Books we have read or are reading:
Mike is busy at camp. They are working on adding an addition to the garage. He has completed the fireplace in the dining hall, and the hot buffet line. They will put carpet in the cabins sometime this winter. He also is working on preparing and planning to make a "tepee Village" in the woods. He may have the opportunity to go to Kansas City to build a bio dome. One of the board of directors has offered Mike some side work, of which, he remodeled his bathroom, and will now be remodeling his basement. Mike is also one of the teachers for our co-op on Thursday's for the Middle School group. After Christmas break he will do some wood shopping classes for the High School. He is really enjoying working with the kids, and teaching them some life skills. Although our space is limited, he does the best he can. We are hoping we can actually get some work voluntarily for the high schools to actually do some hands on experience!
The kids are adjusting, but definitely have our rounds with emotional sadness. The boys are involved with their youth group on Wednesday's and Awana on Sunday nights. Kirk has a biology class on Monday's and coop on Thursday's. He will enroll in an art class this spring! Owen does coop on Thursday, and has expressed his interest in the theatre. I will look into that as soon as I can... They have a great circle of friends that they have gotten involved with.. We are so blessed with that.
Prior to us moving out here, we were in a season of "waiting" We prayerfully asked God to open doors for us and his timing couldn't have been better. We accepted his Call on our lives and eagerly await to see where this leads. Currently we are in a season of "learning" We want to make ourselves as available as we can to learn and gain as much knowledge as the Lord is willing to give us. We couldn't do this with out the prayer support of our loved ones... We Thank You from the bottom of our hearts!!!!
