Life Lately

March 27th, 2016 March went by so fast.  Here’s a quick update on what’s been going on… On March 9th, Sumner got his braces off.  This was a BIG deal! The transformation that has taken place is amazing! The orthodontist sent him home with this fun poster and lots of gooey candy he hasn’t been allowed to eat since the braces went on. Photo on left= before braces. Photo on right= after braces. Period of time between the 2 photos= 2 years. Sadie got her first cut at the groomers. If it’s possible, her hair was even softer and fluffier than before. Adam and I...

Jonah’s Science Experiment

January 21st, 2016 Jonah and Adam have been working on a Balloon Race Car for Jonah’s Physical Science Class.  The rules were that it could only move using one balloon, and had to be made out of products you could easily find in your house.  They had so much fun with this!  They had a couple different versions for the car, but in the end the one made out of an Optimus Prime mask, back wheels out of CDs, and a hidden ping pong ball for the front wheel won out.  Jonah ended up taking second place in the race, losing by a fraction of an inch.  It didn’t matter though, he had too...

Jonah Turns 13!

September 4th, 2015 Jonah turned 13 today and we officially gained a second teenager in our house!  What a great youth he is turning out to be!  We couldn’t be more proud of his heart and his love for others.  We see God using him as a force for His kingdom.  Jonah has a unique way of wearing his heart on his sleeve while also being very stoic in his responses.  He cracks us up with his dry sense of humor.  He is wise, a deep thinker, and endearingly one of the most stubborn people you will ever come across!  Once he makes up his mind about something, there is no changing it. ...

Camp Blessing

August 3rd-8th, 2015 Sumner and Jonah got to experience something priceless this past week.  They served at Camp Blessing, a camp for mentally handicapped and physically handicapped children that don’t get to attend the typical summer camps.  I prayed that God would use this experience to awaken them to the needs all around them.  He did just that and more.  They came out of this experience with a heart for the campers that attended.  Sumner & Jonah saw how much each of the campers thoroughly enjoyed life, never feeling sorry for themselves or sad about their circumstances. ...
