For the year ending 12/31/2008....Hallelujah!

2008 was a year of learning for our family.

Nate learned to take his iron regularly and balance his physical outputs to keep healthy. He learned how to use voice recognition software to navigate the web. Facebook users now enjoy his witty insights on life.

Kim learned to go to the doctor the first time. Her empathy level has increased. A lot. She learned that parenting middle school boys is incredibly frustrating and an incredible joy...all at the same time. She is learning to overcome disappointment and try, try again.

Ben learned that he does have musical talent beyond Guitar Hero and plays the french horn in the band. He learned to stop asking mom and dad for money and got a job walking the neighbor's dogs. He IS learning to do his assignments and turn them in.

We all learned how to grow vegetables in Houston. Yummy!
We learned great locations for fossils in central Texas.
We learned to serve each other.
We learned that hurricanes are scary.

May the Lord bless you and your family in the coming year.
The Ottosens
