Jonathan is now a FISH!

Today was a big accomplishment for Jonathan! He can now swim all on his own!! NO noodle, floaties, nothin! He has been going over to his school aides house this summer 2x's a week and she has told Jonathan over and over that he can do ANYTHING! Well, she was right. I honestly didn't think Jonathan could ever swim on his own without help. I am happy to say I was wrong!! Here are videos and pictures to prove it :) GO JONATHAN!!

WHew!!! The sound of relief! Jordan's eagle project is done!!

Kind of-at least the biggest part of it! What an emotional roller coaster that was!! Between getting donations gathered, fliers passed out, building secured, pattern created and tweaked, organizing many great and willing volunteers, keeping calm...these are just a few of the tasks Jordan had to conquer.

I did manage to bug, annoy and nag him along the way :) I actually learned more than I ever thought I would.

I am impressed with how well Jordan managed this project. It was big and crazy! I am equally impressed with the amount of love and generosity shown by family and friends. So many came and helped in ways I didn't think possible. From the darling fabric that was donated, phone calls to see what was needed and those that just jumped in and went to work. Kudos to all of you!!! I love you all!!! Thanks!


a pile of completed pants-we actually ended up with 96! 38 with velcro and the rest without. We can't wait to present them to St. Joe's hospital!

a little advertising for my son's eagle scout project :)

This sat, my oldest Jordan is going to have his Eagle project. I am filled with anxiety, pride, gratitude and sadness that I am old enough to have a son working on his eagle! Here is the flyer he delegated to me to create :)



Hopefully we will make it to Sat :)
