I Spy 2007
An Ambulance: Paul was chosen by his company to go to Paramedic school this winter. He will be going to Denver to school for six months. Thompson Valley EMS is footing the bill and paying his salary while he’s in school, so it is really a great privilege to be chosen.
A Bible: Karin has taken 2 Beth Moore bible studies this year and really enjoys the chance to get out of the house and interact with other women. If you ever have the chance, take a Beth Moore study. You won’t regret it.
Baby Doll Dress: Karin opened her own on-line children’s clothing store this year. It makes just enough money to support her cute children’s clothing addiction.
Washington D.C. Pop-up: Laurin got to go with the Kansas Farm Bureau and Poppy and Grammy to Washington D.C. this spring. She had a great time and took tons of pictures. This summer Laurin also got to spend a week with Grandpa and Grandma at their home in Missouri. She had the most fun on the tube on the lake and visiting Silver Dollar City.
French Horn: Laurin started Middle School this fall and is learning to play the French horn. Like mother like daughter. She is also in the school choir and running club.
School Bus: Laina started kindergarten this fall and absolutely loves it. She and Laurin both got into the charter school, so they are in the same building. Laina is a very quick learner and her idea of fun is doing homework. She’s currently learning her multiplication tables for fun.
Jet Plane: Laina has informed us that she wants to be a jet plane pilot when she grows up. When I told her that she could take flying lessons, she said that she wanted to take swimming lessons first.
Dump Truck, Tractor, Race Car: If it has wheels or an engine Ethan loves it. For a time he would scream out every time he saw a car driving past or an airplane in the sky and wouldn’t stop until everyone acknowledged it. He is still very curious about everything, so he has loved exploring every inch of the new house.
7 Fish: We didn’t get to do too much fishing this year, but we did enjoy it when we got to go. Paul and Laurin went out one morning this June and came home with a 15 lbs catfish. There was a caiman spotted at one of the areas we went fishing this summer, but we thankfully never saw it.
House: We moved into our own house this October and couldn’t be happier. We had definitely outgrown the duplex, and now we have twice as much room. The house has a large, fenced backyard, a garden, a mostly unfinished basement, and a laundry room. We thank God for His many blessings
