He didn't win the costume contest in his age group but I have to admit that the competition was pretty rough! The following day he won the contest at my grandparent's assissted living center. They had a TON of kids in costumes and I thought for sure there was not way he would beat out some of the other kids but he went up to the judge and "shot" her with his "guns" so I think he won by intimidation. :O)

Keep your faith in this world,
And let the light of the Lord shine through
That's what makes you beautiful
Even roses fade away in the snow
But the beauty in your heart can always grow

I wasn't going to do it. I wanted him home with me. Afterall, he IS my baby! My last! But the transition of going from 6 playmates every day (5 siblings and dad) to 1 (me) seemed to be too much for him and he was having a really hard time! Apparantly, I am not fun. Janette decided to do this little pre-school for a few hours each day and several of his buddies from church were attending so it seemed like the right thing to do. I feel good about it. Sort of. Afterall, he IS my baby. My last.

This has not been a summer of extravagant vacations. Its been a summer of simple pleasures, probably my favorite thus far. Which is kind of , well, ironic. How many dads get a chance to spend an entire summer home with all the kids??? We have made some great lemonade out of the lemons life handed us over the last five months. I had everyone brainstorm their favorite memories and compiled a list because I wanted to be able to remember it.

1. Save! Save! Save! We are sooo glad we are savers! We would have never been able to afford to fight this battle (or keep a roof over our heads) if we hadn't been savers.
2. It's never a bad idea to have the business card of a good labor attorney in your rolodex. I'm just sayin'...
3. There is a silver lining to EVERYTHING, you just have to look for it. For instance, Brent was the only dad able to attend ALL the swim meets for the season.
4. Family trials make stronger families.
5. It feels GOOD to "let go and let God".
6. Prayer is even more powerful than I thought.
7. Oh yeah, that whole "turning the other cheek" thing....
8. With every "trial" (ironic, don't you think?) we get to choose. Is this going to make me BITTER or BETTER?
I'll keep you "posted".... (get it?)

Tanner and his all-star-placing freestyle and medley relay team.
Reagan in "the zone" before a race.
swim team buddies
I need to give a little shout out to our swimming friends, the Fergusons. Swim team would not have been the same without them but unfortunately, I must not have had my camera out at the meets they came too. They had to miss a few at the beginning of the season so I don't have any pics with them but we love you Katie and Jenna!
