Texas Convention

This past week we went to Houston, Texas for a State home school convention. Since we were in town, we visited two of Priscilla’s Sisters who live there.


David enjoyed visiting with his brother-in-law discussing concepts of leadership and management.

Paul has had a growing interest and enjoyment of playground equipment and has gotten to be quite a climber.

Homeschool Convention With the Duggars

Many have asked, “What does David do for work?” Well, here you have a small part of it. Both of us grew up in homeschool families and David has been blessed to work with homeschoolers in many different capacities. This past week, we went to a convention and assisted the Duggar family as they shared with thousands of people some of the things that have helped them along their journey in life.

Book signing can be quite an undertaking. This one lasted over two hours with hundreds of people moving through wanting to shake hands and get a picture with the Duggar family. davidlovespriscilla0725141257c

David coordinated some of the logistics and filled in as a photographer for all of the people coming through the lines.

It is one things to get to hear a little about the Duggar family, but when we made some books available that the Duggars enjoy, it gives people some lasting information that can impact their lives.davidlovespriscilla0725141852b

Paul had so much fun playing with other children, even if they were quite a bit older than him.davidlovespriscilla0726141035c

No, Paul is not for sale, even though one of the boys playfully put a price tag on him. Paul is simply a priceless treasure we would not trade for anything!


On the final evening of the convention, the Duggars did a music presentation as well as share their personal life stories as testimonies to the power of God to change lives.

  1. Suze looks very pretty. How is Susannah and her baby doing?

  2. Your family is beautiful. Praise God that you love them and accept them despite their differences. You are a blessed family.

  3. I so look forward to reading updates and seeing pictures of your family! You and your family are inspiring – particularly Priscilla. She is a wondeful, living example of a woman striving to be a Godly wife and mother. Now we’re just waiting on the big reveal… boy or girl?? So excited! Thank you for sharing!

  4. Have you found out what your second child is? I love reading your blog!

    • We can’t wait to find out what our baby is tomorrow.

      • Dear Waller Family,
        We are praying for you all!

        Noah says, “please tell us right away what the gender is.” 🙂 I am so excited for you!

        God bless you all,
        The Maple Family 🙂
        Prov. 3:5-7

  5. Dear Waller Family, 🙂

    We are so thankful for you. You are a blessing and a treasure! It is amazing to see you two serve the LORD at Conference (Sac.) and to see the love you both have for Paul. You are sweet parents. :O) We are praying for you all and are super excited to see the gender of the new baby. Thank you for being an encouragement to all of us. Noah is sending his love to Paul and a big hug too! 🙂 Please give him hugs from us all! 🙂

    May the LORD bless you as you serve Him.

    Much love, appreciation, and many prayers,
    The Maple Family 🙂

  6. I was so happy to meet you guys at the THSC Convention! I remembered Priscilla telling me you guys would find out if you were having a boy or a girl. I can’t see to find the answer. Maybe I’m not looking hard enough. I hope you guys are doing well and many, many blessings to you and your family <3
