Our Family in 2009


George
  • going on his 8th year at MIE and still loves it
  • worked with 11 year old Scouts at church
  • spends many hours on hobby projects...many can be seen right here on this blog!


Anna
  • spends many hours homeschooling kids and wondering how her house gets so dirty and will it EVER be clean again
  • joined Weight Watchers to lose that last 15 baby pounds (or maybe 30:)
  • directs the choir at Church

Levi
  • turned 6 and is in 1st grade
  • loves taking piano lessons from Grandma and building things like Legoes and robots
  • loves his homeschool gym and swim class and learning computer programming with Daddy

Natalie
  • just turned 5, is in Kindergarten and is a great reader
  • loves playing with her brothers (most of the time) and takes care of the younger boys
  • loves to play the piano and to play with her neighbor friends

Sam
  • just turned 3 and wants to do what the older kids are doing or he wants to do it "by himself"
  • loves to have his 'puter time where he plays games on the computer
  • is NOT interested in growing up...he often mentions his old crib and pacifier and says, "I not big, I little!"

Seth
  • turned 1 in March and started to climb on everything!
  • finally old enough to go in to the Nursery at church and loves the Child Watch at the YMCA
  • calls Sam "Mamo", Nat "Wa-wee", and Levi "By-by" and is a cutie:)
It has been a good year around here. Feel free to read the blog for all of our activities:) I am so thankful for this time to look back and appreciate what we have and resolve to do better next year. I am thankful for our Savior and the ultimate Sacrifice that he gave. What a blessing to us all! To all of you, my dear friends and family, a late Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New Year!
