Well, lessee. I wasn't going to post either since it's been so long since I've been here! BUT - I loved reading about all of your children and "catching up" with some of you.
Kyle just turned 18 yesterday. He graduated this May and has been trying to get into the Marines. We keep getting held up by paperwork issues, but dh & I both feel that he WILL get in - eventually. He does not have a license or a job (besides weekly mowing at church) - he spent most of the past year cramming to get enough credits to graduate a year earlier than planned. HUGE history buff. Unfortunately, that subject is not on the ASVAB (military entrance exam) but algebra IS! Poor kid.
Megan is 16 now (will be a Junior) and has a PT job working for an all-natural residential cleaning company. She is VERY involved with Frontier Girls (National Girl of the Month in Feb!) and hopes to go to China as a missionary to an orphanage when she graduates in 2 years. We still haven't found a way to help her learn to read after years of several different programs, tutors and tricks. I told her China was a good idea then - no one ELSE can read Chinese either! Loves children, old fashioned things and senior citizens. Meg spends all of her free time volunteering.
Emily is 14 (Freshman this coming year) and very bright, but very unmotivated. Also involved in Frontier Girls, especially for the social interaction! No idea what she wants to do when she grows up, but is great with children and wants to be a councilor at diabetes camp when she's old enough. Makes stunning jewelry and just donated her entire stock to the Waldo Canyon Fire victims.
Hannah & Jay are both doing BY this year, Sarah & the Twinkies FIAR, and C-pher & Sean will do B4. So glad I've got a lot of 'Rowing left to do!
Katie, Wife to Mark (24 years!) and Momma to Kyle 19, Megan 17, Emily 15, Hannah 13, Jacob 10, Sarah 8, Ethan & Bryan 6, Christopher 4 & Sean Michael 2 & Audrey Rose 4/7/13! Missing our six Heavenly beauties. Happily using FIAR products since 1998!
