Getting Back to Normal

Well a week ago on Sunday as we were walking out of church the wind was blowing strongly and we really didn't think to much about it but the weather had said that we were under a high wind advisory and really how bad could that be......WELL, it ended up that majority of the area lost power, luckily we only lost power for about five minutes and the kids ended up not having school all week.Talk about interesting trying to find groceries! During the week Nathan had a history project due for when he went back to school. And as it goes we had the material and just kept putting it off but we were finally able to help him get it done. He had to have a project of something from the region that he was given and so he decided to build a Hogan. Talk about interesting on how to build one and keep the mud from falling off of the wood. After much work we were able to get it completed. It was very interesting to learn how others used to live. So I was thrilled with the project and that they were finally able to go back to school and life could get back to hopefully a normal routine.

Fast Lane

Well this is for all of you that think I have forgotten all about blogging. I really haven't but there has been a lot happening here in our neck of the woods. First of all, Jericka is now a big 7 year old and thinks she is going on 17. Nathan has been selected for Safety Patrol. Talk about sweet talking the person in charge. He had to write a letter stating why he should be chosen. I guess it worked because the very next day he was accepted and started working and helping with the car pool line. Kyle on the other hand is starting to enjoy school this year. He is always amazing me on the things that he likes to do. His love for science is paying off because this year he has been added project manager for the science projects at school for his class.
