The Train

This week my family and I were decorating the house getting it ready for Christmas, and my job was to put the star on top of the tree and to put together the mechanical "Train" that goes under the tree.  So first I tried it out, and it turned out great, but then slowly it went down hill. A piece came off the I could not put it back so I asked my dad if he could fix it but he

My Sick Weekend

‍This week was Thanksgiving, and my school district gave us the week off. As you know I would; I spent the whole weekend playing Madden, NBA 2k17, and Call of Duty Black Ops 2. When the weekend arrived, I had a cold. Because of my cold, my parents made me stay on the couch all day. It was fun because I was watching football with my dad and my favorite team is the New England Patriots. This Sunday they are playing the NY Jets,

Ice and Sun

[caption id="attachment_143" align="alignright" width="233"] Presley, Brandon, EV and Danny[/caption] Almost two complete years of being in Colorado and I still don't get the weather.

I was also reading my Bible and I learned that no matter where you are or what is happening someone will always be with you.  And I learned that you only need to be still because the Lord will fight for you.

What a Difference a Year Makes.

Wow what a difference a year makes.  I look back over the last year since last Thanksgiving and I can only thank God for all he has done for me and my family.  It was around this time last year that I had no idea how I was going to pay my bills.  Things were not going well, things with our move had taken a turn for the worst.  With my back against the wall I said a simple prayer,

Tennis Anyone?

The Brewington clan has decided to take up tennis in hopes of living a healthier lifestyle.  Considering Longmont has 15 places you can play tennis for free with two of them are within a mile of our house it makes sense.  Tennis is a great sport for families of all ages, it's fun, and you get a great workout whether you are hitting the ball or chasing after those pesky stray shots.

Ears, Nose and Throat. Our trip to the Children’s Hospital

Happy with the news of the change in surgery.

Our trip to the Children's Hospital of Colorado I should give a little background.  Our youngest son Danny has had problems breathing and bloody noses for several years.  He also has had migraines and would vomit a lot.  In Chile, the doctors told us that he had allergies. Since moving to the States, we took the kids for a routine doctors visit. It was during this visit that the doctors discovered that he had a severely deviated septum and adenoids
