Happy Holidays to everyone! It has been a happy and eventful year for us.
As you all know we ended 2003 with Scott racing towards his final semester of school and Sarah very pregnant. I am pleased to announce that both of those have come to a happy conclusion.
On March 30 at 11:38 and 32 seconds we welcomed Abigail Elizabeth to our family. She was 6 lbs, 12oz and 19 ½ inches long. Sarah was induced around 7:00am and progressed quickly, after deciding to do some paper work around 11:15am, the doctor barely made it back to deliver Abby at 11:39am. Abby is a spitting image of her brother at this age, and is trying very hard to keep up with him!
Jonah could not be more excited to be a big brother. He can always get a smile or a laugh out of his sister and can’t wait for her to grow so they can play more. Jonah is continuing his speech therapy, working on pronunciation twice a week at the local elementary school, and his teacher says that he is doing great. We are able to understand more words every day.
In May, Scott finally accomplished his long-standing goal of completing his Bachelors’. He now has a degree in religion with a bible emphasis and a minor in history. He is busy applying to graduate schools so that he can start work on his Masters’ next Fall.
In June, Sarah accepted a position at a law firm in Oklahoma City as the Legal Secretary / Office manager for the firm. She works with three lawyers who are all Christians. The office stays very busy, but is a pleasant work environment.
In August, we moved into a nice 4-bedroom house in Oklahoma City. We are all enjoying the extra space and the back yard to play in!
We think of our family and friends often and hope that not only has this last year been a good one for everyone, but that next year will continue to be so. Our love to all!
