6 months since my last post...

It's September now. I can't believe how the months are zooming by. We had a good vacation this summer to Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. Josiah met his grandpa and grandma, his aunts and uncles and most of his cousins. (He missed out on meeting Michael.) We even had a family reunion with my (Nancy's) dad's family - about 90 relatives... in Idaho. And, we had a great time!

Now we are into school. Our goal is to go through 1st - 5th grades with Josiah this year, get him reading, and more proficient with his English. He is in a Classical Conversations class on Thursdays which provides instruction in math, science, writing, history, geography, Latin, art, and music. He is taking piano lessons, too, and playing soccer. Sound overwhelming? I'm a little overwhelmed at times, but he's doing great so far! We are still homeschooling Andrew, too.

We will be celebrating our 1 year anniversary with him soon in October. We are so thankful for God's blessings on his life and our family.
