A dear friend of mine's family is going through a rough time with cancer right now. I grew up with her family, she was my Young Women's President and I've watch from afar as she has raised her own family (three out of her four boys are diabetic) with her wonderful husband, Ryan. They have asked for as many as possible to participate in a day of prayer and fasting for Ryan Schumacher this Sunday, September 2nd. I would like to extend the invitation to anyone who might read my blog to also participate. You can read up on their story on facebook at: Schuhmacher Family Miracle.

Austin turned 10 on the 23rd of this month. He has been planning this four layer minecraft themed cake. I don't know how it happened, but apparently I was delegated to make this happen. We tried to convince him this was crazy but his mind was made up! I figured it wouldn't be too hard for me if I delegated. I'd make the four cakes (he decided he wanted four different cakes rather than layers) and I'd give him the fondant and have him make all the figures. HA. On his first figure he was complaining about how hard it was and that he was stressed out. When he saw that mine were half way ok he turned into a little director and enjoyed bossing me around! The whole thing took about three days. I was so tired and just slopped it all together and then let Austin place the figures on it. It helped that all the characters in minecraft are just blocks!

On Saturday Lisa took the kids to a birthday party at the roller skating rink. Apparently she was doing really well showing off her roller skating skills and then switched to roller blades. She made it one way around and was told to go faster...yeah, well, she fell and landed on her wrist, which is now broken...her first broken bone! She ended up in the ER. Bob dropped me off to pick up her car and he brought her home after they set the bone. We went to the doctor today and she is scheduled to have surgery on the 23rd. Poor thing is in so much pain! That doesn't keep the rest of us from making fun of her though! Hopefully it is a quick recovery!
