One of Many Family Pictures this Year


Names from left to right
Top Row: Josiah, Nick, Ally, Myself and Zachary.
Middle Row: Addy, Emma, Belle and Alex.
Bottom Row: Mom, Ben, Prissy and Dad.
PS: The reason some of us are looking the other way is because their where two people taking pic's at the same time. Also the reason Zach has his bottle in his mouth instead of looking at the camera is that as we walked to the wall to take the pic he fell and cut his lip (don't worry that's normal:-)

Meetings Coming Up

Well we've been a little busy these past few weeks and it is going to get going even faster these coming weeks. We went to the Apple Orchard in Louisburg, KS and we had a great time. They have the greatest apple cider donuts there and I got some really good Coffee Toffee. They also had old style Root beer there and it was REALLY good. Our grandma came with us and as I said we had a great time. The Orchard is only 20 Minutes from our house and Louisburg cider is sold all over the country. When you go you can also watch them make the cider (we used to go when I was little and back then they used all the old tools to make it but now most of it is done by machine).

We will be headed for Nebraska this week and get home Wednesday night at around 12:00 at night and then my dad has to fly to California for a meeting at 6:00 AM. Then we go to Fort Scott, Kansas for a Missions conference and then the next week we leave for Pennsylvania for a week and then we are done for the year (except for a couple of local meetings).

Also they moved the Baby's due date to December 18th (my mom's B-Day). Also Nick's birthday was two weeks ago (can't believe it's been that long) and he turned 18 and then Addy's B-Day is coming up on October 26. So everything is running I guess kinda normal for this time of year although the Christmas spirit is starting to come over me:-)

Hello!

Sorry I haven't written in so long. We have had a busy month--started school, done meetings and hosted a party for the church we attend.

I do have pic's from the party we did and I will try to post them ASAP.

Our household schedule has started and we now get up at 5:00am to start school...so I'd better get to bed. ;-)

School

Hello!

Well things have been pretty dead around here as we prepare to get everything for this year's school scedule ordered and ready to start.

I have calculated that I will be graduating in the class of 2011. I have thee option to finish next year in the class of 2010 but I decided to go ahead and (since I am only 15) do as much extra stuff as possible. With the exception of math and history, I'm almost finished with high school anyway, and I can finish the math and history stuff by 2011 as I said. So that means I am now in my Junior year of High School (which as you know is 11th grade:-)

A Lesson from my Devotions

Hello,

Well today I wanted to share with you a lesson in my devotions I learned. The guy that wrote the devotional told a story about one time after he finished working on a house he decided to take all the scrap wood over to his brother's house because his brother heated his house with a wood stove.

Well after he grabbed the wood he decided to just lay down for ten minutes before he went and when he woke up it was 2 hours later. He said he kept telling himself what a sloth he was and how he never thought he would be a good sevent for God and have a diligent attitude. Well he said he kept saying those kind of things to himself all the way to his brother's house. And then as he got there he knocked on the door and he brother answered the door.

As he entered he saw his brother's wood stove door open and a ton of papers smoldering. "You came just in time" his brother started. "I couldn't get this fire to start". They put the sraps of wood and instantly the fire lit. Then he said "Consider If I had came 2 hours before, it would not have seemed as if God had provided the wood for my brother's fire just as he needed it". So the lesson goes on to say that while we should care when we over sleep or etc., he said he should have asked God to help him to be more diligent and ask for his forgiveness and then forget about it. If we dwell on the wrong things we do the whole time we will be very discouraged and if we are discouraged it is hard to try and make ourselves better servants of God.
