How can something that used to be so important to me, have fallen so far by the wayside? We are all busy people and I guess that I can use that as an excuse just like everything else. Playing catch-up seems inevitable, so a brief picture of what has happened in the last six months seems appropriate.

It is the 9th of February and we are snowed in, and out of school for over a week...I decided what better time to catch up on the blog and hopefully rekindle a joy that I found in blogging.
Carson and I both started back to school in September...Carson in first grade, and myself as a first year Special Education teacher for children with autism. While it keeps both of us busy...I love working in the same school that Carson attends.
We immersed ourselves in everything Conway and had a blast doing so.... This is the 1st annual Trunk or Treat.
Carson wanted to be a police officer...closest we could find that wasn't too cheesy was a S.W.A.T costume.... HE LOVED it and was mighty cute!
Thanksgiving came, and relatives couldn't make it in...so the three of us, along with a teacher friend who could not get home, celebrated the holiday together.
Christmas Eve came and we prepared for Santa and the reindeer with cookies, milk and carrots. Of course we had to leave Santa a letter.
This was our first Christmas in Virginia, and while it was nice with just our little family...we missed friends and family in Texas tremendously...
Santa was on the ball this year and FINALLY brought Carson the drum set he had been asking for for the past couple of years. Santa was ever so wise and brought a drum set that ONLY works with headphones...or plugged into a stereo system....Carson doesn't own a stereo system...and if I get my way...he never will :)
Wayne and Carson goofing off on the bus to Disney's Hollywood Studios
This is just a brief glimpse of all that has kept us busy since September. As of this writing we are going on day four of being snowed in...and are waiting the next round of snow that mother nature sends us. We missed all but one day last week at school...and so far we are out until at least Friday. Who knows... I may really get back into blogging....before this snowcation is over!

Words really seem inadequate trying to express how sorrowful, and sad we are to tell of the passing of Carter Harris age 6. He was an angel in many ways here on earth, but now he truly is dancing with the angels. His passing is bittersweet. We are sorrowful and broken hearted that he no longer is here with us on earth, but rejoice knowing that he is completely healed! His parents, Courtney and Skip as well as his big brother Tommy and little sister Caroline, need your prayers as they walk down a different path without Carter. Please take a moment and visit the Carter's Crusaders blog linked to the left and read about the journey this amazing child has finished, and the road ahead for the family he leaves behind.

This was last December....Carson and Carter watching the Fredericksburg Christmas parade. It was BITTER cold, and we had the first snow of the season start to fall during the parade. The kids were all bundled, waiting patiently for Santa to arrive. The parade this year was last Saturday....again it was bitter cold, and again we had the first snow of the season. It was perfect....except Carter wasn't there. I find it very hard to even imagine what has occurred to this brave little man in less than a year. He was diagnosed in February with an inoperable brain tumor. He has been fighting ever so valiantly and unfortunately there is nothing left that the doctors can do.
Please stop, and add Carter, his family, especially his sweet Mama to your prayers. Waiting on God, waiting on the inevitable has to be excruciating. Please pray for peace, acceptance, understanding and most of all comfort as Carter is called home to his saviour.
