night... And this past weekend Jason's Brother Al his wife Alma and their kids were here so we took them on it.
Here is Sophia and her teacher Mrs. Troyer.
We went to the lake with some friends but I didn't have my camera along:( the kids had a RIOT
inter-tubing and knee boarding.
And of course Baseball.
Here's the clan on the morning of the last day of school.Jalen played tennis again this spring. Here he is with his good friend Seth.
Micah finished another year of Piano. Here he is at his recital with his great teacher Kay.She has taught all but the little one Piano. Last fall I asked Malaina to teach Sophia so I didn't have one more place to run. She has done a wonderful job! In fact it started up a little business for her and she now has 7 students.
Micah has shown a lot of determination this year in learning new instruments along with continuing to be a great piano player. He had the opportunity to play banjo in an American idol contest his school had along with playing guitar and piano in spring concerts.
We took Memorial Day and headed to South Haven. One of my favorite little towns along Lake Michigan.
Jalen graduated 8th grade. He ended up on the Honor Roll with awards for his AR points. He has finished Middle School Strong! Our hearts are smiling as we see the big strides he has taken to excel academically this year! He will be leaving and attending a Private School next year as well. We are looking forward to watching as God orders his steps and leads him through High School.
And Then Just on a side note...WE STARTED BUILDING our house!
It was so amazing to see the first strip of top soil moved. After all these years of waiting to realize a dream being fulfilled is very rewarding.
Several days later the foundation was poured.
On top of all this I finished the year in the Lunch room and God has allowed me to get a new job that I started yesterday. I will be working at women's clinic as an imaging assistant. When I think of the blessing of this job I am just in awe of how God leads where we don't even dream to go. I will be glad when the training is over. But I am looking forward to the future.
So life has been just a bit busy.
But it's good.
I am blessed.
