Neal has been remodeling my laundry room/sewing room. He took down some walls, added some walls. He is working really hard. Judson has been right by his side helping him every step of the way. Some afternoons I can hear Judson in there hammering, just like he's seen Neal do. These 2 guys are precious gifts to me from my Father. I love them so much and am so thankful for them!!
I'm not sure who was dreading the first day of school more, me or Judson. We have really had a hard time this summer with the idea of going to school everyday. Many nights Judson would start crying because he didnt want to go to school. It broke Neal and I's heart to see him so upset and fearful of school. We prayed with him and for him a lot. I have prayed all summer for his teacher. Well, the first day of school finally came. God gave me a very precious gift!! We went to meet his teacher, Mrs Sanders, and Judson loved it. When we got in the car he said, "Mom, I really like my classroom." Mrs Sanders is a precious Christian lady. She loves the children, but more importantly she loves the Lord. Tuesday morning Judson woke up and said he was ready to go to school. Thank you God!! So far he has done really well. He has had a couple of days when he didnt want to go, but as soon as we got there and he saw his cousins or his friends he was okay!! This is the only picture I got of the first day of school. I was afraid to hang around and make to big of a deal about it.

Neal took Judson to play golf a couple of weeks ago. I'm not sure who had more fun, Judson or Neal. They next day Neal went out and bought Judson some small clubs. They practice in the back yard and Neal says Judson is pretty good. Neal called yesterday to see if Judson wanted to go play the par 3. Judson couldn't wait. He wanted to ask Neal if he should wear his cleats or tennis shoes. He also wanted to know what kind of shirt Neal had on. He had to wear a shirt like Daddy's and tuck it in. Neal definately has a little shadow. What a great role model Judson has!!!
