It's been a long while....

1st Day of School

okay, we are still alive for anyone who may be wondering...and we have been having fun. Here's what we have been up to... we have a new dog, her name is Oreo, she is a Border Collie. She is fantastic and is still a puppy, but we love her anyway. Over Labor Day we went and visited Uncle Devin, Aunt Nicole and Jonas, it was a terrific trip. Destry has taken up a new hobby of rock climbing, it occupies all of his spare time :) which isn't much. There is a lot of other things we have done, but since it has been so long I don't remember. Brynn is looking forward to turning 8 on October 8th, 2010 and being Baptized on 10/10/10 (pretty cool date huh?) She is in the 3rd grade and loves every minute of. They really have stepped up the academic end of things though. Keagyn has started 1st grade and has the kindest teacher ever. She is the perfect fit for Keagyn. She is learning to read and is getting to be very proficient at it. Auryana is very much a two year old, with all the fun, silliness and orneriness that comes with being two. She loves her one on one time at Grandma's. Destry is in school, finished his Associates and will be done with his Bachelor's in March of 2012, no don't get too excited, we still have the Master's to go for. But we are making progress. I am working at a local hospital and am really enjoying my job, which makes leaving home a lot easier. That's us in a nutshell, enjoy some of our pictures!

Check out the size of that apple!  Ever heard of the movie So I Married an Axe Murderer, it's got its own weather system!
Sittin pretty on the pumpkins.

Super Cat Keagyn.  (She couldn't decide between a black cat and SuperGirl, so we combined.)

A really long time...SORRY!

For all of you who have wondered if we have dropped off the face of the earth, a resounding no!  But I do find it difficult to make myself sit down and post and besides it's not like you all want to know about my days at work.  The girls have spent their summer with Twalla, reading, jumping, practicing their listening skills (not really, but we try), playing NCIS with sandwich bags, medicine droppers and dirt.  Destry and I went to Boston for a work conference for me, that was fun.  Destry checked out the BAC, where he may attend for his Masters in Architecture.  Yesterday we went to Buttonwood Farms to see the sunflowers.  It was great fun!  We took a hayride through the farm.  We saw cows, chickens and pigs, and fields of beautiful sunflowers.  So far that is the extent of our summer.  Pretty boring, but....that's what happens when we have school to pay for.  And honestly we wouldn't have it any other way right now.  We have truly felt the Lord's hand in our lives these past months, and we are forever grateful for his love.  Enjoy the pictures!!!
