April 19, 2010

Hello! Hope you all are doing well...I don't know how so much time goes by between posts - at home I checked my email a couple times a day, normally, and looked at my favorite blogs every couple days. NowI just don't think to go on the computer - so if anyone wants to get a hold of me, better call!

Thank you all for your nice comments on our last post :) It's such a blessing to have family and friends that are supportive of having children and are knowledgeable on the topic! Oh, and by the way, I told Aaron that someone left a comment saying they thought the baby way way more exciting than the tiller, and he said it had to have been a girl....Actually, we think it's more exciting too - it's in such a different category that we can joke about it :)

This morning Aaron and I were out raking our yard - even though we're only a mile from town with a highway nearby, the church yard is big enough that it really does feel like we live out in the country.

Saturday was a big day - Recital time! All of the students played two songs - a classical/modern one and a sacred one. Most of them were really fun pieces and the students all did a great job! I was very happy with how it went. The recital was at my parents church because they have a grand piano - quite a change for some of the students who only use a keyboard!

Back - Hosanna, Reuben, Josh, Silas, Matt, Me, Elizabeth
Middle - Jeshua, Erin, Priscilla, Debbie, and Matthew (Grandma's student)
Front - Sarah, Daniel

We went to a couple meetings in Breezy Point, MN - it's a new church and I was wondering why they built it so fancy, until we figured out that it's a resort community - almost all of the buildings are like this.

What else have we been doing? Yesterday we took the Sunday school kids to the glow-in-the-dark-mini-golf place -they had a great time! Aaron went fishing for northerns with some church people, but they didn't catch any that day. He's also been doing a lot of tilling...our yard is sort of in a low spot, so while everywhere else around here is dry, it's still holding moisture.

Have a great week! - or however long it is before we post again -

The Announcement You've Been Waiting For...

We're expecting our first child :) !!!!!

The baby will probaby be born in late Oct./early Nov.

We told our family for the first time on Easter, so you aren't really behind on things...

I've haven't been very sick at all, which is a huge blessing!

There's not a whole lot else to say, except we're really excited and you can all be praying for us!

As for other news that we haven't been good at keeping up on - we've been staying very busy and everything is going well. Aaron and another guy put in this counter-top and cabinets in the church fellowship hall. Since we're using the church kitchen, they'll use this for potlucks and things. Recognize these people? We had Amos and Rebekah and their family over for supper one night.
One day we got a good dusting of hail! It was pretty good size for around here, but not big enough to cause any damage.
The only other really exciting news, almost as exciting as the baby...., is that we just got a new used tiller - It's a Troy-built with very little use on it and we got it for a great deal, so even though out garden is still very muddy, Aaron was excited and had to try it out.
