Our Family

Greetings from the Mack family. We are a family of 12 living in the country. We are of the reformed faith, attending Westminster Presbyterian Church. My husband and I are seeking to glorify God with every effort as we raise our children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. Some things we enjoy doing are fellowshiping with friends, singing songs of praise, taking trips to the river in the summer time, playing in the snow in the winter, camping as a family, and sharing great adventures together while serving Christ and His kingdom forever.

All Boys Camping Trip

Because three of my brothers were born within the first 8 days of September, (Jesse Sept. 1, Joel Sept. 6, and Jonah Sept. 8) they typically celebrate together. This year Dad, Judah and the three Birthday boys went for an all boys camping trip in Estacada, OR. Dad got some great pictures that tell the story of their adventures had there. Ejoy!

We celebrated EmberLynn on her 7th Birthday, July 31st, 2010. Some years it's hard to get in the habit of saying he or see is such and such an age, you want them to stay the same age forever. But this year it just seems right that EmberLynn is seven because she has matured much over this past year. As she's getting older, she has still retained her sweet, kind and cheerful heart, and we hope this would stay with her all the years of her life. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, EMBERLYNN!

Going through some old photos on the mac, we found that we have progressive family pics. Reminiscing is so sweet. :)

Adventures Without Limit

Jesse recently made a new website and I thought you guys might want to check it out. (Click on the following) http://www.adventureswithoutlimit.com/ The more websites that it's link appears on, the more likely it is to show up on google (and other search engines), so spread the word :) It's a really cool business he's starting and I'm sure anyone who go's on it will have a blast :) Hopefully people will be well aware by the summer and he can get right on going with his business. So once again spread the word and take a look at his website! :)

The Perfect Pineapple

Michaela is a big fan of pineapple. :) The Hugheys gave her a pineapple corer, slicer thing. It's fancy because you can cut the slices into squares and put them back into the pineapple skin and cover it with the top. She cut this one at night and then refrigerated it. We had it the next morning for breakfast and Dad thought it was a whole pineapple. "How are we going to eat this?" He wondered. Then she revealed the secret.

Thanks for the gift Carol!

Of disk golf and home businesses

We played frisbee golf in the rain today. It was epic. It was also wet, in case you couldn't guess this much. Not only was it rainy, but also windy. Due to the wind, AndraLea gave her long distance frisbee to the roof, probably never to see it again, but hopefully it will be returned to her if the folks at glenwood find it up there and see the number written on the back.

More exciting news, this time of a positive nature. Jesse, our second oldest child, is starting a summertime business. The idea is to host groups up to eight people for two weeks of the summer at a time, and be their tour guide for various adventures in the North West. Check out his websight and spread the news!! http://adventureswithoutlimit.com/ See also, ttp://mackplumbing.homestead.com/. By going here you will see the mack plumbing websight for our Head of Household's business. And don't be shy... spread the news! Tell your friends! We're open for business. ;-)

About a week ago, a few families in our church co-op took a field trip to the Oregon Trail exhibit at the Portland Museum. It was a great experience. The kids got to spend time with each other, and learn great facts about the history of the Great North West. They didn't allow photos inside the museum, but I hope you enjoy these few pictures from our lunch break outside the museum.

Silly faces!

The group.

Standing by Teddy.

What an interesting atmosphere. Notice the tall portland building directly behind the Statue of Theodore Roosevelt.

People probably thought it kind of odd to see a group this large, all the girls in skirts, walking down the sidewalks of Portland in the middle of the week. They probably guessed we were homeschoolers. ;)

Playing tag outside the museum.

This building was amazing... It was painted brick, but from the street it appeared to be constructed like this.

Our family should get one of these drinking fountains, all the kids could get their drink at the same time without waiting in line. :) The water in Portland doesn't taste very good.

That's all for now folks!
