Blogging has taken a back seat to a lot of life for me, and that is okay. There is no possible way to try and sum up the last year until now, so I thought I would just do a little sharing of August and September.
Jonah was asked to be a ring bearer in our friends Jake and Isabelle's wedding. Josh officiated the ceremony too. I didn't get a good picture of that, as I was in the back with Jonah making sure he would go down the aisle! It was a beautiful time with some very special people, and we were honored to be a part of it!
This new school year has been a good one for the kids. Emma is a junior, and Josie is a freshman. They are both doing well in school and are part of the school musical this year. Seussical will be performed the first weekend in November! Emma has been driving them to and from school each morning, and it is fun to see their friendship grow even more.
Addie is in 7th grade and Isaac is in 1st. They are enjoying another year at their school, and we are very proud of their accomplishments.
Jonah turned THREE on September 1st! He is such a big boy. No pacifier. No sippy cups. Totally potty trained. The only thing that is still "baby" is his crib. He likes it and doesn't want to move into a bed right now, and since he doesn't climb out, we are ok with that too!
The best this month has brought us was a good visit to the oncologist for Josh. His scan showed the nodules in his lungs and lesion on his kidney have not grown at all. I believe the term was "too small to deal with, but two big to ignore". This is good news for sure. He will keep getting checkups, and blood work every three months, and scans every six months. We are very happy!
So much more has happened. Josh and Emma's trip to the Philippines, our week at Blue Gable, and a bunch of ministry things to share, but that will have to wait until another time.
Little adorable ring bearer Jonah!
First day for this 11th, 9th, 7th, and 1st grader!
Happy 3rd birthday!
One year down!
