Bragging on Megan

This was the second year that Megan entered pictures into the Elkhart County Parks Photo Contest. She works very hard getting good pictures and hopes to earn a ribbon next year. She asked Mr. Courtney (who is in charge) and he said she was youngest to enter any pictures! We learned later that the next youngest entry was taken by a ten year old.

Keep up the good work Megan!

Christmas Play

img_8317-kidsMy kids were all part of a Christmas play this year. Audrey and Adrian were both wise men. Megan got to be a scribe. Mark worked on lights and sound and Andrea helped where needed.

It was a lot of work but they did well memorizing their parts.  They enjoyed getting to know the children at church better during the rehearsals. All of them enjoyed performing the play and did a great job!

Merry Christmas!

“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”  Luke 2: 11-14

Sweet Surprise

img_8024-sweets-surprise_shareAllan had today off of work. Unfortunately, he got up his normal time.  He went upstairs because the lights were on and discovered Megan and Thor sleeping with the Christmas lights turned on.  He noticed the milk and cereal on the table too.

When we asked Megan about it later, she said she woke up hungry and got herself breakfast. Then she curled up to go back to sleep. She said that Thor was upstairs keeping her company.

Math Class

img_7261-mathWhile Megan was doing her math this morning, I heard her talking to Thor.  “If you have two treats and I gave you five more because you are a good boy, how many treats do you have? Two plus five equals seven!”

She worked a little longer and Thor decided to leave. Megan stood up, gave him a great big hug and said, “Thank you Thor for helping me do my math.  You are a big helper!”
