What's been going on?

So I'm going to try and blog at the end of the week to just give a brief update of what's been going on with us. Maybe this will help me be a better blogger :)
We just sent out our most recent prayer letter. I've also uploaded a link to it if you are interested in seeing it electronically.

The Elementary does the World's Fair every other year and it was fun to watch the kids prepare. Zach's class studied the United States, and Miriam's studied Slovakia. You can see the videos of their classes performing their songs on posts below. But here are some pics of them in their classrooms.

Zach was playing hide and go seek at a friends house and he decided to hide in the shower, when he tried to get out he pushed on the glass door and the hinge came off the top and fell right on his big toe. Needless to say there was a lot of screaming and crying, and instantly it started to turn purple. This is a picture of what it looked like 2 days later. We decided to take a little pressure off of it with a quilting needle and some paper-towels, and then on Monday at school it popped at recess. It's looking much better, and we've been told countless times how brave Zach is, but we still think he will lose the toe-nail. He's a tough one!

This weekend the middle schoolers performed the musical Aladdin and did a great job! It was fun to watch the talent of these young kids.

We are really looking forward to Thanksgiving with friends, enjoying some relaxing time with lots of good food! I'm sure there will be pictures to post of our feast. We would love to hear from you of how you spend Thanksgiving. I'm looking forward to the weekend too because we usually start to decorate for Christmas. Woohoo, it will finally be time for Christmas music!

Miriam's baptism

Miriam was baptized at church yesterday. We are so proud of her desire to show others that she loves the Lord and wants to follow Him.

Addison Road - What Do I Know Of Holy w/Lyrics

This is quickly becoming one of my favorite songs....

Back to Bon Bons and Soap Operas

Zach has officially started Pre-1st grade at ICSB. He is so excited to be doing everything that his sister does in the morning to get ready for school. But as he told me this morning he's glad he gets more play-time at school than she does! He's in a class with 8 other children and has a wonderful teacher who is also one of my friends. Makes for a very easy transition. Above is a picture from this morning as we were heading out. He informed me I needed to stand in the same place as when I take Miriam's first day pictures. We had a decent snow-fall last night so we're all bundled up. A little different than a normal first day picture in shorts and t-shirts :)

Here's a picture of me and Zach in his classroom. What a big kid, at least I was able to keep the rabbit ears down in this picture.
