Well, a lot has happened since I actually wrote a new blog. Fischer had his 1st Birthday Party. He shared and celebrated it with his 84 year old Great-Grandpa! He told me that Fischer is the 5th person in the family to have that birthday. Weird, huh?

It's hard to believe that Fischer is 1. So much has changed in our lives in the past year. Sometimes we will be driving down the road and think...Where are we again?? Oh yeah, we live in Nebraska. We feel truly blessed to have a beautiful healthy child and a new church family that continues to amaze us.

We left Fischer over night for the first time last night. As we drove off from the place he was staying, I felt as if we were not a whole family. Although I was excited about being able to enjoy a night out, I really felt misplaced. I wonder if this is how people feel who do not know Christ. Like something is missing...like they are not whole. I can't imagine being without a church family or without the hope we have in Heaven! Last night we were at Wal-Mart and I started talking to this girl about MOPS(a ministry we have at church to reach out to moms), and she told me how she was looking for a church to go to. My point is that people are out there, people who are searching...but do we take the time to find them or do we pass up countless opportunities to reach out? I know I pass up way to many...how about you?

Sorry it's been so long since my last post...life has been crazy. I've been out of town and we are having company for the next two weeks!

Fischer is officially walking now! He just decided on Wednesday that walking was much better than crawling.

I accepted a job today at the church pre-school. I am excited to earn a little extra cash to help pay for our health insurance, but I am also sad that I have to go back to work. It is a very ideal situation however...a friend is going to watch Fischer until he can attend the pre-school with me. So, by December he will be going to work with me...can't beat that!!

I posted a picture of Fischer golfing at grandma's house. He is already a pro...he has the stance down and everything.
