Well we won't talk about how long it took me to get on here. Let's just say that I really like Facebook. However, what is the point in having a blog if you don't use it. I enjoy many other peoples blogs, so it is time I get busy with my own.

We are doing well here in Las Vegas. God continues to bless the church with new souls to teach and help. Our city isn't very good though, more crime and murders everyday it seems. This week a few blocks away from our home, a man was killed. It makes me especially thankful that God is watching over our family and His church, even in a wicked city. We do love our "winter" weather though. Nice with only long sleeves needed, walks, biking, scootering, etc. We can do it all right in January.

Sarah is doing great in high school, yes, she really is in high school. It is a virtual school, k12 as is Nathan. She continues to improve with the piano, she takes after her grandmas, they all play well! Nathan is taking 2 high school classes and is doing so well. He went on his first hunting trip this year which was a big highlight for him. Now he wants to gain weight and get stronger. He is going to be tall and skinny, just like my dad. Everybody else is watching their weight, but not Nathan, he cheers when he gains! Deborah is our prolific writer of stories and poems. She is growing up and learning what it means to be a young lady, which isn't always fun! She is still so full of life and fun! Stephen is doing very well too, he loves to read, the Bible and Boxcar Children are his favorites. Thanks Grandma for sending those library sale ones to us! He is ready for baseball to begin next month too.

John and I are busy as usual, but it is a good busy. He continues to work in the Operations at UPS, and for the Church at Las Vegas. 2010 was full of new conversions and lots of teaching. His health is good, he keeps plugging away with his enthusiasm about Jesus, and powerful preaching. I am enjoying school with the kids, I learn so much. I also have been teaching the ladies class and the young ladies here in Vegas which is a pleasure for me. I continue to hunt for good bargains wherever I can get them. Coupons, forthemommas.com, bread store, etc. It is a game for me to stretch that dollar as much as I can. I may not make money for my family, but I sure save my husband a lot of money.

So that is how we are. A little late in coming, but I will do better. God bless each of you in 2011.
