Our Kids

Better Late Than Never!

Here at the Knightly manor, the children’s birthdays all sort of come one after another and have a tendency to fly right by!  This is especially true now that we are wrapping up our summer in Zambia when it is The Lad’s birthday AND first few weeks of teaching when it is Little Miss’ bday. […]

Yes, we are happy….

…to have our Daddy home!!!


    The Lord has given me thirteen years with this precious boy!  It seems like he was born a few month ago but it also feels like he has forever been a part of my life.  I love you sweet boy (can I still call you sweet at 13??).  I love being your mom.  […]

A little something very important I left out…

I totally forgot I had these pics from 2007.  Too bad I did not find these when I wrote about my children’s salvation.  My heart was singing a happy song when I realized what a gem these photos are.  This is a brief photo documentation of our son’s decision to follow Christ for all the […]

No Words

There are no words to adequately explain to my son why our friends’ nine-day-old baby died today.  There are no words that can be written on a blog or facebook wall to even attempt to console a grieving family.  There are no words to share with you to express my very miniscule pain compared to […]


A note from the husband: I am in Zambia!  I made it in just fine at 6:00am this morning.  After getting through customs and briefly waiting for my luggage, I met Greer who was waiting for me and we drove to the Mullungushi Housing Village.  Mullungushi was built in the 1950s for the Queen of […]

Second Best

 A few weeks before Christmas our ten year old son insisted on writing and entering the upcoming Martin Luther King, Jr. Essay Contest hosted by a community organization in a nearby town.  His assignment was to write about someone who lives or works in that town and how they are like Martin Luther King, Jr.  Knowing […]
