2010 Christmas letter

Dear Family & Friends,

I hope this letter finds you well. I pray your Christmas was blessed as ours was. I also want to wish you a Happy New Year!

2010 has been a great year to our family. We have settled into our new house (we moved in one year ago) nicely. We are well into our homeschooling this year. And we have added two new family members this past year.

This year we put a new roof on the house (after decided our living room did NOT need a swimming pool.) The boys have decorated their rooms and have a place for all their toys and books. We tried a veggie garden, but either the soil, the very hot summer, or my green thumb netted us with less than fruitful results. In addition we have added a really cool tree fort (Scott helped the boys build it.) Things are really shaping up in our home.

Homeschooling is going well. Jason is 13 and in the 7th grade. Joshua is 7 and in the 2nd grade. We read lots of books. Jason likes to re-read his Harry Potter books as well as browse our encyclopedias. He also likes mysteries. Joshua likes Cam Jamsen books as well as the Moody Book series. We also meet up with other homeschooling families two days a week for history, science, art, and p.e. It is a huge blessing to be able to learn together (I learn so much too) and the bond I see in my boys is an added blessing.

My baby sister, Samantha gave birth to my nephew in May. Kaiden was almost 10 lbs. at birth and still is a big boy. He is now 7 months old and nothing but pure joy.

In Oct. we added another new member to our family, Lady, an Old English Sheep Dog. She is 6 years old. She is so much fun and so sweet. She is huge (67 lbs.) and much to Jason’s dismay enjoys sleeping in my room.

I have started a cleaning business called Green Clean. I use all natural, non toxic, biodegradable cleaning supplies to clean homes and offices. It allows me the flexibility to homeschool and still provide for our family. I also have a blog that chronicles some of our day to day and has lots of family pictures. I really enjoy writing and my blog allows me to keep up my writing skills.

We feel more blessed now then we ever have. God is so good. We have so many blessings and we count you and your family among those blessings. May you feel the love of God and discover His blessings throughout 2011.

Becky, Jason, & Joshua
