A long overdue update

Well, it turns out I am a terrible blogger. I always wondered why people would comment on their blogs about how hard it is to keep it up. I mean, how much time could it possibly take? Well it does take time it turns out, haha! I totally get it now.

Ryder's fundraising update: As of today we have raised...drum roll please...$1,230!!! Plus, I just sent in another check today for $10. I have to say I am pretty darn proud of our family. I wasn't even going to sign up because I thought there was no way we would ever make it to $1,000. I guess I underestimated how many wonderful friends and family we have!

Our next goal: Find Ryder a family! We said our prayers tonight and my 4 year old, Teagan, prayed that Ryder would find a family so he could swing, eat at restaurants, and watch t.v. Can you tell what her favorite things to do are? :) All I know is this little guy is healthy and has soooo much potential! We know there is a family out there for him somewhere. I really don't want to have to be his warrior again next year. I would rather him be at home with his family.

So true

'I shall pass this way but once.. Therefore, any good that I can do or any kindness that I can show, let me do it now, for I shall not pass this way again.'
