So I then got over the grief of not having another little one to be a mom to by packing and getting ready to move into our own new to us home.
Then it was time for fall. Jake started maternelle; kindergarten for us English speaking folks.
Jake likes school and is speaking more and more french all the time. He's a whiz at paper airplanes and no paper is safe with him around. He took skating lessons and swimming lessons this past year; learning to do both quite well. His kindness for others amazes me all the time. Most recently his favorite person to play with is the little girl in his class that hurt her leg and has a cast, when I ask why, he tells me it's because she can't go play with everyone else. Jake's knowledge of God already amazes me all the time. I just have to share a picture of his gift to his teacher. He decided to paint a rainbow on the board and then we put a "B" on it for his teacher's name. The back of the board is really the treasure though.
Christmas was very fun this year because we got to spoil CJ with gifts, something that I was really looking forward to. As you can tell in the picture she was completely shocked by her gift of a camera.
So as I reflect on this year God moved some mountains and blessed us abundantly and for that I'm thankful. So to whomever reads my blog I hope that you too step out on a limb and ask God to move a mountain for you and have the faith that He can in fact move that mountain for you if you believe and trust.
