Sorry for the lack of posts....

Well, as many of you have pointed out to me, we have not updated this blog in quite some time. Trust me, the lack of posting was not a sign of inactivity, but too much activity in the Williams Home!

In August we started up our new school year. A first for me, Cordell talked me into teaching a Latin course. Wait, a first for teaching Latin, not for Cordell talking me into things... We are enjoying learning the Latin, especially making the connections to English words. Any Latin scholars out there? We would appreciate pronunciation help.

Band has also started. Cordell is playing both the alto and tenor saxaphone, and Ryan continues with the trumpet. Jenny is taking a break this year.

Both boys are also on the Rolla Regional Robotics team, which competes in the First Lego League division. They especially like building the robots and the attachments. It requires lots of strategy in knowing which missions to try for, as well as good programming skills. The theme this year is Food Factor - food safety. Cordell's team is researching cheese, and Ryan's is working on eggs. Their competition is in December - coming right up!

Well, we have lots more to fill you in on - be watching for new posts!
