This year has flown by!!!

Wow, we are about to close out the second month of 2010 and I have not posted one picture. I can't seem to find the fun pics I have taken so I will just update with words :)

--Cohl is officially a Tiger Cub Scout. Cutest thing! He got first place in the Pine Wood Derby out of all of the Tiger Cubs (1st grade) and 3rd over all (1-5 grades). We were all surprised as it is our first time doing anything like that. Since starting Cub Scouts he has visited the Channel 30 TV station, the fire station and designed and built the derby car from scratch. Go Cohl.

--Cohl also swallowed a metal marble. Not sure if it has come out yet, two weeks since it took the plunge into his bowels, I stopped looking for it. Yuck!

--We have had way too many people we know experience great tragedy in the past few weeks, so we mourn with them and those close to them. I am reminded when I am going to sleep and thinking of these families that God says, "Be still and know that I am GOD." I have really realized my own frailty as a human through these weeks and our dependence on God for every breath. He knows the number of our days, yet we think we are so strong and can determine our future. Not so.

--I am so thankful for my friends and family and the support they bring to us physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
