VanD Family Update 10/18

with 3 comments

Hey All!  Sorry for the delay on posting this week.  I (Jeff) the primary writer of this amazing publication was out of town most of the end of last week at the second half of a WoodBadge (Scouting related) training.  It was amazing, but I was out there Thursday-Saturday.

So, I don’t have too much to post this week.  We are all just busy living the life of parents with growing kids.  A few points to talk about.

  1. It is getting colder here in Texas finally! A few days last week we had to actually put on jackets when we went to get Joseph from Seminary in the morning.
  2. Cooler weather makes it nice to go outside and sit on the porch.  Debbi bough some cool chairs and we have a front porch that we try to go out on often.  If we can’t find the kids they are likely outside reading on the porch… that is pretty cool to see.
  3. Our home continues to be filled with awesome piano music.  I love coming home and hearing the piano playing.  The kids are all getting so amazing!
  4. Joseph’s school had homecoming last week.  The band rocks, oh, and I guess that pregame show they have before halftime is also doing pretty well (which makes it fun for the band). joseph-band
  5. On Saturday his band got straight 1’s at the UIL competition.  That means they are going to district this weekend and if they do well they will be able to complete in state down in San Antonio…. it’s a big deal folks… remember how huge Texas is… 🙂
  6. This weekend at WoodBadge we came up with patrol flags.. I was thinking about how cool it would be to have a family flag and chatted with the kids about it last night.  They stayed up late and drew up some design ideas last night… it was way cool to see the stuff they put on there.  Family vacations.  Dinner at Grandma’s, PJ’s for Christmas… 5:30am scripture study (there was an alarm clock on one of them)… it’s the little things that create the memories for everyone.  I’m looking to order some leather hide online so we can make up our family flag… stay tuned.  I’m sure it will be awesome.  Here is me and my patrol flag at Woodbadge.  20151016_18514220151016_185153

That’s all I got right now… just trying to keep my hands and arms inside the ride!  Love you all!
