Why 5 boys and a girl

You may ask yourself, "Self, why does Janet call this blog, 5 boys and a girl?" When I started this blog a few years ago, it was my own way of keeping account of the happenings and sayings of our children. At the time, it was 5 boys and a girl. But in God's timing, He decided it was time for one of our boys to go home to be with him. It was two years ago that our oldest boy, Cory, passed away. God in His good and great character was sooo gracious to us and continues to be. We are so thankful for the time we had with Cory while on this earth and look forward to seeing him once again in heaven. Heaven, where he will be whole, perfect and "not broken" anymore.

picture of my wonderful family

I have nothing new to post but thought I would post a picture of my wonderful family.
I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family who loves me in spite of my failings and short falls (and believe me there are many). They are an example of Christ's love for me, just as I am. :)
aren't they a great looking bunch?

Obviously, I haven't posted in a while. I read so many other peoples blogs. They are all such good writers and have such wonderful things to say. One of the reasons that I don't write often. I can't figure out how to post pictures or links. I will work on that. I would love to write about all the wonderful things I am learning about God but I struggle just to keep up with my daily bible reading. I know I am learning but it is hard to reduce it to writing. I have been quite busy with Real Estate lately. Praie the Lord!!! I have several people looking for houses so that is a real encouragement. I really enjoy it. I think I get more excited than the actual buyers do when they receive an accepted offer on a house. The kids are great. Nothing funny to report. Give me time though. One thing to brag about though---Colby came in 2nd place in his school's spelling bee. He is in 2nd grade. He gets his brains from his father. :) Guess that is all for now. I will try to post again soon if I can think of anything to share.
