A few things

First of all, and most importantly DANIEL WAS SAVED!!!
Monday night after I had tucked him in bed we heard him crying. Stephen went in to check on him and he was crying saying" I need to be saved". Stephen talked to him, showed him Bible verses and prayed with him. What a sweet moment.
We are all so excited, the smile didn't leave his face until this morning (this is Wednesday). How precious.
We don't know when he will be baptized, but we will let everyone know when the date is.

Second,
Today the boys had a cooking competition ala Iron Chef. The secret ingredient was bologna. They had 45 minutes and all cooked at the same time. It was such fun listening to them.
Samuel presented me with a "bologna skewer" and "bologna nachos". The skewer had onions, carrots, and of course fried bologna all on a knife/skewer. The nachos were made up of two different chips, lettuce and fried bologna seasoned with a bbq rub and Cavendars.
David made a "bologna salad".It had large lettuce leaves, chunks of carrots ("because mom I know you like chunky carrots in your salad",) pickles, and bologna, all with a dressing of red cooking wine, lemon juice and Cavendars.
Daniel made a "bologna burger". It had two pieces of fried bologna spiced with paprika, and taco seasoning all on a toasted bun.
I had to declare a winner so David won. His presentation was beautiful and colorful. His prize is two lunches today and possible breakfast for lunch tomorrow.
They were so cute and quite Iron Chef-like in their presentations to me-the judge. It was the cutest thing. Now, I wish I had videotaped it. TOO CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!

ps. Did I tell you that this was all their idea. All of it, I had nothing to do with it at all.

That is wonderful that he is saved! Praise God! What great news to share! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Glad testing went well for Samuel too! Looks like guys are still caught up in baseball too. I thought I saw your ds and dh at the field the other day. Maybe we'll catch up with each other one of these days! Hope you're enjoying your summer:)
