Time To Start Blogging Again

It has been so long since I have blogged on here. I have been meaning to so many times but never get around to it. Life in the Groen house has been very busy lately. As many of you know any day now Baby Groen # 5 is due to come into this world. We are all very anxiously awaiting she or he's arrival. We have been praying since we found out in July about this new little one that God would once again bless us with a baby girl. Don't get me wrong we will be thrilled with a boy but we really miss having a little girl in the house. We still to this day talk about Lindsay and how much we miss her. Case has been very into her lately which warms my heart every time he talks about her. If you ask him he will tell you her name which comes our Windsay :) and that she is his sister. Let me tell you it's so neat to hear him talk about her. We look forward to some day soon telling him and Wyatt more about her.

I will give you a quick update on the boys. Tanner is now in 1st grade and we are home schooling him. He likes school but doesn't love it. He would rather spend the whole day playing with Case and Wyatt. He goes to Awana at our church every Tuesday night and he loves going. He has been into building legos and is always found coming up with some sort of craft for him and Case to make. Hard to believe he will be 8 this year.

Case is 2 and is our little lover. He is always ready to give you a great big hug and kiss just when you need it. He loves Tanner and is always asking Tanner what they should do next. He likes to copy Tanner in everything :). We have been starting to do a little bit of potty training with him and he is starting to get the hang of it. He has been really curious lately with the baby. He is going to be a big helper when the baby comes.

Wyatt is 1 and a ball of energy. He is walking now and he is all over the place. He loves to try and play with Tanner and Case when he can. He is starting to say a few words but mostly talks in his own language with some really funny grunts. He has the greatest facial expressions and sounds. He enjoys just walking around getting into what ever he can. He knows what he wants and when he wants it.

I got a call from my Dad last night and he shared something with me that was a good kick in the pants to start writing again. He was at a funeral last night and a lady came up to him and told him that he didn't know her but she had been following Lindsay's blog from the beginning. The other night this lady was having trouble sleeping and decided to come to the blog and read from the beginning. What ever this lady was going through that night she was ministered to. So that is a good way to give me a kick in the pants to get going again. You might have to be patient with me but I am going to try and get this going again.

We have been truly blessed this year and last year. God continues to meet us just where we need to be met. Lindsay's story still goes on and is still helping people. I will leave you with a few prayer requests; 1. For Baby Groen and me during the next few days. 2. Jon isn't trucking any more and is searching for work. Pray that God will show him just where he wants us to be. 3. That Keswick will be able to raise enough money to get the new Lindsay Bear playground going and hopefully be ready for this summer. I will write another post on that later. But if you would like to donate money for the playground you can go to; Scroll down to the give now button. Make sure you say that you want your donation to go to the playground.

Thanks again for continuing to pray for our family.
