Our life is nothing short of an adventure...

Wind in our hair and screams of delight but also unpredictable turns and unknown outcomes. We are a family of six; Dave, Susie, Nate, Jake, Sam, and Bella.

God has been faithful in our marriage and through the birth and blessings of our boys.

God has been faithful during our adoption journey and united Bella with us in May of 2008. We were privileged to visit with Bella's birth mother; therefore, Bella's family in Guatemala will always be dear to our hearts.

On October 16, 2008, Bella was diagnosed with ALL Leukemia. We are now battling the disease with 2 years and 3 months of treatment. We believe God will continue to be faithful!

Our family is committed to living life to the fullest...even on the hard days. Thank you for checking in and journeying with us!

Sweet Child O Mine!

Oh ya.....these our boys! Are they awesome or what?!!! I am so incredibly proud of Nate and Jake as well as their other band members Luke and Brian. They performed for their school last Thursday for the middle school and rocked them out. Nate is the guitarist (black hat with purplish shirt on) and Jake is the drummer. The boys actually performed the same song twice as the first performance was for "You Tube". The second performance was because the kids were screaming for more and the teachers approved. Nate and I worked on a mix of both those videos. They had way too much fun that day and so did I. I am one proud Mama.

Oh. my. goodness. You SHOULD be one proud mama! I had tears in my eyes listening to that--I'm beaming with pride too and they're not even my kids! Wow--I feel like I should get their autographs so I can say I saw them play before they became famous!

Wow! They sound great. What talent...hope they keep up the good work. Maybe I'll see them on TV one day and say, "I read all about them growing up."

My Brian has such a skill for the piano, but just tinkers on it and won't take lessons....I wish he would.

So cool Susie! I sure wish we lived closer, Dylan loves to sing, he could help in that department and is taking guitar lessons! He'd love to have friends to do a jam session with!
Tell your guys they ROCK!!

The Burk Family said...

Wow! No wonder they all were SCREAMING for More! You've raised some talented boys! One day, I'm sure they will be using their gift to further God's Kingdom!

In the future, we may be taking the youth Group to see Nate and Jake's band rather than Kutless! :)

Rock on Boys!
