Well, it's been a while! Life has been crazy in every way possible. But a good kinda crazy, you know? The past couple months have been filled to the rim with family, friends, school, church/church events and extracurricular activities. On top of our exciting everyday life, it's Fall now, which makes everything even more exciting!!! What is your favorite season?
One of the many perks of being home schooled is that we can go on so many fun family field trips during the day. This particular day we were at a local farmstead that we go to each fall. (Don't worry, we didn't leave Madyson at home, she was taking the picture!;)
We met up with a family from our church at the farmstead. This is their daughter, Haley. She is such a bright and beautiful girl, with a heart bigger than anyone I've ever met before!!
I find the water pump amusing each time we go... it never gets old!! ;)
Another day we decided to go out to lunch with the whole crew! Randy joined us for lunch before we went over to a sea aquarium!! The food there was so yummy!
Of course we had to pose for a picture with the lego statues before heading to the aquarium!!
I just love this picture of Ava and I! It literally explains us! It was actually like a bubble that you sat in and it went up into the fish tank!! It was so cool!
Mom and I went to dinner one night with another girl and her mom! I just adore this girl right here! She always make me laugh!! We had some great conversations that night about school, life and Jesus!
And of course mom and I had to have some coffee dates thrown in there too!!
Probably the best part of the last couple of months has been this. Back in June we started attending a church just down the road. We immediately fell in love with the church! We had been searching for a church that taught the truth and felt like a family. When we started coming to this church we knew that God had put us there for a reason! We actually became members in October!
After becoming members of the church Katy and I decided to be baptized! Above, is a picture of us with our pastor just before being baptized!
The older kids in our family had the chance to go to our very first ever county fair with some friends!! It was definitely an experience! When we got there, around noon, we quickly found out that none of the events would be open until 6:00. Luckily, there were some 4H students who were showing their animals, so we watched that for a while! Then we all walked over to a little restaurant and had a late lunch!
We got to pet some horses while we were there too!
Recently, I have found what I want to do for the rest of my life. Now, that may sound kind of silly, but you know that moment when you just know that something is for you.... well that was me about 2 months ago.
I have decided that I would like to get my degree in Physical therapy and equestrian studies. I would like to open a horse ranch for riding and physical & mental therapy. Never in a million years would I have thought I would even be entertaining this idea, but I visited a ranch just like this and it was a light bulb moment.
Lots of time spent with family! I am so lucky to have so many role models in my life! I am always learning from my family, even the littles!
I think it's time to sign off now and say goodbye!!
