Since I haven't recently done an update on everyone I thought I would fill you in on a few tidbits about what's going on in our lives...
The company that Bryce has worked for for 13 years was bought by a much larger company. It was truly an exceptional company to work for and it's been rather sad to see it get disbanded. It was such a blessing to us in many ways and Bryce will very much miss being part of it and working with his colleagues, many of whom he considers dear friends. It will be interesting to see what is next on the horizon (he will probably be needed until June when they close up shop here).
Harris can literally not seem to stop moving. He is constantly tumbling, cartwheeling or rolling around! So much so that I've considered breaking my vow of the past 9 years- that we will never have a trampoline. Or maybe I'll just sign him up for Gymnastics.
Grace is struggling with school. She is doing great with the actual academics of school, she just doesn't like going to school. We are trying to figure out how to help her in this area. It's frustrating for her and for us.
Did I tell you that she got a Nook for Christmas? Navigating the Nook has been interesting so far. She recently accidentally bought the book, "Finding God in the Land of Narnia." She was looking up The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis and this book also popped up. She thought she was reading the "sample" but bought it instead. So of course, she decided to read it. You have not lived until your 9 year old starts discussing with you why Aslan is actually a Jesus figure. I kid you not.
I recently stripped the wallpaper from the children's bathroom and repapered it (at least there is one future blog post!). My friend, Gretchen, helped me paper it and we laughed a lot, which made me happy.
