Welcome to our family blog!

We are Mike (Dad), Kathie (Mom), Sarah, Maggie, Anna, Lizzie, Allen and Ruthie. We love the Lord and enjoy being a homeschooling family.

Sarah and Maggie have graduated and are attending our local community college.

We enjoy music, especially singing. We also play a variety of instruments including piano, violin, cello, trumpet, french horn, ukulele (all of us), pennywhistle, flute, mandolin, banjo, dulcimer and guitar.

Our favorite music is conservative, Christian music. We also listen to Celtic and Western music (also known as Cowboy music as song by Roy Rogers and the Sons of the Pioneers). Sarah enjoys opera.

The best part of family life is having guests over for fellowship, especially huge bonfires out in our field. Marshmallows, baked beans and hotdogs, lots of like-minded friends, an unsaved friend or two, lots and lots of children, and what a night! While the children are rolling each other around the field in a big barrel, the parents are sharing what God is doing in their lives. Everyone goes home feeling edified and refreshed.

Come along with us on our journey through this life and let us encourage each other as we go.

Today we had temperatures near 80 degrees, which is warmer than usual. Tonight the children are all smiles as they gather tents and sleeping bags to go camp out on the "back forty." Actually they are laughing since they know that by dawn, all six of them will be crowded into one tent for comfort and warmth!

Many blessings ~ Kathie
