Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri

Jack

Yes, it is another Jack post.  Jack's life is an interesting book, even at the young age of 11.  The way he came into this life was only been by the hand of God (different post).  He has taken up karate, which seemed to be a stretch for him.  Jack has always been the quiet boy, never starting a conversation, and boy with few words.  When we introduce someone new to Jack, his only response is "Hi", and he walks away.  I did challenge Jack to say 30 words to my mother on our last 2.5 day visit to her house.  He was not successful.  Anyway...my point was...for him to take karate in front of strangers...well, I cannot comprehend that.  He loves it, so who am I to comprehend anything?  He signed up for an in-house tournament for last weekend.  It was a packed room.  He did his universals and received 3rd place.  Then came the sparring.  Let's just say it took everything I had to hold myself back from yelling, "Go Jack!  Hit him hard!  Harder!  In the head!"  Jack is only yellow belt, but he sparred the orange belts and received First Place.  I'm very proud of his success, but so much more proud of him getting in front of so many people and speaking.  I don't think I could have done such a thing at age 11.
