a good experience . . .

Several changes have happened over the last few days. The biggest being that our first born is now DRIVING! What a trip.

Saturday we went to the BMV and Nolan did well on his written test. I told him if he passed, I would take him on a drive with me that day and have him drive the entire time. Since he passed, he drove us to a small town about an hour from where we live. We dropped off an amish lady so she could visit her family. It was a good experience for him to not only drive on the country roads, but also to drive through the center of some towns.. I am also excited because this means when I need someone else to drive besides Ildi or I, we have someone to call on. :)

Our chickens started laying this week. The children found 3 eggs in the barn (a place they should not be laying them) and were shocked that they found a different spot to put them. Over the next few weeks we have to be diligent to keep the hens in during the day so they will get the idea that we want them to put their eggs in the nesting boxes. All this so we don't have to run around the property trying to do the fall version of an Easter egg hunt.

I think tracking down stray eggs everyday around your property could be a great way for your kids to get their exercise and feel like everyday is a treasure hunt! Think of how fun that could be! And speaking of fun - Nolan driving! - Oh my! He's so grown up. (Have you started graying yet?!)

I feel really old now! Nolan driving?! It seems like yesterday that he was a baby! Well, do well Nolan! Garth and Ildi, we'll be praying for you!:-)

Lct4j-graying happened a long time ago, unfortunately. However, I don't have a problem getting older and uglier. Our chickens and cow could care less about what I look like. :)

ST-thanks for the prayers. You are always so faithful to lift us up to our Lord. It does seems like yesterday doesn't it? And you . . . you have a TEENAGER in your house!
