Our boys enjoyed an hour of herdsmanship.
Pretty exciting, huh?

Today is our one year mark of being out of ministry. It is hard to believe that a whole year has gone by already. This time in our life has been longer than expected, but looking back on it, we have learned.......
....the art of asphalt seal coating :) and all the ins and outs of setting up your own business.
....lots of construction stuff (I even learned a few things by visiting the job site so often!)
....the value of a father's home time. It has been hard to be as involved as we were when attending every church function was part of BJ's job. Family time in the evenings and on Saturdays goes by so quickly. When back in ministry, we don't want to waste our congregation's time....having activities for the sake of having them or the expectation that everyone should be there supporting it.
....a greater appreciation for a pastor's day off. I miss having BJ home on Mondays.
....how other churches do things. It has been fun to visit different churches when BJ was asked to fill in.
....that daddy still ministers to others - even when he isn't paid to do it.
....how to wake up earlier in the mornings. :) (Especially BJ starting work at 6am.)
....or re-learned the blessings of a new baby...and the time and energy required. :)
....all about rabbits and 4-H. (FYI- they reproduce very quickly!)
