The Good, the Bad and the Ugly!

The good...We survived a week of VBS and had SO much fun! Alex and I were both sad to see it come to an end yesterday. I was so proud of Alex at last nights performance as he sang and danced and enjoyed every minute.

The bad... The week has taken its toll. Alex woke up this morning with a low grade fever and sore throat. After talking to Dr. Koenig it wa decided we had to see our pediatrician today. We are hoping he can reassure us that this is just a little cold or throat infection and we do not have to head to Houston.

The ugly... 18 months with Bruce out of work has really started to take an emotional toll on both Bruce and I. Unless you have been there, i cannot begin to explain the all consuming anxiety and fear. It permeates every thought and every decision. It is so scary to not know how you will pay your bills or pay for groceries and of course somehow manage to keep Alex's precious health insurance going. We have been so blessed with the generosity of family and friends. We are so anxious for Bruce to find the "perfect" job so we can feel a relief from this fear and stress that invade our lives. Please continue to pray with us as we believe God hears our prayers and has something planned for Bruce.

We fell so lucky to have such awesome family and friends that share our hopes,our fears, our tears, and our laughter with us. Thank you for being such an important part of our lives!

And of course I have pictures!
