Happy Memorial Day!   First of all, I would like to thank all the veterans out there for giving so much for our freedom.  Second, to all the men and women out there currently fighting for it!  We are so thankful for you all!

Hope everyone’s holiday weekend was wonderful!  We had a very nice time, just wish Ken would’ve been able to be with us.  Well, we do get to see him in about a week and a half, so we’re looking forward to that.  🙂  IF everything goes according to plan.

Today we didn’t do a whole lot.  Jacob went over to his other cousins house to play with Abbie and Jared.  He wanted to have alone time with them without the younger boys bothering them.  Ha!  It did get up to 91 degrees, so it was hard to do much of anything.  But, I am not going to complain!  I have been so sick and tired of the cold and rain.  So, I’ll just say that I’m not a fan of the humidity and that’s it!  🙂  We finished out the day with having a cookout here at Rachel and Kyle”s.  The Endsley’s came along with Neil, Kristina and Brady.  It was so nice cooking out and the weather cooled off enough where it was comfortable with a nice breeze.  Hopefully we can sleep tonight!  It is still pretty warm in the house. 

Well, tomorrow is going to be or should I say could be a very long day.  We have to head over to the clinic in the morning.  Jacob will have his blood counts checked.  Normally he goes in on Thursday, but because of the fishing trip, we’re going tomorrow.  Anyway, if his counts are good, we’ll be there for about and hour or so.  If they aren’t, they’ll do another blood transfusion which will take about 2-3 more hours.  To make things more interesting, I’ll have Caleb with us.  We’ll find out just how much patience he has sitting around that long……or maybe we’ll find out just how much patience I have.  Either way, I think we’ll both be tested!  🙂

Please continue to pray for Jacob.  Please pray that his blood counts will be good tomorrow.  Also, that he would continue to get stronger and stronger every day.  We know it’s gonna happen.  We know he’ll be strong and running again.  We’re just praying that it happens soon!   We are so thankful for all of you and your prayers!

    Hey Jacob, I’m glad you got to play outside today even if it was so hot. I’m writing this on Tuesday and it was really hot here today for the U.P….it was 84 degrees in Little Lake. I am praying that today goes great for you and that your blood counts are up. We know that God always hears our prayers, even when he answers different than what we want. Thats because He knows more than we do. 🙂 I just love Jesus and love to pray to Him all the time.

    People here are still talking about your benefit dinner. It was so awesome. I loved that hockey stick you received too! It is sharp.

    Are you ready for some jokes? Here they are:

    How do you stop a rooster from crowing on Sunday morning?
    You eat him for dinner saturday night!!!

    How does an alien count to fourteen?
    On his fingers!!!!

    Why did the tonsils get dressed up?
    Because the Doctor was taking them out!!

    Pastor Ron and I keep praying for you! Keep growing stronger!

    Hey Jacob,
    Sounds like you had a GREAT benefit dinner! Sorry Shelby and I couldn’t be there. Colton and Weston had a wonderful time and they said that they were happy to see and visit with you. They kept telling me about all the cool things there.

    So, I am really jealous of the warm weather you’re having down there. It’s been windy and cold here.

    We keep praying everyday that you’ll keep getting stronger and stronger. We can’t wait to see you again.
