We are a family of fifteen: eight already with Jesus and seven in desperate need of Him. This is the story God is writing in our lives. Proverbs 16:9

Our Weekend

We have had a nice weekend of out-of-the-ordinary activities with the boys. This past Friday night, we took them bowling. They both did great- Andrew was able to hold the ball and launch it toward the pins all on his own! Elijah needed a bit of assistance. He was excited if his ball made it to the pins before the timer shut down our lane!
This evening, we spent two hours on the Ohio river with the staff of Chick-fil-a. Micah's boss treated everyone from both of his stores to desserts and a lovely evening on the Spirit of Jefferson boat. When the boys found out we would be going on a big boat, they were so excited. Andrew asked who would be driving the boat and I answered, "the captain", of course. Suddenly, Elijah's excitement turned to concern. He looked at Micah and I with his big brown eyes and said, "Captain Hook?". After a good laugh we assured him that Captain Hook was not in charge of the boat we would be on. We all enjoyed ourselves; the boys especially enjoyed the dance floor. We're not sure where Elijah has learned this hip-hop pose, but is was certainly a crowd pleaser.
As for a family update, we are taking things one day at a time. As some of you know, Micah decided it was unwise for him to continue school this fall. I am so thankful for him and his dedication to making decisions that are best for our family~ The Lord has blessed that decision so far. The answer to the question of where to go from here, well- We are the Lord's and we are going to continue to pray for the grace and strength to remain in His will, careful to enjoy all the moments of joy we are afforded along the way.

What a great idea to go bowling! We've never thought to do that with the girls.

Amber and I still say that Midland, TX could use a Childs' family.
