Merry Christmas from the Doerrs!
Another year has flown by and Brian and I have found ourselves wondering where the time has gone and whose big idea it was to have 7 children?! 2005 has been a good year, albeit extremely hectic. We love our large family, but find ourselves getting bogged down with family activities and an exorbitant amount of homework!
Mary starts high school next fall, and her homework load has picked up considerably. In addition to school, she dances, has a lead role in the school play, and played field hockey this past fall. Mitchell and Mason are both playing basketball and have joined in the tap craze. Madeline just earned a spot as a member of the North Carolina Youth Tap Ensemble (NCYTE) along with her big sis Mary. Mark started kindergarten this year and Matthew goes to preschool three days a week and then hangs out with Maisie and me at home the other two days. Speaking of Maisie, she’s almost walking! She’s 14 months old now and weighs a whopping 14 pounds 12 ounces!
Brian is still working for Duke and volunteering at church doing AV work and building our church website (christmethodist.org). I’ve continued my job as house manager and tutor extraordinaire in addition to directing the church Christmas Pageant and leading Madeline’s Girl Scout Troop. Nothing new there!
So that’s our life in a postcard. Please drop in when you’re in town. God bless you and your family this Christmas season. Make sure you take time out of your busy schedule to remember the miracle of Christ’s birth.
