Well it's been such a long time. Computer problems, photo problems, and just lack of will and time have left this blog empty. But finally today I did it. As you can see Joel and Abby are growing. Abby turned 2 in July and keeps us smiling. Joel started first grade, loves playing sports, and finally mastered riding his bike without training wheels. We are building a house...a long project still going. We added another member to our family.....Cocoa the kitty. She is actually pretty sweet considering she has to put up with a two year old. I am so thankful for fall. It's been a refreshing time after a long hot and difficult summer. Thankful for God's faithfulness along this journey of life.
