We Love to Dance!!

Georgia and Virginia have started taking ballet lessons after preschool each week. They are so excited to get up every Wednesday to go to school. It is quite a long day for them, but they don't care. I help them get their backpacks loaded with their school folders, lunch boxes and ballet attire; then off they go. What a sight it is to see all the little girls "dancing" in their pink tu-tu's and tights. They absolutely LOVE it. I can't wait until the recital in May.

Marshall has decided to try baseball once more. After two years of T-ball early on, he decided that it was not for him. Being in the outfield in a game where the players can't hit hard enough yet to get it to you was not his idea of a fun time. But, thanks to a friend across the street who loves to play sports, Marshall has decided to try again. We are so proud of him. Last week he had a scrimage game where he hit two doubles. He was BEAMING from ear to ear when he was running the bases. It really gave him an extra boost of confidence.

Marshall's first game was Monday, September 10th. His team was victorious over the Jefferson Braves. He hit a double and two singles. Needless to say, he was very excited!!! The next night the team was victorious again over the Jefferson Mets. What a great start for the season!!!


Everyone is off to a great start for the school year. Marshall is now in second grade. Georgia is in K4 preschool where she attends 5 days a week, and Virginia is now in K3 where she attends 3 days a week. All three kids are at Bethlehem Christian Academy this year. The change in schools is a HUGE answer to prayer in so many different ways. The driving alone was a booger these past two years. And, the change in teaching environments and philosophy has really made a difference as well. Needless to say, we are all very excited to be there and can't wait to see what great things God has in store for us there. And, Marshall is very glad to have his sisters with him at the same school. They are right down the hallway from each other.
