Last week we were blessed with the opportunity to stay at the mission house of Heritage Baptist Church.
Dad & Mitchell flew home Monday & began the flight back to Georgia on Wednesday. Unfortunately they had plane trouble and ended up staying in Chicago overnight and finally arriving back with us on Thursday morning. Thankfully they made it in time for our concert-we were not excited about the thought of doing it w/o them!
Saw this sweet sight one morning as I was walking past the open bedroom door.
my parents have greatly encouraged us children to establish the habit of daily personal Bible reading. This got established with us older ones and by the time the younger ones came along their main reason for wanting to learn how to read was so they could join us older ones in Bible reading each morning. So precious.

music practice...mom gave prizes over the three days there for the most schoolwork accomplished & the most music practiced. With our Bontrager competitiveness there was music going, and schoolbooks out, CONSTANTLY!
We've been working on teaching our guys more housekeeping skills.
They are doing a great job and are well on their way to being able to, in a pinch, be proficient bachelors. =)
(none of them feel the calling of bachelorhood, though. =))
