Various Pictures

Our Atlanta Trip:
The gang from our T21 on-line bulletin board:
Back row: Annette, Jan, Nicole, Karen, Carol (with Maren on lap), Lisa (holding Jamie in blue and Corie in pink)
Front Row: Kris, Brig (Karen), Archie & Jonah (Carol), Jennifer (Kris)

The kids playing ring-around-the-rosie:

Annette, Carol & Maren, Kris & Jennifer:

Kurtis wanted to wash the van the other day... so I let them have some fun. Unfortunately for the car, their cleaning skills are entirely appropriate for young children. I went for a car wash the next day.

Ryan showing off his flexibility.

While out running errands and cleaning up with Dad, Kurtis found these larges pieces of cardboard and decided to paint a large picture on it. It kept him busy for a couple of days. I like activities like that!

Ryan showing off his soccer skills. We put Ryan in Timbits soccer this year as he has expressed a real interest in playing soccer. He loves to kick the ball around the house so we thought soccer would be a great activity for him. He doesn't mind the skills activities but now isn't quite sure about playing the game. He runs and runs after the ball, but doesn't get it too often. With 8 other children chasing the ball in a pack, it's hard to have sole control of it.

I love Ryan's haircut! He sure looks like a soccer star in his uniform! And I can't get over how old Kurtis looks! They sure are growing up fast!
Hope you're feeling great today!'Love you, Lisa

Hi Annette, So glad to hear you were able to get away for a wee bit. You looked great on the pictures. A change of scenery and meeting 'new' friends can work wonders. We just came back from our family reunion. Got the giggles a few times and just laughed and laughed with my brothers. It was so good to laugh,play and talk with everyone. The kids have all changed so much in 5 years. (I know, duuuu!) Praying for you, your family and your new friend, 'M'. Hope today is a good day for you.
Love, Alice

Hi Annette & Tom
Great pictures!!! some days are just so difficult, and now the news of your mom, we pray for strength for each day for your family and of course your parents too. May God keep you all close to Him. Here is a poem, may it bring you comfort. "Every day"
Every day I need you Lord
but this day especially,
I need some extra strength
to face what ever is to be.
This day more than any day
I need to feel you near,
to fortify my courage
and to ovecome my fear.
By myself, I cannot meet
the challenge of the hour,
there are times when humans help,
but we need a higher power,
to assist us bear what must be borne, and so dear Lord, I pray-
hold on to my trembling hand
and be near me today.
Love from Peter & Susan Nauta
