Be gentle and not cruel. Embrace humility more than arrogance. Thank others more than you accept thanks. Feel compassion more than apathy. See what others ignore. Hold others close more than you push them aside. Learn more than you teach. Be present more than absent. Give more than you take. -Joanne Cacciatore

K I will try to make this short but descriptive so wish me luck haha!!!  So Hailey and I were making lunch yesterday when she decided to slice her little finger off.  First picture is the finger tip with nail on ice.  Thanks Brandon for the suggestion.  Then they wrapped her hand in red until they could get the doctor.  We left wearing BLUE we are true BLUE THROUGH AND THROUGH!!! She was a good sport.  They tried 4 different things but ended up burning it (cauterizing) it.  I dont know how to spell that.  We did the first bandage change last night so you can see what it looks like!!!

Then this weekend we competed in the "Devil Dash" 5k in las vegas.  It was hotter then HELL but we had a ton of fun.  Cameron had a lot of girls ask for his picture with them so I think he liked it even more.  He said I want to run in every race!!! I AM SURE HE DOES!!! HAHAHA!  We just signed him up for his first triathlon on June 2nd.  We are super duper proud of him and think it will be a blast.  Oh he did 9 obstacles and beat everyone in our group finishing in about 34 minutes. Way to go babe!!!!

 Braxton also participated in the Hershey Games.  He did not want to and just did because basically I told him he needed to.  He lost the race (on purpose) but hey he still competed!  Oh well!!!

Last but not least a quick updated for all of those who have been following.  My Dad got word from the doctor yesterday that they will be amputating the two toes following his big toe.  Just top half but there is no more skin for them to dig away at.  It was not good news at all.  They are waiting until Monday to see about his big toe and we are just praying that doesnt happen.  Surgery is Friday so lots of prayers please.   We hope all is well with everyone.  Thank you all for your support through the trying time on our family.  I appreciate those who have really been there when we have needed them.
