World Record Holder

Michael is officially a world record holder!! We went to a sports stacking tournament a while back and Michael stacked great but we've been waiting for the final results to come in. Michael stacked a 15.84 second cycle which set the world record for 4 year olds and under. You can check out the article about it here: - just scroll down to the second box.

And here is the video Tim put together of the tournament. All of Michael's individual stacks also set MI records as did Tim and Michael's double stack. Tim also set a bunch of US records for his adult age division. How cool?!

I'm not really ready to post much, but I just don't feel right posting other things to this blog without first sharing the horrible life-changing news in my life. My mother passed away a couple of weeks ago - I almost can't believe it's been that long already. I talked to her on the phone the night before and she quietly passed away in her sleep during the night. I miss her so much.
Two things have been my saving grace these past weeks. First is faith. My mother was devoted to the Lord and I know that she is experiencing the amazing joys of heaven. And one day I will get to spend eternity with her. I don't know how people make it through this without that hope.
Second is my boys. They keep the joy around and force me to keep my sanity. Michael understands a bit about what is happening and it has been a true blessing to talk to him about death and heaven. It all seems so simple when presented to a 4 year old. The best thing I could leave him with is that it is a sad time because we will miss having her here with us, and it is a happy time because she gets to be in heaven with Jesus!
