If any of you are so priveledged to know my husband than you are aquainted with his determined spirit...some of you are laughing at this as you might recall the many times you were caught up in a project with him and he was determined to get it done...clearing brush...fixing a roof or getting a room re-done...but at least you got it done in record time....

Determination is a quality not many men possess. Why is that? What has happened to our country, society, families and the list can go on and on....

Our three boys have shown much determination this past week and we are so proud of them!
Last week our oldest accomplished a 100% on his science test. This is a huge accomplishment as this science is a very in-depth curriculum that requires determination and drive to master it! He was rewarded with ice-cream. Some may think that rewarding for a good grade is not necessary but if you knew the struggles and frustration he has gone through you might have joined us in our ice-cream celebration. It was wonderful that he was able to prove to himself that with determination you can accomplish great things!
Just today our "knight" was determined to learn to ride his bike with out training wheels...it took him all of 15 minutes to master it and then he was off down the driveway at record speed! I think he fell once but got back up and kept on going...
And last is our little guy who has accomplished a task that I'm so thankful for...going potty with out being told or taken...this took determination on mine and his part for the past weeks and now he just goes - I'm so thankful for this!

Hope you enjoyed the update! Hugs to all.
