Family Update

Oh, hi there.  Remember us??  I know, I know...we haven't been keeping things updated here on the 'ole blog, but we've been too busy living our LIFE!  I know, crazy...huh?  ;)

Here is an update of what's been going on in the past 2 months...bullet style...

*Our house was on the market for several months, and after 3 agressive price drops and no interest, God has provided a way for us to STAY here while we build the other homes!?  We are so grateful.  It's off the market for now...but as we've learned the hard way, we'll hold this home with an open hand and let the Lord have His way...

*The first of our 3 additional homes to be built on our newly subdivided property is currently being worked on!  It's taking shape quickly and the roof is going on as we speak!  I love the floor plan of the new house.  Now let's pray for a buyer for it soon!! :)

*Hailey and Owen have spent several weeks of the summer in swimming lessons!  Hailey has passed level 3 and is now working on her crawl stroke!  It looks more like a doggie paddle right now, but she's working hard on it! ;)  And Owen...he started the lessons so terrified of the water that the teachers had to rip our screaming son out of my arms.  Just 2 days ago he got in trouble for jumping into the kiddie pool by himself when it wasn't his turn. We'll take the progress!

*Our family got the amazing priviledge of serving up at a Freshman camp at Rockridge Canyon, a YL Canada camp in Princeton, BC.  It was amazing!  Lots of work and very little sleep for me, but it was such a treat for our kids...and such fun watching Todd be "Mr. Mom" for the week.  He was a trooper!!

*We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of my new niece OR nephew...Christy is due any minute day now and we are dying to find out what the baby is!?! I also just booked tickets for Hailey and I to visit next month...and she promises that she'll do diapers. ;)

*My children are such fun right now...they play together so well (most of the time ;) and are getting so independent! Love those kids... :)

Well, that's all I can think of at the moment, but I promise I'll try to be better about updating the blog...and I'll do my best to put some pictures up soon too.
