Catch Up

Dear Family and Friends,
It has been awhile since I have posted a family newsletter. Not because we haven't had anything to say, mostly because there is just too much happening!

Let's do a quick catch up. School year has officially ended for the boys. They are still finishing some course work, and will have summer school in science and math. James took his road test and passed, and now has an intermediate driver's license. Justin has been registered for driver's ed classes in August.

They both will have a summer job, spend a week at Living Waters Christian Camp, and then part of week there for Leadership Camp.

Ted stays consumed with his job, and tries to sneak in a few moments here and there for rest and family time. Many times I will ride around with him, just to spend some time with him, although he is working. I am still working part-time for my boss/landlord. My job category is secretary/property manager. It is not very time- consuming, so I have a few extra projects I want to work on this summer.

My parents have arrived from New York, and will be spending next week with us.
We had a family dinner with my brother Jon and his new wife Mia and our Uncle Bill. It was good to see them all again, and to meet Mia's children.

We all stay involved in our church ministries, and have really enjoyed God's lessons and blessings.

I had my surgery in April, and am recovering from that pretty well. The doctor will recheck me in September and will know by then if everything was a success. I might have side affects until that time. Already my migraines have lessened and a few other things that have bothered me, have been minimized due to the surgery. Thank God!!
On a silly note, someone, through Ted's work, rescued a litter of kittens from the side of a road. Needless to say, we adopted 2 of the babies. WOW, talk about craziness around here. Those two little spitfires are hilarious, but full of trouble! So we have 4 cats, and a dog who thinks he is a cat!

God is Great, life is good, yes, we miss Momma terribly, but with the signs of the times and grace from God we know it won't be long until we see Jesus and our precious Momma!
We are ready... are you ready?
There I have caught you up.. so until we meet again or are "Caught up in the air"... may God bless you and keep you all
Rebecca and family

Congratulations to Jon and Mia. I had no idea they had gotten married.

Kristi, they got married Easter Sunday Morning at a small family ceremony in Asheville. Mia has beautiful pics on her facebook page if you want to look there.
