Psalm 32: 1-6 from the message
Count yourself lucky, how happy you must be - you get a fresh start, your slate's wiped clean.
Count yourself lucky - God holds nothing against you and you're holding nothing back from him.
When I kept it all inside, my bones turned to powder, my words became daylong groans.
The pressure never let up; all the juices of my life dried up.
Then I let it all out; I said, "I'll make a clean breast of my failures to God." Suddenly the pressure was gone - my guilt dissolved, my sin disappeared.
These things add up. Every one of us needs to pray; when all hell breaks loose and the dam bursts we'll be on high ground, untouched.
Lord, please forgive where I have stolen time from you. The time that you wanted to spend with me I gave to another. Please clean my plate. Let me start anew. I have looked down upon others for stealing your money and I have been no better by stealing your time. Please help me to have a desire to be with you. Help me to have a thirst for your word.

Here are the stats:
Weight - 14.3 lbs
Height - 25.4 inches
He was in the 50 percentile in height and weight. He was a little lower percentile for his head circumference. This kinda makes me laugh because we always say our kids have big heads. He is sleeping all the way through the night except for the times he really thinks he needs his pacifier to go back to sleep. We have tried to let him cry it out with out any success. He is very persistent for long periods of time. He is a very happy baby unless he doesn't get what he wants. He is not rolling over yet but he does lift his bottom up off the bed with his feet. He loves, loves, loves his brothers and wants to watch what they are doing all the time. They are obviously great entertainment. He is still going to work with me, but pretty soon he will probably be mobile enough to not want to be in his bouncer. I am so enjoying his smiles and coos. He is such a blessing to us.

Andrew was a trooper through the whole season. We brought a bag of men and various other toys and snacks to each game. He usually played pretty close to me in the dirt somewhere. Needless to say we had to take a bath each evening after ball.
Noah doesn't look to happy in this pictures because he wanted to win. Losing is hard on him. Hopefully he will eventually learn how to lose with grace.
I had some pictures of Nannie, Pops, Memaw and Papaw at one of the games but I can't seem to find them. aaargh. All the ones of Ti I couldn't find either. Ti did good at the games he only got upset when his momma would yell. OOOPS I would have been a good cheerleader.

Really I am just kidding we don't have that many yet. Only time will tell if we did it right.
Ingredients for a worm bed. (just in case you want to make one yourself)
1. Willing boys and men and maybe a few dogs.
2. Rubber bend
3. Mesh Wiring
5. Shovel, drill, and staple gun
6. Peat moss
7. Shredded news paper
9. Last but not least worms
I looked up on the internet a few different ways to make a worm bed and basically used some information from quite a few different sites to make ours.
First Timmy dug a hole to put the tub in. He dug one in the very back of the yard in case it smelled and underneath a shade tree. I am hoping this will keep them cool this summer. We used an old tub I was not using because the lid was broken.
Everyone is helping including the dogs.
After the hole was dug we went to work on making the bed. We drilled holes in the bottom of the tub so that it could drain well. Andrew needed a little help but Noah was able to drill them by himself. You know he is about to be eight and all.

Ti got to ride with Dad on the hike down to the falls.
