The 316 band opened for the Voice at a local youth rally. They did a great job leading the youth in worshiping the LORD.

Happy Birthday Isaac!

I can't believe my boy is 16! Where did all the time go...
Birthday dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings. 

I had planned on taking daytime pictures of him shooting hoops and flying through the air. But on Sunday he was blindsided during flag football and got a concussion. So he spent the day sleeping on the sofa. So I settled for this one after we came home from dinner.

Later in the week we had friends over to celebrate.

Back to School...

Today is the end of the second week of school. And I must say things have been running rather smoothly, despite all my worries. I am teaching an Introduction to ASL class at the homeschool enrichment program this year. We have a small class but I think it will be fun once we all get our bearings. The kids are doing science at home this year, and since we are working ahead in science I decided to let them do the book over two years which has reduced a lot of the stress from last year.

 Isaac started a new job working 10 hours a week at church. Unfortunately the grass is still growing so he still has his lawn jobs which means not a lot of time to rest. Basketball conditioning is keeping him busy but he still finds time to rock out on his guitar.

Isaac's Literature books  

Hannah is taking my ASL class and sewing and she still loves playing her violins and mandolin. She is my right hand at home. Keeping the house clean and getting dinner started if I am busy with basketball.
