Easter 2013

Easter was wonderful! What more can I say?!? First we went to church (all of us except Kendyl and Keith because she was sick) and then we all gathered at our house where Danielle's parents and sister joined us. Lunch was on our back porch where the weather was perfect. The afternoon was spent watching basketball which didn't fair so well for us as Gator and Duke fans but Keith was happy as Michigan did great! Enjoy the pictures!

I know there are some of you who don't do Facebook but have followed the blog. I apologize for being so slow to update the blog. We are doing great and just enjoyed a family Thanksgiving at our house. One of the perks for being in education is the week off we get for Thanksgiving break. It was wonderful and needed. Christmas is almost in place at the Cribb home because we had time to do it! I'm posting some updated pictures and you can see the kids are growing like crazy! Kendyl will be one next month! Enjoy and email or call any time!

Long time

It's been a long time since I've posted anything and, honestly, I'm not sure anyone reads this anymore but tonight I need to post for me. Today was "Preview Sunday" for the new church campus we are helping to launch. Henry was at the Connect Table and I was at the computer doing the projection of words, slides, etc. It was almost overwhelming. It's been a long, long time since I felt such a peace and belonging in church. I couldn't help but fight back the tears as the words to the music came up and God ministered to my spirit in a very special way. I thank Him for that gift. Life is full with family and work. Helping to launch this new church campus is even more fulfilling. The mission of the church is to help people take their next step toward Christ. Being a part of this church family is our next step toward Christ. Thank you, Grace Orlando and Mike and Kelly, for your vision of one church and many campuses. Thank you Bobby and Maggie and Kyle and Angela for following God's call to start this specific campus and for welcoming us into your family. God is good, all the time; all the time, God is good.

So much going on...

Life in the Cribb household has been very busy. Let's see.... since I last posted, kids have been sick and recovered, grown ups have been sick and recovered, one little boy played his first soccer game and brought back memories to his grandparents of when his uncle played many years ago, two visits from Nana have happened, got a quick visit from Melissa who has been living in California, attended the Apopka High School musical for the first time in years, got a longer visit from Pam's high school friend who lives in Minnesota, Pam had a 35-year high school class reunion, and the list goes on and on. What a very full life we have. At this point, we are blessed beyond measure and continue to take it one day at a time. God is so good and while there are challenges, we remain humbled by God's provisions. We would love to hear from you any time! Call (321-972-3604) or email (!

Kaleb is 3!

Kaleb Michael Bielski turned three years old on Thursday. Saturday we had family over to watch him play in his first soccer game and then came to our house to celebrate the big day. We didn't think about the fact that with all of his family showing up at his first soccer game, he would be WAY more interested in visiting with us than with playing soccer on the field. Oh well, he had a good time anyway....and so did we.

Miss Kendyl is growing so quickly and there is nothing like her sweet smile as she works so hard to "talk." She rolled over for the first time yesterday so Heather and Keith only have so long before she will be everywhere.

We attended the play at Apopka High School this past weekend too. What a joy to watch this long time tradition be rekindled. The bonus of seeing Ragan on stage was pretty awesome as well. Hard to believe she is a senior! Hello!!! Where did the time go?

Speaking of time, my 35th high school class reunion is this coming weekend. I feel like I'm only 35 so how can it be my 35th class reunion? The mystery of aging, I guess.

We continue to pray for many of our friends including Heywood as he continues the healing process from the bone marrow transplant and Angela as she heals from the double mastectomy and little newborn Kennedy as she just gets stronger and stronger. We are grateful for relationships that are a part of our extended family of God. Let's make it a great week.

Prayers for others

Please pray for Betsy Downs and her family from our Tarpon Springs church family. Her sweet husband, Ron, went to be with the Lord today. They were a precious couple and he meant so much to so many. He will be missed so much.

Cribb update

Much has happened since the last post and, thankfully, it's almost 100% wonderful! After nine days in the hospital, Kendyl came home on no oxygen and is doing great! Her cough is still there a little but we'll take it after all she went through. During her stay, she changed so much and is now very much aware of her surroundings and will smile at you, etc. She is a cutie!
Kaleb has grown too and is as smart as a whip. He can tell you his birthday is April 12th and that he wants Lion King cupcakes made by Aunt Danielle (Chad's girlfriend) at his party. We will repeat anything he says so Heather and Keith and all those around are very aware that anything they say and do can be soaked up by a little boy. This explains the picture of Heather and Kaleb from Ash Wednesday. At the church service, Kaleb got a sticker on his hand reminding him of how much Jesus loves him. When they got home and began taking him out of the car seat, they noticed he had placed his sticker on his forehead so that he looked like his mommy and daddy! Parents, beware! :)
We are going to buy my dad's 1968 Ford Bronco from my mom and were in Trenton this weekend to see if Henry's brother-in-law could help us get it started. This Bronco is the one I drove to high school and it is pictured several times in our yearbook for different reasons. All those memories came roaring back and I couldn't help but think that my dad would love to see me in it again. Then this morning, I got a text that one of my good friends in high school passed away yesterday. Since only 44 of us graduated from Trenton in 1977, there have been a flurry of texts, emails, and Facebook messages as we are in disbelief that one of us has died. What a weekend.
As I write this, God has reminded me this weekend of how very thankful I am to be in this place right now. Our kids are around us, we both have jobs we love, and God has provided mightily. We continue to look forward to what He has in store.
