Isn't it weird that I have not posted anything for several months? I can't believe how behind I get.
Actually, I will confess that I like Facebook better because it's more "instant". I can just say a line and then go on about my business.
Our family had a wonderful time traveling to Franklin, OH for the dedication service of their new Family Ministries Building. What a wonderful asset to that church. They have needed that for a VERY long time.
After we had a wonderful lunch there we went to Otterbein Home to visit Chris's mom and her 93 year old husband. He was sharp as a tact the whole time we were there. Chris's mom says that is not always the case!

The kids were so kind to the people at Otterbein Home. Those older people just love to see youth come in the doors. Caleb said and old man stopped him and ask him if he ever wanted to be a pilot. Caleb said "yes" and the man told him he was a retired Marine Pilot. When they parted ways the man said "Semper Fi". That was impressive to my 14 year old's mind. God please guide him in his decision making!!!

Ross is the sweetest old man you'll ever meet! I believe he loves the Lord with all his heart. He is educated and has taught Jr. High Music for I don't know how many years! God bless Ross in these days.

Two boys love their grandma. I was really glad we went there.

I was up at 5:11 this am. Our water heater isn't very generous so, I get up a little earlier so the kids have plenty of hot water to get ready for school. I checked the computer. My faithful desktop weather informed me that is was only 6 degrees outside. Brrrrrrr.....cold. I spent some time sipping my coffee and enjoying all my friends blogs. I love the days of the internet. A quick check of local school closing revealed that my kids do not have to get up this am for school. Oh well, I don't need that much sleep anyway.

Last Friday night the boys went to the home Basketball game. I left the game and left the kids there to attend another appointment. Chris was to be at the game shortly. Daniel had his phone and called Chris a couple of times. Ya know, just checking on you dad! kinda stuff! After they arrived home his phone was NOWHERE to be found. He has never abused it, let other kids play with it, or borrow it, or anything like that! I prayed sincerely, as we have no home phone, that his phone would show up.

Last night (Wednesday) we had devotions with the kids and sent them to bed. 10 minutes later we heard a pounding down the stairs that Godzilla would have been proud of! Daniel, with phone in hand is so excited that he can hardly speak. Yes, he had dropped it and it had made it's way under his bed. (I had looked there but apparently missed it!) Thank God that He cares about our lives!

Special Thanks at Thanksgiving.

Chris's "cracked" windshield. KingAir 90
About 5pm Tuesday evening Chris called me and told me he had to land the airplane in Columbus because they had a cracked windshield. This picture looks a little more than cracked to me! He declares that they were never in an emergency situation and landed the airplane safetly in Columbus where it is being repaired. This Thanksgiving I am thanking God for the mercy and safety he has given our family especially Chris in his job. Over the years of our marriage God has shown His mercy and safety several times. We do thank Him for that!

First Day of School

Wow, I can't believe I haven't blogged since September! Where is the time going? I guess you get busy when you are trying to enroll your boys in a new school. These past few weeks have been nerve racking!

Today we sent the boys to school. Caleb hasn't gone to a school for 7 years and Daniel has never gone to a school before. This is a scary step for all of us. Caleb said he was so nervous yesterday (Sunday) that a Corvette Stingray drove right past him and he didn't even notice!!! A friend had to point it out. He said "I would have never missed that if I hadn't been so nervous!" To him that was the ultimate in being unobservant!

Daniel hasn't said much except that he wants to go. We'll see what he says tonight.

God go with you and bless you Caleb and Daniel as we partner with school teachers for your education!

Caleb and Daniel will be attending Licking County Christian Academy. It is right here in Newark near our house.

Signed, Sold and Closed

The Millard family no longer owns property in Middletown. We closed on the house on Friday Sept. 12. It was truly a wonderful moment. The bubbly "kids" (seemed like kids to me!) that bought it think it's so "cute" and "just can't wait!" to be in there! I loved it. They were so excited. Of course, we were pretty excited to hand it over. Thanks for all your prayers on our behalf in this matter.

To God be the Glory, great things He has done!

Summer Pics

Today we needed to find a Buckeye tree. Why? Because it ist the Ohio State Tree and Caleb needed to add to his Ohio State Study. So while we were out at the Arbaritum today I took quite a few pics. I'll share just a few pics of the good-looking guys.

Caleb just got his new phone today, we added texting this time. It was either take the picture with the phone, or no picture!

My friend Amy and her 2 girls went along. We helped each other with pictures.

Love those eyes!

OK! I'll put the phone down a minute! The battery's almost dead anyway.

Oh yeah, almost forgot...the Buckeye Tree!

Pampered Chef / Trap Shoot?

Our whole family was invited to a Pampered Chef/Trap Shoot Party. It was so much fun. The host did not stand up and show us her stuff, she put it all out on the table and gave us the recipe books and needed items and we got to play with the stuff! It was so cool!

After we cooked, ate and visited, her husband got out the trap and trap shooted and all the men got their guns. (The invitation had told us to bring them.) They shot trap until it was too dark to see.
