Prayer Answered...

I told myself I would not call the doctor until this afternoon, but by 7:45 I was calling. Finally around 8:45 this morning I got the news I had been waiting for, Kendrix's moles were benign(I don't really know how to spell that!) but that doesn't really matter because they used a lot of big words that I did not understand except for that one!! I am supposed to call on Monday to find out what the doctor wants us to do from here. Thank you to all who have said a prayer on for Kendrix. I was really worried about this, but I guess I should learn to turn all of that over and trust that it will all work out. That is a hard thing for me to do when it comes to my children.

On the lighter side, Kendrix was wanting to go to my mom's today and I was ready for him to go! On the way there Michael and I were talking about how he was feeling his oats and I said he has cabin fever. Kendrix looked at us, touched his head and said "No I don't have any fever!"

Update on Kendrix....

Yesterday Kendrix had his surgery. It was much more than I thought it would be. On his shoulder they took 2 moles off, they did not tell me they were doing that. He has 10 stitches there and on his hip he has 15 stitches. We will not know anything until Friday or Monday. I was the one that almost couldn't take it. When I saw his back I almost passed out. I was not prepared for what I saw. I will let you all know as soon as I find something out. Thank you all for the words of encouragement and prayer. Kendrix knows you all are praying for him and that makes him happy.

Are you ready for some Football.....

Kayman started 2 a day football practice today. I feel like it is just to hot, but I guess that is the way it has to be. I can't believe that he is old enough for senior high football. I love the atmosphere of football, I just hate it when he is on the bottom of the pile. I do the only thing I know to do, the minute I walk into the game I start praying until the game is over. Michael says I am just silly, I guess it is just a mom thing. The main thing now is to prepare for the big game!
Korie is still practicing basketball and now volleyball. She is growing so fast. I cant believe that she will be a 6th grader. She is ready for school to start and be with her friends.
Kendrix continues to be the same. He loves to sleep and swim. I am trying not to think about Wednesday, it is just always in the back of my mind. I just pray that everything will be just fine. He is starting to realize that not all 7 year olds have to take medicine and shots like he does. He does not like it. I think next summer I will send him to a camp with children that have health problems like him, I think he needs to know that their are other children like him. Please remeber him on Wednesday.
My life is about to turn upside down. I become a teacher on Monday August 18. I will be the self contained classroom teacher at Oak Grove Elementary. I am scared to death! I am ready just scared to think I am in charge. It will be great though. Just remember me though because when that door shuts I don't know what to do!!!

Prayer Request...

I am asking for prayer on behalf of my son Kendrix. On August 6th he will have 2 bioposy's and mole removels from his back. We will have to send it to the pathologist to read and if it is melanoma go to Arkansas Children's hospital for futher treatment. We are certain it is just a skin condition, but the other is always possible. He is such a trooper, I just hate it for him. Please keep him and us in your prayers.

Cardinal Nation....

Well, one word sums up the game on Sunday, AWESOME. Upon arrival at the game, which we got there 2 hours early, the kids were so excited. Kendrix's eyes were huge and he had a million questions. He really wanted Ankiel's autograph and I had to explain that probably that would not happen, he did not understand. We waited and waited until the gates opened and the kids got a lunchbox with Ankiel on it, I really don't know who wanted it worse, me or them! They ran to the bottom of the stands in hopes of getting autographs, but it was the hottest day St. Louis had seen that year, so no autographs were given. Our seats were right above the Cardinal bullpen so the kids loved watching the pitchers. Nobody showed up in the first row seats so the kids got to sit right there. I will not bore you with the rest, but in the bottom of the 9th bases were loaded 1 out and a tie ballgame. Miles hit a walkoff grand slam! Right in the Cardinal bullpen! It was amazing!!! The kids were so excited, ok so was I!

Getting ready for vacation....

Vacation is supposed to be relaxing right? Well, all the moms out there know that this is far from the truth! When we finally get everybody ready somebody forgets something! Well, this summer has been so busy that we have not been able to go anywhere, so we are going to one of my favorite places in the world.....A Cardinal game! To me this is the best vacation, except maybe the beach. My kids are so excited, Kendrix has not been to a game, but can tell you most of the players and what they do. We will leave in the morning after Kayman's 7 on 7 football games. That will be lots of fun!! I hope everybody has a relaxing weekend! We will when we finally get on the road!!

Not as hard as I thought!

Ok guys, I thought this would be hard, but my fear is over and I have entered the world of blogging!! I'm sure my kids will be so proud to have thier lives so everybody can read about them. I think this is a wonderful thing, I have been a blog stalker for many months because I was unable to do this for my self, or so I thought. I have enjoyed reading about the goings on of many people, I feel like I can keep in touch of everbody this way. I might not be as good as some about doing this daily, but I will try.

Just a little about my family, Kayman is going into the 10th grade and just passed his driving test(HUGE SIGH!) I am not ready for this, but I guess that is how all parents feel. He keeps us busy most of the time, he just finished his baseball season on Monday and started football last Monday. He is a good kid most of the time, just the usual 15 year old stuff in thinking he knows it all!!

Korie is my daughter and she is 11. She is nothing like me and that is so wonderful!! She loves basketball and soccer. That keeps us busy during the seasons that Kayman is not playing. She does very well in school and does this without my having to make her. I love to watch her intensity in what she does on and off the court I could not have asked for a better daughter, the years ahead will be wonderful!!

Finally Kendrix, what can I say about this little boy? He has the best personality, anybody that meets him just loves him. He has been through so many trying times in his life and just comes through smiling! He has taught me so much! He has the biggest heart and never meets a stranger. I am so excited to see what he becomes because I believe that God has huge plans for this little boy!

My husband Michael is wonderful. He would do anything for anybody. He has allowed me to attend school for the last 7 years (Yes 7!) to get my degree. Now that I have done that he has been working hard in my classroom. He is a hard worker and wonderful dad! I am truly blessed to have him as my husband!
This is long, but this is it. My family, I will attempt to keep this updated from now on. I am having trouble doing the pictures, I cant get them where I want them to go! Hope I haven't bored you to much, stay tuned life is never boring at the Bryant house!!!

Maybe I can do this??? I will try and then I will start to leave stuff regularly. This is just a test.

I think I did it. This is my family at the beach last year
