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!
