Middle school award ceremony

We are so proud of Morgan this year.  She had a great start to middle school were she excelled academically, athletically, socially and spiritually.  Morgan was recognized with three awards in 6th grade for:  President's physical fitness award, the award for the pillar (character) of "being respectful", and award of excellence in math (with the 2nd highest grade point average).

Field Day

Lucy had a a lot of fun at field day and it didn't hurt that she got 3 blue ribbons (1st place), 2 red (2nd place and 1 bronze ribbon (3rd place) out of 8 events!  God has blessed her with athletic ability and she uses it to the max. :)

Christmas 2011

What a great Christmas we enjoyed this year. We had Betsy's brother, Eric, and family (my sister-n-law; Stacy and their kids; Camryn, Amber and Tyler) stay with us this year including their dad, Jim. The kids had an eventful week with learning how to ski, ice skating, sledding, swimming and not to mention presents!

Fun in the backyard
