Albrecht Happenings!

It's been awhile since my last post and of course lots of things have happened in that time. We celebrated Joel's 5th birthday! I can't believe he's 5! He had a scooby doo birthday party! He loved having all his friends and cousins over and of course all his gifts! :> He loves birthday parties! Joel is such an independent little guy! He has learned to use the microwave, which he was reminded that was only to be used if mommy was near and knew what he was putting in the microwave. I'm not really wanting to buy a new microwave just yet! :> He will start speech therapy this month, so we are excited for the changes we will see in Joel through that process. He is very excited because he gets to go to a "big" school for the therapy. He's always asking when he gets to go to kindergarten. He loves to do "homework". He received some workbooks for his birthday and Christmas so he has been busy working on those. Joel brings so much joy and laughter to our family. God continues to bless us with his sweetness and his stubbornness, which of course, he gets from his father. :>

Soon after Joel's birthday we celebrated Christ's birthday. Christmas was spent this year at home, it was a bit more relaxing, as we were not traveling. However, we dearly missed our family in Pennsylvania. We truly love going back for the holidays! During Christmas Dave was not feeling well, we thought it was just a virus, but it wasn't. It turns out he had pneumonia and bronchitis. On top of feeling horrible from all that he also had cracked a rib, so it was very painful for him. I've never seen him that sick. He is much better now and back to his old self, but it took him awhile to get back on his feet. I'm so glad he is better!

I'm excited to report that our basement is finished again, for the second time. :> We are really enjoying being down there, especially after a year of being unable to use the space.

We are actually preparing our house to put it up for sale. The process of selling a house is very exciting and scary. We have been in prayer about this and feel that God is leading us in this direction. We are looking at houses in the Zionsville area. We would like for the boys to go to public school next year, as private school will be a very expensive option for us. We will see where God leads us.

We hope that everyone is having a great start to 2010. We pray God's blessing on each one of you. We love you and can't wait until we see you all again. Love, Heather and the guys
P.S. Pictures coming!
