Update on our Current Status

The last time I blogged it was about the robbery that took place here. I just wanted to give a little update on that situation. Glenn’s bike was found the next day because a 15 year old boy was riding it not too far from here. It is still at the police department being held as evidence but Glenn should get it back soon. Nothing else was recovered but the Lishawa’s computer was covered by their homeowners insurance so hopefully they will be able to get a new one sometime soon. We were phone-less for about 2 ½ weeks which was kind of annoying and kind of a blessing. We ended up signing another 2 year contract with Verizon and were able to keep our same numbers so you can now call us again if you want to. I was very frustrated with Verizon and was ready to just pay to get out of the last 2 months of our old contract but Davette at the Henrietta BJs Verizon kiosk redeemed Verizon for us. We got fun phones at a cheap price because of Glenn’s work discount and our credit for renewing. I am glad because we are still “In” and so much of our family is also.
We are currently still living at the Lishawa’s house. It has been such a blessing living here to us. The kids especially love their big room and the driveway to ride bikes on. The pictures are of the kids' room and the kids playing in the driveway. There are also cucumbers growing in the trees which is very fun! The 4 of us adults finally took the time to sit down and pray together on Monday night which is something that we really wanted to do as we started out living here and it was a blessing and a challenge to all of us.
Glenn’s application for med school is just about done and he has found a few research jobs at UofR that he is applying for. Hopefully we will start hearing back soon.
We will be starting homeschooling sometime next week. Dad’s burial is on Monday and I think that we are going to have a party on the first day of public school and go out and do something fun since we can J Caleb will be doing 3rd grade and Hannah will be doing 1st. I’ll be doing some preschool stuff with Lydia and Abigail as well so that they don’t wreck havoc all day.
If you have further questions about our status feel free to leave a comment or email me.
