Merry Christmas Eve!
Twas the day before Christmas and nothing was stirring at our house. It's quiet, mostly, and a slow start to the day. Breakfast is in the oven, coffee is being consumed, dog's been out, animals fed. Not such a bad start to the day!
It's been a pretty good year for us. We've survived the Home Study process and have an adoption application in at Adoption Answer. We're officially waiting to be matched.
The boys finished up 4th and 1st this past May. We took a few weeks off and started 5th and 2nd lightly through the summer. Both boys have enjoyed being involved in Cub Scouts and Tae Kwon Do this year. They're progressing and earning their ranks in both activities. Thing One is a Webelo 2 and will move onto Boy Scouts near the beginning of 2011. Ian is a Wolf this year and enjoying it. Both guys are a Senior White belt in Tae Kwon Do and looking forward to testing for their yellow belt.
Kevin continues to work at The Emmes Corporation as a Senior Software Programmer. Hard to believe he will have been with the company for 15 years next month. Only down fall with his job is the 30 plus mile commute, one way. In this economy, that's not such a bad thing. Outside of work, he's been active in various ministries at Burke Community Church (BCC). Probably his most favorite is playing bass, with a close tie for second in the various aspects of Men's Ministry.
This year, I've enjoyed attending Breakaway, the Women's Bible Study at BCC. During this past fall semester, I joined in with some of the ladies to preform skits at some Breakaway. It's been fun getting to know a few ladies a bit better through this. Learned a few things knitting this year. Started off by learning how to make a hat. Also learned a few new stitches.
I hope you have a Merry Christmas while celebrating the birth of Jesus.
