We've had most of the kids and dad sick....two were left standing. One of those darling boys was scheduled for day surgery too! We are so grateful he stayed healthy!
Dad is off traveling across country for work, sick kids and a surgery in the middle of the week....surgery two hours away in the middle of snow that mounted to about 7 inches. We returned home late that night tired but grateful to see the bright lights coming up the hill! The cool thing?? We pulled into a cleared driveway. The troops were rallied...those that were healthy...to clear the driveway by big sister when she returned from work.
Everyone is on the mend and dad is on his way home in the morning...busy, yes! Impossible? No...totally awesome to be a part of this team! Go team Lowman!

Catching Up On Our Fall....
It seems we blinked and and we are in October already! Time is soaring by but it is good.
We've spent our fall entrenched in our studies…books, projects and the great out doors makes for an exciting school day where everyone falls into bed at night…happy and healthy.
Here is one of our first day of school photos…
We've been hiking a bit more…
To our beloved Deerfield fair….
Horse back riding, Maranatha fun day…we did a ride up to see the beautiful NH color on the Kangamungas Highway…that was spectacular! We've been entrenched in a few service projects too.
Our kiddos have made big strides….one was diagnosed with dyslexia this summer. We've done intense work with him and during our group read aloud….he recently requested a book. He said, “Mom, its like magic in my head when I read. I can see the picture in my mind,”. How cool is that? Seriously? It makes all of the hard work that we put in this summer with school pay off….a beautiful thing.
We are missing Jason as he zooms across the country with the International Alert Mobile Response Unit. He has been on the front lines to some of the disasters, met some amazing ministry leaders working out there, was in the same room as Vice President Mike Pence and Franklin Graham and is currently working in Pennsylvania at a Father Son Leadership Conference…one that he was an attendee last year with his own dad. He is loving his adventures but says he is ready to come home. We are excited for all that the Lord had provided for him…it has grown and stretched him in so many ways. We are so grateful for the Alert Cadet and Alert programs and the influence it has had on our families.
Well…that's all for now. Hoping to catch up here a bit more regularly. Happy Fall Ya’ll!

We have had an amazing summer….
Sometimes you don't even realize what you need until you reflect back on what you've walked through….our days have slowed down this summer without chasing paperwork.
We have had sunny days filled with…
Trips to Canobie Lake
Wilderness Camp and VBS
We've discovered Geocaching…our kids are on fire for this…they love the adventure of searching for treasures! It has made our familiar hiking trips take on new meaning.
These things are the things that make for fun times…wonderful memories and relaxing.
We tell the kids we work hard and we play hard. Working cane be fun and playing can be exhausting but it is all good!
We have since hit the books full time. We can't wait to see what other adventures we have to find.

We had quite the surprise last Sunday….we were invited out to a local lake. The family attends our church and they just lavished love on us and our kids.
They grilled a fabulous lunch from their boat house. He kids swam in the lake and loved heading out to the floating dock.
Darrell kayaked close to shore with a few of the little kids.
The most amazing thing was they took all of the kids rafting….serious work on their part. They spent two hours loading and unloading kiddos on he raft, taking them on the lake and switching them out.
I've never ever seen Sara so excited. She jumped up and down with excitement. It was such a sweet time.
We are very grateful for the opportunity to spend time out on their beautiful spot!
We had an amazing day on the river. We headed out with the Outdoor club at church for a day on the river paddling.
We paddled upstream and ate lunch on a beautiful little spot. The fellowship was good and the kids had a grand time on the rope swing. Everyone of them gave it a try. They had quite the adventuresome spirit.
Brandon sailed off from the tree and had amazing air!
We had such a fun time and before we knew it was time to head back down the river.
We all enjoyed it and said we can't wait until we do it again!
