Happy Birthday Kaitlyn !

Kaitlyn - Michelle
"Pure - Gift of God"
Where there ever truer words spoken of anyone?

our gift of God

"She has consecrated herself to her Lord. She is purity, loveliness, and beauty. She is sober, yet has a girly sense of humor. She is sweet, but will tolerate little nonsense (thank my Dad for that one). She is feminine and modest..."
to add to the words of your big sister Keri
I will say... "all together lovely"

Diving Deep into The Past !




The mail came, and oh what wonderful things came in it!

I'm so excited about our World View/World History choices for the fall. What riches we will find marinating in these wonderful materials. I am so thankful to the Lord for these lectures, documentaries, and movies.

Getting glimpses into the lives of ordinary people, who yielded themselves to God and were used to fulfill His providence in His-story!
I know it will be a blessing.

It's a Girl!



They say "sugar & spice, and every
thing nice"
I say ribbons & lace
a girl brings such grace!


How great is our God to give us such a treasure,
she, so sweet & so delicate
will be loved beyond measure!
-Nona




We are very excited to learn that Keriann and Casey are expecting a little girl in November. We certainly waited overtime for the confirmation. I can finally start my blanket and other little things. It will be fun to see how the boys react to their new little sister, I'm sure she will bring out the best of the boy in them!
