Andrea, Elaina and the older cousins were awesome at watching all of the little kids downstairs!

Cleaning the Shoe Closet

Andi and I took on the project of cleaning and organizing the shoe closet.....


Well, it started out as a mess but the final product turned out great! Dad ended up building a new shelf for the closet and now it's nice and organized.... I hope it stays that way!

~Pie Making~

Messy picture!
Andi with the pie...

Wow, I look tired!

We made this pie for a friend from our peaches that we froze... I hope it turned out okay!!
Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.

Thursday Evening

Ian and me
Playing cowboy...

Mom found out that she broke the 5th metatarsal in her foot. She is in a removable cast right now and is staying off of her foot for the next week. Hopefully then she will be able to walk in the cast and in 2 or 3 weeks be able to drive.

He loves his new shoes!!!

Dad and Mom's Trip to South Haven

Last Friday -Sunday Dad and Mom went to South Haven for their anniversary.
They went to some beautiful places there and saw lots of orchards.

Unfortunately, as Mom was getting ready to leave Friday afternoon she broke her foot. They were still able to go on their trip, though. She is on crutches now and is hoping for a quick recovery. Right now she doesn't have a cast or anything but will be seeing the doctor soon, so hopefully we will know more within the next few days.

♪♫ Musical News ♫♪

Last week Andrea got her 3/4 size cello!!! She is so excited!

Orchestra auditions are this weekend so we have both been practicing a lot! She is loving her new cello!

Ian decided that he really wanted to start piano and violin lessons (I told him piano was first!). We got him his first piano books and started lessons.
Maybe when he gets a little bit older we'll start violin...

Andrea helping him out.
