This afternoon I took Zane for a drive to get him to fall asleep. When I came home I was putting him in bed and I saw something on his covers. I thought at first that it was the Master Mantis toy we had gotten from McDonalds a while ago, but then it moved and I looked again. It was a lizard! with Zane also in the bed. I flung the covers and yelped, it flew through the air flailing its legs and landed at the bottom of the bed on the floor. This is a first ever. I told Hannah to run and go get DAD because there was a lizard in the room. Needless to say it was a fun adventure for all catching him and putting him outside and all the while Zane was fast asleep in his bed.
Zane's favorite word is diaper. Just say it to him and see what happens. I dare you! Say it with a straight face, say it in a whisper. Any way you say it will have him rolling in fits of giggles. Back and forth it goes until he is kicking a screaming diaper and laughing his head off. Gotta love that kid.

What can I say, I feel like I am living in a roller coaster of circumstance and emotion. I think I have really run the gamut this month. We were prepared mentally to move to New Hampshire to work, but in the end the company said it would be too expensive to move Nate there and then to move him to AZ in November. Oh well, this is still the back up plan to go to AZ when they open their clinic there. In the meantime Nate has a sales job training starting next week. The potential is enormous (as are all sales jobs), but we will see. I hope it works out and that he does well. I have learned to never count on anything until it actually happens. This experience has also taught me a lot about waiting and trusting God.
