This weekend was a big one for us, full of wonderful family events ALL weekend. The fun didn't stop until yesterday afternoon. I can't tell you all enough how much it meant to us that you were there for Spunky's special day. Her decision to follow her Savior, Jesus Christ, and be baptized was a big decision and one she was really excited about. We were so happy to have our family and friends there to support her. We love you all so very very much.

I can't believe that it has been since months since the Rock was diagnosed with Autism. The intial overload hasn't totally worn off but has become smaller. When I first took the Rock to see the doctor I felt like I was loosing my son, today I feel like I am a part of his world. EVERYDAY miracles happen at our house, I think they probably happen at yours too, it's all in how and what you see as a miracle. To us miracles include: *the girls wanting to read the scriptures or read at all *Taz not going to timeout *the Rock eating!!! (just eating anything is good) *Punky enjoying school *Spunky saying she's smart *the boys playing together *the Rock following/understanding any direction *the Rock crying when we leave him *Taz playing and learning *the Rock pointing for something he wants There are so many others, but the simple things ARE the tender mercies and miracles sent from heaven above. ***disclaimer I write this to remind me of my blessings, it's way to easy to get caught up in all that is needed, I prefer to see the miracles (right now anyway).


Punky is growing so fast I can't believe it! My baby is 10! She is a fabulous story writer, lovely singer, and amazing artist. These are all things she loves to do and it shows in the work she produces. She is a very logical thinker and can come to very wise conclusions on her own. This is exiciting and difficult at times. We love her so very much and has changed our lives for the better everyday for the last 10yrs.
