Baby Abigail Ultrasound

We went to have an ultrasound on baby Abigail. They said she is big, baby Abigail is 6.9 lbs as of Oct 29th. We will be having a c-section on Nov 27th as long as she stays. I have really enjoyed baby Abigail moving around in me. We are all looking forward to holding her soon. Thank you for praying for our sweet family.

A week with our family

We had a wonderful time off. The marriage conference was everything we had hoped it would be. Our sweet friends Will and Charity blessed us with tickets to it.

After the marriage conference we went to the lake house that our friends, the Walther's, have blessed us with over the years. We get to go up to their lake house about 2-3 times a year. These are a few of the things we like to do there: play games.

Play with all their toys...

Play outside...

Drive the golf cart...

Go fishing...

Take baths in the jacuzzi tub...

Make carmel apples...



After the lake we went to Mounds, Ok (Tim's hometown) to the Knox Family Reunion. There were 23 of us staying at Tim's parents house. The girls slept in the house and the boys camped out in tents. Tim and Nathan had a wonderful time doing this.

We played lots of games outside as a family.

The grand kids loved playing at the park with grandma.

We are one blessed family!!!!

A Pair of Red Clogs

This week for Five In a Row we did the book A Pair of Red Clogs by Masako Matsuno. Mako (the little girl in the book) receives a new pair of shoes and learns the importance of honesty. Which turned out to be great for us because the boys are learning about lying and telling the truth.

For math we got out different types of shoes and put them in pairs and counted them. We also put them from biggest to smallest.

Nathan and Micah enjoyed counting how many blue pairs, brown pairs, black pairs, and so on.

Tim did a great job on teaching them the different types of shapes a shoe can have.

We learned about the Japanese culture and what their flag looks like. It was fun looking up where Japan was on the map.

We had a wonderful week learning together as a family.

All in a week!

Tim and I were blessed to go to a Family Life Marriage Conference this weekend. We are sad to say we have never been to a marriage conference in almost 8 years of marriage. The boys went to Tim's parents and had a blast! Something that I learned this weekend is I need to always put God first, Tim second, and the kids third. Also, we should never stop dating each other. We are looking forward to going to more marriage conferences and getting away for a few days to spend together.

Now we are off to our friends lake house that we go to a few times a year to get away as a family. When we go to the lake house we get to spend lots of time together (there is no cable TV or Internet). We play games, read books, go on walks, fish, eat at fun little restaurants, and laugh a lot.

After we leave the lake house we are going to Mounds, Ok where Tim grew up, for the Knox Family Reunion. The boys have looked forward to this for a long time. The plan is for all the boys to sleep outside in tents and the girls to sleep in the house=)

(This is a picture of the boys practicing putting up the tent before we go)

As you can tell this is going to be a wonderful week for the Knox family. Tim and I spent alone time together, we will have family time at the lake house, and extended family time in Mounds, Ok, all in a week.

When was the last time you got away and what are things you like doing with your family?
