Catching Up

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged about our daily lives, except to say that things have been busy. Here’s a taste of that busy-ness:

_MG_9565 Becca’s been writing stories.

_MG_9566 (read in two columns, not all the way across)

_MG_9570I have also baked a few pies and apple crisps with our yummy apples from the apple picking day. Oh, how I love apple pie!

_MG_9651I went with Elise on her preschool field trip to the pumpkin patch! It was a little tough to get all of those preschoolers to look at the camera at the same time…or even three of them.

_MG_9644 Elise and two of her friends, showing off their pumpkins.

_MG_9641 Elise and her amazing preschool teacher…Grandma!!

_MG_9595 Sarah using the downhill well at her most difficult XC race – the course was a loop they had to run 3 times, and about 1/4 of that loop was a LONG, STEEP hill. Everyone had their worst time of the year, but Sarah placed the highest she’s ever placed – FIFTH out of 72!

_MG_9943 The Junior High XC team stretching before their last meet.

_MG_9942 Close-up of Sarah stretching. I just wonder who she is listening to and what she is thinking. I hope it’s not a boy…

_MG_9976 Coming in, finishing up her last race of the year.

_MG_9978 She got her best time at the last race: 10 minutes, 18 seconds - coming in First for her team, 7th overall. Sarah, we are so proud of you for working hard and for running your best and for giving God the glory! It was so much fun to watch you this season and we can’t wait to continue to watch you run!!

_MG_9993 Last week the 7th and 8th graders gave a music assembly. Sarah’s in both choir and band and loves them both. It was great fun to hear the choir, band, and also the orchestra. It’s such a blessing to have all those music teachers in the lives of my children. They are talented and fun and sincere Christians who teach my children to love music and to use it for God’s glory. It doesn’t get much better than that.

_MG_0003 Sarah really does enjoy playing my her flute.

_MG_0022 Bethany spent a large portion of today working on a model of a cell. She used all crafting supplies.

_MG_0026 It turned out pretty great, don’t you think?

That’s pretty much it for our daily lives. Plus a bunch of other stuff I didn’t take pictures of and don’t remember anymore. Plus some stuff we’re in the middle of that I’m not ready to blog about yet, but you’ll see it all soon!

You are one busy momma with all the stuff your girls are involved in. Looks like you are all having fun though. Your pie looks delish! and great job to Sarah! That's one think I look forward to when my boys are older - going to their sporting events...unless they play football. Not sure I could watch them getting all beat up out on the field.
