Why I have not updated in awhile...

I'm sorry to leave you all hanging and wondering where I am! Daniel and I are having some computer problems and are using an old laptop that is VERY SLOW. I have temporarily put my blogging on hold until we can work something out or get a faster computer for uploading pictures and such. Hopefully I will be back at it again soon!

Here is a short update on our family. Mercy is now 8 weeks old and getting prettier everyday:-) We are still trying to get adjusted to having kids under 5 but every week things seem to get just a little bit easier. God is definitely giving us patience and helping us find joy in the journey of raising little ones! The boys who are now 5 1/2 and 4 1/2 are doing very well in Kindergarten at home. They are both reading simple books and are both involved in Awanas. We continue to attend a homeschool co-op on Thursdays called Classical Conversations and we love it. Isaac is playing UPWARD basketball and is very much enjoying his practices. Grace is doing well with her potty training but still has a ways to go in becoming independent with it. I have been getting up at 5:45am to go to the gym in the mornings before we start school. It is making a big difference in giving me the energy and time I need to manage such a busy household! Daniel is still enjoying being self employed even though managing rental properties can be frustrating at times:-) He is very excited and thankful for how far the business has come in the last year! We are still enjoying our Church so much and our Friday night life group. Life is very busy for us but we are thoroughly enjoying it and thank God for each blessing he has given us!
