Thank you so much for your faithful prayers for Logan. My sweet nephew went home from the hospital Saturday afternoon. He’s still got swelling in his brain, and he will be on anti-seizure medication until the swelling recedes, but for now, he’s doing much better.
Today, I wanted to share a little bit of our recent trip to Cato (the little community that Dennis grew up in). If you’ve been hanging around the blog for long, you know that we celebrate the Fourth of July in right fashion, with a fish fry and turtle race at the church. It’s always a fun night, filled with good food and good fun.
This year was no exception.
In years past, the men in our family have gone to great lengths (dragging the pond, etc.) to secure turtles for our entries in the race. This year, turtle acquisition was much easier, as Pop had set up a trap in the pond several months prior.
A couple of days before the race, they checked the trap and were surprised to find five turtles in there. Who knows how long they’d been there. Not us. At any rate, we had several turtles to race (and share).
As usual, Lauren named all of our turles, but for the life of me, I can’t remember any of them except Sweet T(ea). Both Lauren and Micah had a turtle that placed, but Logan’s didn’t do so well, so he demanded a rematch when we got home from the church.
Much fun was had by all. Hope you enjoy this video of the rematch. As you can tell, Logan’s turtle performed well :)
Until next time, grace and peace.
