This is Jamie Barton she is a missionary from Jamaica. We all loved having her stay with us! We didn't want her to leave. She was a blessing to our family. She really helped Tegan keep his mind off his head/stitches that were really bothering him.
My little man just turned 2!!! We are so blessed to have this little guy in our lives. To think of all that he has been through. He is feeling really good, now that the stitches have fallen out. I was truly amazed at how good he acted during his Birthday. The surgery has helped him so much.

Aunt Janet visiting. Thanks for coming over and cheering us up!
The Barr family visited Tegan too. Thanks everyone for showing Tegan how much you care for him!
Grandma spent the week with us while Ronn was gone. She helped entertain the kids. Stephen our neighbor boy was over a lot visiting too. Grandma is blowing bubbles for the kids.
Here Tegan is this morning. He is feeling really good. He has not needed to take Tylenol yet today. Yeah! We are Grandpa and Grandma's house while I get some computer work done. He loves spending time here!

It has been over a week now from Tegan's surgery. If he didn't have he scar on the back of his head you would never know he had any surgery. Praise God!! After his surgery I thought we where in for a long recovery. He is still very clingy, but is getting better.
Tiffany was invited to a birthday party this weekend by a boy in her class. I was the only parent to stay.:) She is a little clingy too. She had a really good time. I am so thankful they invited her. Tiffany is feeling better about school now. The dropping off and picking her up is still very scary for her.
Tristan woke up this morning crying, not wanting to go to school. We worked it out though. He is a spy today and is going to find the real problems at school. I know! Hey, I think it worked.:) I talked with his teacher on the phone today and she had no idea he was so unhappy. She is moving him to a different seat and trying to find him a buddy. The teacher was very nice about the whole thing. I hope my spy comes home wanting to stay in his class.
Ronn had an awesome week. I hope he is able to blog about it. He was with the missionaries from CSI this past week. They all met in Florida and had workshops and a lot of free time to get to know each other better.
For me I had an incredibly stressed out week. Even though Tegan is better, there are times he screams and cries a lot. I hated to see my kids go to a new school scared and having bad days. We got through it though. I would have lost the other half of my mind if my Mom and Dad weren't there to help out. Thanks Mom and Dad!!! I knew it was going to be stressful due to all the odd circumstances. So with that my time is up and I have to go back to work. Hoping that this week is a better one. :)

I am sorry not to update. We have no Internet at the house yet and I have not been able to get away to update anyone.
God is good! Thank you again for your prayers.
Tristan and Tiffany starting a new school has also been stressful on us this week. Tristan is having a hard time with the kids in his class. Tristan has a lot of naughty kids in his class.
Tiffany has anxiety at the beginning of class. The students are very nice in her class so this has helped a lot. I would really appreciate it if you would hold Tristan and Tiffany in your prayers.

Mom and Dad are here now to give give me a lunch break.
Tegan is in and out of sleep. He still calls out for me when he wakes up. Every time he awakes he looks afraid. I think he is also afraid to cry and cough due to his head hurting. He is also frightened anytime he is moved. Which means he does not move his head at all. They have up the pain med's to every two hours to get on top of the pain. The nurse was very good last night. His heart rate was up all night. They think due to the pain. So that is why they are giving the med's more often. So far this morning his heart rate looks better and he seems to be sleeping comfy. His room is kept very dark and quiet.
Daddy and Tiffany stopped by this morning. It was good to see them. When Tegan saw them I thought his heart rate would go up. It went down! Having them here really relaxed him. Tiffany did a great job being quiet. Keep up the prayers!!!! I'll up date you when I have more.

The house is taking shape and looking really good. I am actually thankful to have moved so fast. It has really kept my mind off the surgery. This week would have been really hard on me. This past couple of hours I have tried hard not to cry.
Tegan will be going into Riley first to have an MRI 7:30am then at 9:30am his Chiari Decompression will begin. This will take 3-5 hours. He will then stay in the hospital 3-4 days. Thank you to everyone for all your prayers!!!!! You know who you are and we really appreciate you!! Please continue to pray and pray for a quick recovery so we can get him home right away!! I will try to update this blog as much as I can. Want to learn more about Chiari click on Lacy's blog. Thanks!

A couple of weeks before closing it looked like we where needing to move back to Franklin area. So we had been praying that if we where to move back that the house would fall through. We knew then when the agent called that no doubt we are to move back. Ronn's job has changed a lot so he is able to work from home some of the time. He is traveling and speaking a lot on weekends. Which has been fun for all of us to go on as well. We will need more help from my parents though, with Ronn speaking more. So this actually works out great to be closer to my parents. Tegan has really missed his Pa.:) We will live only 10 min from my parents.
Franklin is also closer to the Indy airport which helps with Ronn's job too. The funny thing is we like to move. It has never bothered us that God calls us to different places for any reason. We love meeting new people. We also like that we can us our gifts God has given us
I have a picture of our house I will post later. I can't find right now. I have miss placed with all the moving boxes. So we have been very busy packing.
Well my child just got a permanent marker and marked himself and the wall. That's my signal I have to get off the computer.
Tegan's surgery is Friday. Please be praying for him. I hope to post something before then. If not I am sure you will understand. God Bless!

This weekend though it's Revival Time! Ronn and my brother Kris are leading revival at my dad's church, Providence Christian Church. Last year at this time at Providence Christian the boys lead the revival. It's neat to have all three of the guys lead the services.
So this weekend we are all at mom and dad's house. We have been laughing so hard that our stomach's hurt. I have even had tears. We mostly have great stories that mom has provided us with. Mom you really need to write a book or start blogging all these stories!! Think of how your grandchildren will benefit. They will not have to wonder why they are the way they are. :)

We then headed to Jacobs Family Orchard. The kids had a great time!
They had a haunted house bouncer. I thought it looked scary to go into, but the kids had no problem.
We ended the day with an old fashioned bottle of root beer. Homemade apple donuts, Carmel apples and our pumpkins. I already can't wait for next year!

Here's the little man. This is the mood he was in that night. He looks like he doesn't feel well. He didn't play with with his siblings. He more less just stood there. He helped daddy with the fire. He loves to help get the fire going.
