Wow, Has It Really Been A Whole Year?

I really can't believe that it has been a whole year since I have blogged.  Then again, I can!!!  To anyone who follows this blog on a consistent basis, I am sorry that I have neglected telling our story.  Well, a lot has happened in the last year.  Lindsey is 4 and as grown up as ever.  She has been learning to sit in church and learning so much in Sunday School, Jr. Church and Patch Club.  This year we started a club for the girls of our church.  The name of the club is Stepping Stones.  The theme verse is I Peter 2:21, "For even hereunto were you called, because Christ also suffered for us leaving us an example, that ye should follow His steps."  The girls also learned the first and last verse of "Stepping In The Light."  We meet on Sunday afternoons before church and the girls are learning different sewing skills, crafting and homemaking skills.  The girls have different categories that they learn in their books.  Lindsey is having a great time.  She is so cute and loves all the things that she is learning.  This last Christmas we got Lindsey a violin.  She has loved learning the violin and is learning that it is not all fun and there is some work to learning an instrument.  She will be starting Kindergarten this fall and we are still praying that she will receive Christ as her Savior very soon. 
Now for Lauren!!!  She is our corker.  She is full of life.  She is walking and talking well and can not be stopped.  She makes us laugh all the time.  She loves her Nana and Papa, as does Lindsey.  Lauren loves to play and push her sister's buttons.  She is counting and is starting to learn her "C, D's".  That would be her "A, B, C's".  The world is opening up to her and she is loving life. 
Jake is still teaching Bible in the Christian School and working with the Youth Ministry, as well as whatever the Pastor (Dad) asks him to do.  I have had the opportunity to teach a history class this semester and am loving it.  It has been a time of adjustment in out schedule but the Lord is ever faithful and is helping us as we serve Him. 
Well, I know I have said this before but I am going to try to blog once a week and keep those of you who keep up with our family this way more informed.  We love you all and ask that you would pray for us as we serve the Lord as a family.  Have a wonderful day!!!
