We had a great time in Idaho and it was such a blessing to be able to spend such a long visist with family. It has been great to be home also. With school and life back on routine and being able to spend time with our friends who are also our family. Thanks to all for the awesome welcome home.

Well we went to the fire station that Papa Carnie used to work at. Jessie (sis- in law), Karen (pastor Tim's wife), Blair (her sis in law, also a missionary), Grandma, Papa and our 13 kids went to have a tour. We had a great time, all of the firemen from different stations came to see Carnie and put on a show for the kiddos. While we were there the men on duty got called out so the kids loved watching them get dressed o so fast and watch the lights. When our tour was finished we went and grabbed a coffee and went to the park. All of the kids were so well behaved, it was such a blessing. The ages were from 1 to 9 and 3 of the babies were left at home.

I have been enjoying my children so much these past few weeks. They have been so easy going with all the changes of staying at Papa's and going to a new church, it is such a blessing in how they trust us with their little lives. Clayton and Maxx have been such hard workers in school and with all of the projects. When they are small it is so much work, with character shaping, and so little fruit. Now that they are getting older I can see the fruit ten fold. The impact God has made on their lives is amazing and such a joyful blessing. Just thought I would share that with everybody.

We have been at more projects, the progress at Luke's moms is a bit slower, but in the end the work will be so beautiful. We are headed back to Washington today for men's retreat. Can't wait to see all of the ladies. The picture with the clay was Jessie making Luke out of cranium clay( he loves it when we pick on him.) We have had Bobby with us for a few days, it has been a great time and a blessing for some help with the soffit. Clayton and I went to an anniversary meeting at Heritage Baptist on Monday, it was great to hear so much from the Lord. Jessie came with me for a bit, it was great to have to company. You have to check out Luke and Bobby's very safe scaffolding set up. Hope everybody is well, God bless.

We finished the first project today!! It has been nice to help Luke and get a good days of work in, but what a blessing it is to be able to stay home and be a house wife. We went to a great bible study tonite at the pastors house of the church we have been going to. We had a great time, it is so nice to see so many young families that love the lord in a small church,
The neighbor passed away while we were their and it just really made me remember how important it is to share the gospel message with everybody around us. We had a lesson on faith and are we living by faith daily?? I am loving having all this time with Luke. We hope all is well and love everybody. Luke, Mary and the boys

Luke let me post a blog!! We are putting a fence up at grandmas this week so we wanted to share some pictures with eveyone. Clayton has been quite the little leader telling us all how things should go and Maxx spends more getting his coat on and off running in and out. It is sooooo cold here, the high here has been about 40. It has been such a blessing being able to spend so much time with Luke as a family. Everyone will have to bear with me untill I can figure this thing out.
