In the two years that have passed since our last blog entry, obviously, there is much that has changed in our family. Joshua, who we introduced in our last post is now about to turn 2-years-old. He is lively, talkative, and acts much older than his years. He is a loving big brother to our newest addition, Zane Isaac, who was born into our family on February 10, 2012.
We continue to home educate our four older children as well, and have begun a new adventure this year through joining a new Classical Conversations community which has begun in San Antonio. Beth is working her way through the Challenge A level of Classical Conversations, while Emily, Jeremiah and William are pursuing mastery of the CC Foundations Cycle-1.
We have also joined a start up 4-H club which meets in our neighborhood and are looking forward to the opportunities for new experiences that 4-H will provide. Projects of particular interest around our home are poultry (we currently care for a flock of 6 hens, 1 rooster, and 13 chicks whose gender is yet to be determined.)
We continue to attend Luling Primitive Baptist Church on a regular basis whenever Joseph is not committed to preach at other locations. Joseph preaches each Sunday evening at the West San Antonio Primitive Baptist Fellowship where we are pursuing a study through the book of the prophet Isaiah (currently in Isaiah 27) and alternate Tuesday evenings at the Seguin Primitive Baptist Fellowship.
We appreciate the prayers and friendship of many of you who have emailed and/or used social networking sites to keep up with our family for the past couple of years. It is our intent to revive the use of our website and blog page to provide routine updates and a forum to share our thoughts, struggles, and adventures in parenting, schooling, and pursuing God’s direction in our lives as we strive to live for his glory and praise.
Joseph, Rachel, Beth, Emily, Jeremiah,
William, Joshua and Zane Isaac Weyel
