Hello Everyone!!!! Can you believe the kids are going back to school already!! Wow, the summer break has flown by.

Good News: Construction on our new house will begin this week. The builder will be pouring the new concrete on the sides of the house (we are expanding a little). John and I have had a meeting to pick out the exterior materials for the house, the faucet fixtures, the windows, the doors and door handles, and sinks. We met with the flooring specialist, and we now have carpet and tile samples in our apartment. We are pretty much decided on what we want with those. Next we'll be picking out kitchen cabinets, counter tops, and appliance style and color. We are so excited to get things rolling!!!!

Apartment life can be somewhat cramped at times, but thank goodness we've been able to enjoy summer weather and activities a lot. Speaking of activities, the pictures above are from our awesome trip to see our close friends Kristen, JP, Kai, and Jacob Snyder in Smithville, MO. We went the week of the 4th of July and had a great time. We were so glad to see them and get to spend some much needed time away from Fort Wayne. On the way to their house, we also spent a few days in St. Louis. We went to the zoo, a Mets/Cardinals game at the Busch Stadium, visited the Arch, and the kids enjoyed a go-cart/fun spot Nascar place.

Logan will be in third grade this year, and he is very happy with the teacher he got. Logan just finished his soccer program with the Parks and Recreation and will start the Mini Dons soccer at IPFW in September.

Cayden will be starting kindergarten this year. We are very happy with the teacher he got. Cayden's a little disappointed he won't be able to start off the year riding the bus. Since we are in the apartment, close by Lima Road, it's quicker and closer to drive them to school.

We pray for a good school year and that the house will come along with little or no problems!!
We hope you all are doing well and are blessed with a safe and healthy start to the school year.

Love and Peace,

Jennifer, John, Logan, and Cayden
