Mr. Amstutz's 8th Year

Matt is finishing his 8th year of teaching tomorrow! I thought I would show what a talented hubby I have. When he took this job the kids were making candlesticks. Now look at what they do!

I wish I could show close up pictures of the projects so you could see how nice they are. But you can either read the kid's names or they're in the picture. But he's a talented teacher!

"God says our first steps are to be toward Him: seeking His face, following His laws, putting Him first and self-centered pursuits last. When we line up with Him, He leads the way and all we have to do is follow. As we look to Him, the glory of His image gets imprinted upon us. When our self-image gets so wrapped up in God that we lose ourselves in the process, we're free."

Graduation Weekend

Friday after school we left for Anderson, IN to spend the night and attend Jake and Kate's graduation.

Luke had lots of fun that night. Jake and Kate were swimming at the hotel when we got there, so the three of us put our suits on and joined them. Luke wasn't too sure what he thought at first, but ended up having a blast. Afterwards he got a warm bath and pizza at 9:00 at night which is normally his bedtime. PARTY! He was having so much fun he decided to stay up until 10:45! Yikes! Then at 5:45am he joined Matt and I in our king size bed for the rest of the morning. Although there was plenty of room he insisted on laying some part of his body on me the whole time. Head, butt, feet...didn't matter to him as long as he was with mommy.

The next day we went to Jake and Kate's graduation and Luke did fantastic. It was fun seeing Jacob Stephen Habegger and Katie McKenzie Habegger listed in the program together. And Kate graduated with honors also! Afterwards we celebrated by going out to eat with everyone. My family, my grandparents and Kate's family.

It wasn't much fun saying bye to Jake and Kate as they headed to Richmond, VA for Kate's grad school. But we are excited for them to try something new and are hoping we can find cheap flight tickets for this summer!

Luke just fell asleep on my shoulder as I was checking my email. I am so thankful for my little snuggle bug. How wonderful...
