THREE Weeks…


…I can’t believe that it’s been that long since my last post!

We have some exciting news:

Brendan has his first job 🙂 !

He started on November 5th and we are so proud of him!  We have loved Chick-fil-A for years and it’s a wonderful company to work for.  The company provides many opportunities for growth and leadership development and so far it seems to be a great fit for Brendan.

He finally gave me permission to post a picture of his first day – thanks Brendan – keep up the good work!



First paycheck (and peppermint shake of the year) 🙂


Ryan and I got to serve with our sweet homeschool group this morning.  We were scheduled to sort and take food to our local food pantry next week, but they called and were in desperate need of food so we moved it to today.  It is heart-warming to see the kids all cheerfully work together as they serve others.

They ROCKED it!

We also delivered lots of Thanksgiving bags and I have to give a shout out to our amazing neighbors who helped fill bags for our church – THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!!!

We’ve also had fun with various science experiments…including a surprise visitor 🙂 :

As this season of Thanksgiving approaches, I am reminded of how very blessed our family is.

Thank you Father for being my Provider, Sustainer, Protector, and Savior!
