I am blessed

I am blessed because . . .

~when I got up today Tony had already called on three rentals.

~Austin and Drew are good restaurant kids.

~I got to have a whole afternoon hanging with my little sister (while Tony watched all three boys!)

~I am able to homeschool Austin and learn new stuff as I teach him.

~my parents have let us live with them since August and aren't kicking us out yet.

~mostly because I am loved by God no matter what!!!

Our winner

Austin had his first Cub Scouts Pinewood Derby this past Sunday.  His dad and Uncle Steve helped him make a car and had a lot of fun doing it!  Austin wanted to make it look like Scott Dixon's car but ended up just painting it black, because that would be "cool".  His car ended up looking very cool and got third place in the Wolf division of his pack.  Pretty good for their first try!

There was also a cake auction to raise money for the pack and the animal shelter, and we let Austin bid on a few cakes.  He was so excited about it!  He got close a few times but it wasn't until towards the end that he won the bidding for a cake.  

I'll post pictures after Tony shows me how to hook my new camera disk or whatever up to our computer!
