Jumping back on the wagon

What we are reading used to be a starting point for blog entries, yet those haven't happened in YEARS!  I mean the blog entries.  We still read, but in the past few years well, we suddenly got even more busy around here with two more babies, starting a school (Yay, RiverTree!!), moving that school, remodeling, running it, hiring, etc.  There are many reasons the RiverTree Blog just hasn't been a priority here, but I'm attempting to jump back on that wagon and blog.  So, if you ever check this, I imagine our old followers have forgotten our existence, welcome back.  Join our wagon train as w

What we're reading Summer 2010

Hello long lost readers...if there are any of you anymore! It is already August, and I thought it was time to share some books the Nelsons have enjoyed this summer. Some were read collectively, some individually, and some we're slowly looking through. This list isn't comprehensive. There are a few I'm leaving out so maybe I'll have more material for another post sooner that a half year from now!

Hello, I'm your personal shopper

Today it is in the high 70's here in Minnesota, and yet I've spent the bulk of my day at my computer shopping. That's dedication, I tell you. I've got a garden to plant and a yard to clean up, but I'm happy to announce that the RiverTree school uniform is almost completely picked out and will soon be available to order. We are still working on getting the logo ready for various items, but soon, you'll see it!

Come pray with me!

Our first prayer meeting for RiverTree is on Monday April 13th at 4p.m. at the Dunn Bros. Coffee Shop on Bass Lake Road in Maple Grove. Please join me and other parents as we pray God's blessing on the future of this school, the two teachers we've hired, the teachers we have yet to hire, our board, our head of school, Brooklyn Park E Free, our students, Ambleside Schools International, and many more things. Let's lift this venture up to Jesus!

What? You're still reading this?!!

Actually, that's great! BUT if you are relying on this blog for all of the current RiverTree gossip, activities, etc, you're looking in the wrong spot. We will continue to post here, but the most current info can come directly to your email box if you only sign up for our newsletter (click on newsletter). You don't have to be someone planning on sending your children to RT (of course we hope that you do), you can just be someone who think this is all rather interesting and is curious.

It your chance to express your opinion!

Hello dear readers. Lest you think we aren't doing anything to further the plan for RiverTree opening Fall 2009, I thought I better write a post. One reason you haven't heard a lot from us is that we are still spending every moment we can pursuing a location for RTS. More on that later from Rodney. Much of our search is calling, waiting, wondering, learning patience and trust. All are valuable things, just not good blog posts.

How I found a soul mate

No, not that soul mate. I won't turn this blog all personal and tell you about the great romance of mine with Mr. Nelson. No, I'm talking about Charlotte. It's funny, at our house we talk about Miss Mason like she's a beloved aunt. The other day as I was puzzling through how to handle a schooling issue Rodney suggested we think WWCD (what would Charlotte do?). Hope that isn't sacreligious to you. Yes, yes our concerns about discerning what Jesus would do takes significant pre-eminence, but you get the jist of how we think about her.
