This family picture was taken on Thanksgiving Day 2013 outside of Faith Lutheran Church in Bellaire, TX. Our days and evenings are usually filled and move quickly, but we are cherishing the small things of life together as a family. Here is an update on what the Faulkner family has been up to in the last year:
Margo is in her sixth year as an educator in Katy ISD. Her big news this year is she started working toward a Masters in Educational Leadership at the University of St. Thomas, Houston. She has done exceptionally well in her classes so far, and her professors frequently compliment her work.
Clayton continues to serve as Director of Worship, Music, and Technology at Faith Lutheran Church in Bellaire. He did a couple of exciting ministry things this year. In June he gave a presentation on the environment in worship at the Ancient-Future Faith Network’s annual meeting in Pennsylvania. In August he led the TUNE UP worship band gathering at his church in Bellaire with 125 church musicians attending.
Deacon moved up to first grade in 2013. He and his brother attend the same school together where Margo teaches. Deacon got to attend his first year of Faith Camp this summer at church. He also played flag football this Fall and put up some impressive stats.
Masamo is now a Kindergartener. He is very outgoing and has made lots of new friends. He played soccer for the first time this Fall and enjoyed playing on his team. Masamo is learning a lot and keeps everyone entertained with his antics.
Merry Christmas from the Faulkners!
