We said goodbye to our Dodge Caravan last week and welcomed a new-to-us Toyota Sienna into the family…after multiple repairs and a few thousand dollars, it was clear the caravan was on it’s last leg and we were forced to face the inevitable purchase of another medical van. We are blessed to have safe, reliable transportation again…something I don’t take for granted for sure!!
I have been struck lately by how truly evident God’s grace is in the lives of the big sibs…they are investing their time in good things and they manage it all well. I am in awe of them and grateful for the many ways they inspire me daily.
Maxo is busy juggling the end of his hockey season while starting up LaCrosse practice at the high school…he was asked to speak at the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) club at school this past week and was recognized for his leadership potential recently with a nomination to participate in the GLOBAL LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE…open to selected juniors from all the area high schools each year. It’s fun to watch him grow as a young leader…
We got a fun glimpse into Wilson’s world through pics from his first military ball this weekend. He is thriving at APU and loves his ROTC experience so far. He’s getting closer to fulfilling his childhood dreams…makes me proud and scared all at the same time.
Olivia’s volleyball season started today and her team grabbed second place overall in the tournament! It’s thrilling to watch our girl play hard and enjoy herself…she is disciplined and elegant on and off the court.
And then there is Rudy who embraces is all with GREAT enthusiasm…whether it is school, church, playing with cars on his bedroom floor or watching his big sibs sporting events…Rudy’s joy in all things is contagious (and a little humbling)! 😉
Life has it’s daily challenges but it’s moments like these that bring meaning to the tough stuff! ‘Grateful for it all today.
