It's really Momma who's hard at work!!!

Please allow me to brag on my wife and kids for a short amount of time. We are about to embark on a journey that is sort of like star trek - going where no Me and Erin's have gone homeschool land. Erin has been the most organized wife I have ever had and she has developed a schedule for chores in the morning and at dinnertime to help with the routine for when school starts. Anna Kate is a champ at emptying the trast and scrubbing the toilet. She's four years old and she can already clean the toilet for crying out loud. She is so proud. And Max is good at everything he learns. He just loves to have a job.

So I thought I would show you some action photos of supper tonight. Anna Kate got out the placemats before Max set the table. After we ate, Max swept the kitchen floor while Anna Kate scrubbed the placemats clean. If you don't believe me, look at these pictures. These are not posed pictures, they were taken during actual work.

Now, you may be thinking that Dad here doesn't do any work. This is not entirely true. Today I set up Jake's baby bed. WooHoo!!! Oh, and I played basketball with the kids and soccer with Dan Bragdon. But my wife and kids sure did work hard. Just thought I would give you a peek at the day to day activities here in the Gerlt house.

Sudoku - Taking the Gerlt House by Storm

I discovered this little game that is gaining in popularity, and my wife promptly made fun of me for playing it. The next day I came home from work and what did I see? Erin, playing Sudoku, admitting that she is addicted to it. I must say though, don't start it if you don't have time. Enjoy!


Play this fantastic puzzle game that is taking the world by storm!!

Cute Pregnant Erin

We have had a few requests for pictures of Erin. She is now 31 weeks pregnant (8 months) and she is all belly. Jake has been known to put on quite a show as he wiggles and moves all over. The pregnancy is going well and we are very thankful. Looks like Jacob Lane Gerlt will be here in late August.

After seven years of waiting, my sister finally had a little girl named Grace. As you can imagine, my parents are absolutely thrilled. The Lord is indeed faithful.
