Sally, Greg and Hannah said...

Hello There! My name is Sally and I from upstate NY. I found your blog through Bethany's blog...I love reading about you guys and your upcoming baby! By the way, were you in Washington, D.C. around October 22nd??? I think I saw you both in one of the Smithsonian museums. My hubby and I were celebrating our 3 year anniversary and I could have sworn I saw you.
My favorite food has to be home made beef stew with dumplings! So good!

Jonathan said...

This is Jonathan B. from northern North Dakota, and I found your blog about a year ago through the links from the Wissmann's blogs. Actually, it was longer than that because it was before Abi started writing on it! I've been blessed by the Wissmann's music ministry and have enjoyed following the lives of all the family members as you continue to be great examples of the believers. It's encouraging to see other people out there that believe like us, and it's especially neat to watch the rise of the next generation of home educators! Congrats on the coming baby!

Ummmm, favorite food? That would have to be chicken noodle casserole with fresh garden peas, or venison steaks.

We praise God for you and are so excited for His precious gift of new life within you. Thanks for your sweet updates - They're fun, encouraging, and always a blessing!

My favorite food...has to be chocolate! I like to think of it as a separate food group! ;-) God bless you guys!
