All four boys love being outside: swimming, riding bikes, playing ball, digging in the dirt, catching frogs and snakes (yep-good times) and helping with the garden. They really hope this winter time move means some ice fishing for them and summertime brings more fishing and camping.
I found a clogging group at the beginning of the year, dusted off my shoes from 20 years ago, and jumped right in. The gals I danced with were all senior citizens, but I loved 'em all. We had a lot of fun at our weekly class and occasional performances. I also was able to train for and participate in my first half marathon in June. I probably couldn't have done it without the 3 other gals I ran with. Our uplifting conversations during long runs helped pass the time.
Steven has been busy learning the ropes of a new position but really enjoys his work and the people he works with. In July, Steven and Adam joined their Weaver cousins in a hike through part of the Narrows. They had so much fun it may become an annual event.
We have much to be grateful for including our family, our dear friends, and our knowledge of Jesus Christ and His importance in our lives. We hope that this letter finds you all healthy, happy, and blessed by our Savior in your lives as well.

I know posts have been a bit sporadic and, well, things just aren't going to improve around here for a couple of weeks. Our house is finally "sale pending" so I'm packing and cleaning. We leave in just a few days and then I'll be consumed with getting the kids in school, unpacking, and most importantly-putting up the Christmas tree. I plan to post a Christmas letter the first full week of December. Until then-enjoy your Thanksgiving and the beginning of the most wonderful time of the year!
