It's been a while

So many things have happened since I last wrote. I guess we can conclude that I am not a true blogger.

In March Jacob turned 16 and Lydia turned 6. Jacob has been very busy with school, Spirit Borne and his social life so he has not yet gone for his G1 but it will happen soon now that school is slowing down. We have mixed emotions about that.

We celebrated Easter again at Uncle Brian's and Aunt Brenda's where the kids had a great time doing the outdoor Easter egg hunt. This was Anna's first time doing it and she had a wonderful time filling her bag. She now uses the word "chocolate" fluently.

On our drive home we all enjoyed a walk across the bridge in Campbellford. It was a great day!

In May we celebrated Mother's Day and Josiah's 13th birthday.

I can't believe we now have two teenage boys. They are amazing young men. I so enjoy watching them learn and grow. Also, love the discussions on deeper things in life we now have from time to time. I must admit, being a mom is not an easy job, but there are those moments when it is so rewarding and I know that I have been able to be a part of guiding and shaping their lives in some way and that compares to nothing else.
We had an amazing day at our track and field meet with Cornerstone Christian Academy again this year. Josiah, Esther and Lydia participated and all won some ribbons. Josiah came in first in the senior boys 800 m. So proud!!
Last week Jacob was a part of a fundraiser for Spirit Borne, the performing arts group he is a part of. It was a dinner theatre and he played the part of Wally the nerd. He was great! I am sure he will not be happy with me but I just had to share this.....

Anna is doing wonderfully! She has been with us for almost a year now. That went by so fast. She has fit in to our family so well it is almost hard to believe, but we know that God has had this whole journey in His hands and He has blessed us so abundantly. I did not know that my life would be so profoundly affected by this journey or by our sweet little girl but God always knows what He is doing and I trust Him more than ever.
