Had fun with this crew rocking hairnets and packing meals to send to Panama at Connection Pointe Christian Church. Always great when you can get friends to come along and help.

The Fall Blaze running season started this week. Emerson decided to join the 3K group as a third grader. Elias is in the 1-mile group. I love that my whole family is involved.

Some end of the year ďawardsĒ. Elise was voted most likely to talk to random animals, Elias got the Elephant award for bringing a ton of fun and life to everything you do, Emerson got the always on time award, and both boys got gold medals at the end of Blaze (junior running). Elias got a cool paper that his friends wrote things about him and Emerson got a framed picture of a runner with all of the words his friends said about him. Just a fun way to end the year.

We heard a noise outside last night just before 10 PM and saw that the weight of the wet snow on the tree branches with full Spring leaves and flowers was too much.

We did Running of the Bulldogs 5K this morning as a family. Emily encouraged Emerson and ran with him and they both ended with a time of 27:39 (Emily enjoyed coaching Emerson and taking it slow), Davidís time was 27:48 (but Emily was embarrassed that he spoke with everyone along the way), Eliseís time was 37:33, and I fought with/pushed Elias along for a time of 38:11. Elias decided before the first mile he was done. The turning point for him was when almost at the end someone told him there were donuts. He ran through the finish line and kept going straight to the donuts.

Another season of Blaze started tonight. David is helping coach, Emerson and Elias are running, and Elise and Emily are junior coaches. Emily had her second track meet of the season and couldnít be there tonight, but is looking forward to helping out on Thursday.

Today was egg dyeing day. One kit was for glitter eggs and the other a spin egg set. We pretty much failed on both of them, but the kids had fun.
April 1, 2021
The second part of our Tennessee trip we spent in Dollywood. Emily is a huge Dolly Parton fan! Lots of rides and eating. Elias made us stop at the chapel in Dollywood and pray before we could continue.

Back from our trip to Tennessee. The first part we spent at a ranch on Dunlap. We got to experience life on the farm. Morning chores started nice and early with cleaning the stalls and feeding the animals. We also milked the cow and gathered the eggs. Then it was breakfast and back to work separating the milk from the cream and making cheese. The older 3 also took horseback riding lessons. Lots of animal visits and enjoying walking around the area.

Happy New Year!! We had a crazy fun time with some family last night. The girls made some memorable videos and sang until Emily lost her voice. We toasted in the new year at about 8:30 and kicked out 2020 a little early because I like sleep. David and the girls stayed up, but the boys and I were fast asleep at midnight.

A very merry Christmas from the Bakerís. My kids are extremely spoiled. We got to have a special visitor this week Gypsy (Davidís niece-dog).

Connection Pointe did an amazing Christmas service last night. It was raining so we rode the golf cart to the door. The girls said they felt like royalty. We had an entire balcony section to ourselves so when the boys made noise we didnít have to worry about them disturbing anyone else. In these dark times it is great to remember that Jesus is the light of the world.
December 18, 2020
We did it!!! We made it through the first semester of school with no quarantines. They started school July 30th and have had in person school the entire time. I am so grateful for all of the teachers, bus drivers, and administrators that made it possible. The boys bus driver was even dressed as Mrs. Claus when she picked the boys up yesterday. So fun!!

I had some wonderful helpers yesterday get the inside of the house decorated for Christmas.
November 26, 2020
We had a great thanksgiving! The girls helped out so much with making the meal this year. They learned when all else fails add more butter. Emily and I got a walk to Eagle Creek in while the turkey was cooking. We also squeezed in some family visits and got to play and love on their dogs.
November 20, 2020
Finally talked David into putting up the outside lights. I love Christmas decorations!! We all pitched in and got most of it done this evening. Now time to decide what new inflatable we need to add this year.

Halloween started with a 5K run for David, Emily, and Emerson. They all had a great time and a fun run. Emily finished first out of our family with a time of 23:41 (came in 2nd place for females), Emerson finished next with a time of 26:19 (finished 28th out of 145) and David finished with a time of 27:24 (finished 36 out of 145). PR for Emerson!! Then they went out trick-or-treating! We had Elias the creeper, Emerson the x-wing starfighter, Emily as Harry Potter, and Ean the foot.

Great trip to the property in Paoli. The kids were always looking for creatures of any kind. They found some frogs, a turtle, a little lizard, caterpillars, and fish. The deer and rabbits could hear the loudness of the kids and would run (smart animals). They pretty much ate the entire time we were there. They enjoyed exploring the creek beds and everyone but Elias enjoyed a long hike through the property. Dale even had some time to get some mowing done while we were there. No trip would be complete without a stop at The Superburger.

The Blaze season came to an end last night. Emerson and Elias ran a 3K this week (time of 14:22 Emo and 21:24 Elias). We are so proud of them. They received their end of season medals for total miles ran this 8 weeks yesterday. Elias ran 31.25 miles and Emerson ran 54.25 miles earning Emerson the highest distance runner for the younger kid group. Emily and Elise also made a best friend this season that they loved talking to and running with as junior coaches.
October 2, 2020
The boys had their team meet last night. Emerson placed 1st (time of 7:18) and Elias placed 7th (time of 9:29) in the one-mile run. They both had a great time and have shown a lot of growth this season. The girls had a great time helping out and playing around in the woods. Coach David was grateful to get through another meet without needing a defibrillator.
