We originally started this blog (years ago) to keep track of the every day things in our lives that we didn't want to forget but knew that we would in time. As life got in the way, we posted less and less until March 2010 when Matthew's arrival rocked our world. Now we use this blog to let everyone know how Matthew is progressing and the big events going on at the Hoy House. We are so appreciative of everyone who has read our story and has thought and prayed for Matthew and for us.
Alyssa bridged from Daisies to Brownies in Girl Scouts this past week. Very exciting. I remember being a Brownie. We even had a tree in our backyard when I was growing up, affectionately known as the Brownie tree-- since it was grown from seeds we picked up around the neighborhood during a Brownie meeting. Alyssa has enjoyed her time in Girl Scouts so far, and I hope that remains the case in Austin as well.
