The boys had their first time singing in front of the whole church. They did awesome! Last time Clayton tried to sing in front of the church....he ran off crying.
Luke and I were not there to see them. Thanks Laura for taking the pictures! Luke and I are in the middle of getting our foster license. We have had classes the last two weekends. We had great families step-up for babysitting. The classes were real eye opening about how far the world is from God and how much people deny Him. It was a good reminder for me to be praying for the world diligently. We are going to be licensed for 3 little ones! I am very excited to have little ones under foot again. I don't think we will have kids until May. Which will be nice to be almost done with school. Then I will have the summer to get use to having more kids before school starts again.
Luke is now working at Children s hospital in Seattle. He will be there (lord willing) for the next few years. He likes the new job a lot and also loves only working 40 hour weeks. Not much new, just getting ready for our home-study.
This picture below is a picture that Clayton made on paint. He is very creative and an awesome artist. Hope everybody has a great day!


  1. Wow great job Clayton!Mary I'm excited for you to get some kiddos! I'm sure it is nice having your classes done. Have a great week!

  2. Mary- WOW....I am so excited for you guys to get that done and see how the Lord is blessing you guys! More kiddos and Luke getting somewhere he loves for a couple years and more time at home, not to mention it looks like you guys are in a wonderful church and the boys are growing so much! We sure miss you all. Clayton- What a wonderful picture! That is very creative and beautiful job his hard work and concentration shows! Love and miss you all much, Nukes.

  3. Oh Clayton - awesome picture!!! Love you guys and thanks for the chat yesterday. We love and miss you all so much. Miss our birthday bashes on the waterfront, and impromptu splashing in the pools! ahhhh ... good times.
    But I digress...
    So glad you all are in the thick of it for preparing to be used however the Lord sees fit. Your family is blessed of God - but because you seek to follow Him and His Word. That is why God's hand is upon you. Don't forget, or neglect. Love you ...
