starting a club.

Half my kids have fever’s and I’m sure the other half will have it soon. Thankfully all the sickies just want to lay on the floor and watch movies ALL day. They have been super easy patients. 

I’ve really hated the fact that I haven’t blogged very much at all lately since it makes me feel like all the memories of my kids aren’t being recorded. And since I got a new computer for Christmas, I can’t use my old computer working too slow as an excuse anymore.

Besides that, we’ve had a really good start to a new year. So many ‘new things’ in our life which I’ll save for future posts. But I will still have to go back in time to record the months I’ve been gone from blogging. 

And can you believe that Jace will be a year old next week? He is the sweetest thing. A real Mama’s boy. I love it. Perfect as pie, except for him still waking up a few times at night to nurse. Ha!

And has anyone seen Woodlawn? My favorite movie right now! I recommend it to everyone. It really gave me an urgency for Chris to start a Christian club at his school where he has so many relationships with his students and most of the kids on the football and basketball teams. 

So without wasting any time, we announced it and put a flyer on Parker’s social media page along with one of the football coaches and a girls soccer coach doing the same. 

Parker and Ethan handed out 100 flyers during lunch time along with some of his football teammates who wanted to help. Amazing. All in a few days. That first meeting the next day, there were 45 kids in attendance for Club 116. So awesome.

It’s funny because a lot of the guys who showed up were the same ones we fed for pregame meals and Chris spoke to/preached to during the season. Please pray for these young men and women. 

I could testify on this post all night long of how God is good, but like I said, I will save it for another day. Right now I just want to keep it short and make blogging a habit once again…..

I've missed your blogs so much! I check every day to see if there is a post :) Seriously, the kids all look so much more grown up, in the two months we haven't seen them, especially Jace and Tallulah!
