He looks like he's stepped out of a 1970's movie with him starring as the neighborhood pimp! LOL. Thank goodness we live in the year 2009 and that he has no aspirations to break into that line of employment.
He does, however, begin training for his CDL's on Monday. Please be in prayer that he will find employment soon afterward that will not have him "over the road" and away from home. That will also mean that we will get to move into our OWN home again.
Have a great weekend!

It seems like just yesterday I had to call Eric at work and tell him I was most definitely in labor and assure him that everything would be ok even though it was 5 weeks early.
We went to the hospital 45 minutes away and were ushered into the awaiting LDR room to be assessed. After all the preliminary tests I was given several shots of that lovely medication to stop labor and told to rest for the night. By 10 the next morning Mack was on his way regardless of the meds and it had set in. I would be a mother of 5!
In the beginning I felt that it would be much more than I could ever handle, but God is so good and has given me the best children anyone has ever experienced. The oldest ones pitch in and the younger ones have just fallen into the routine.
Now my baby is one and there's no turning back... Everyday he learns something new and the expression of wonder and amazement never gets old. For that very thing I would have a million more.
On the Saturday after his first birthday Mack had his first haircut, while I was pretty much resigned to it, I had no idea how much it would change his baby features into that of a little boy. Of course he's still "my baby" but something grew up immediately.
No matter how old any of my children get each of them are my babies... But the actualization of the baby-ness... There's nothing sweeter in the world.

This is a garter like the one Amy found.
This is Abby's albino corn snake. (above)
This is Monty, the Albino Burmese Python (He's not the biggest).
I think that is a pretty fair representation. I'm sure this post will deter any visitors at our house. LOL Hope you enjoy.
