Still behind on the updates. We are all doing well. Elijah is loving school. We had a little water damage from our washing machine. Apparently washers do not like to wash pull-ups. Not sure exactly what the part is called, but the pull-up filler clogged it and then the water came out of the washer too fast for the pipes and flooded the laundry room. Not too bad, easy enough to clean up. What we did not know was that the water had gone under the baseboards into our closet and bedroom. Of course this was in areas that we do not walk in and did not know it was wet until I began to smell it. I searched and searched, but could not find the smell. Doug was moving some boxes in the floor of the closet when he found the MOLD. YUCKY MOLD!!! Our insurance is covering new sub-floors, flooring, and repairs to HVAC and cleaning of the duct work for mold. We upgraded our flooring to tile and hardwood!!! It looks great. Since it was so new and pretty, I decided to paint the bedroom, bath, and closet. I am still painting and may be painting for a long time!!!! I will try to update more later!!!
We are a family of five who have been blessed by God. Doug and I were married in 2002 and immediately wanted to start a family. God blessed us with our son Elijah in 2003 through the beauty of birth. Elijah loves to play outdoors and to play with his Nitendo. We were blessed with Sarah in 2007 through the beauty of adoption. Sarah has Down syndrome, but is not defined by it. She is proving all of the statistics wrong and is growing and achieving at a record pace. We were blessed with Isaac in 2010 to complete our family. He is also adopted and has Down syndrome, excited to watch him grow!! Doug is a utility forester with the local utility company. I, Robyn, am a stay at home mom who is never at home. I am a Young Living Essential Oils Independent Distributor and I love my oils! Elijah in the sixth grade and loves all things mindcraft and Star Wars. Sarah is 9 and in the 2nd grade. Isaac is almost 5 and doing preschool work. We are a homeschooling family that lives life to the fullest. I love my life and I am so blessed.
