Elijah will have a shunt put in on August 12. I appologize the updates are few, but you can keep up better with my facebook page under the name Teresa Beck Ryan. Ask to be a friend and I will add you. My time is just very limited right now.
*The yard sale was a bust. We had about 6 customers and made $53, Selah made $15, but the best part was we cleaned out the space in the storage building to start getting supplies for the addition.
*Parkway Baptist Church of Kosciusko's benefit went well. They raised $3035.50, about one month's living expenses. They sold many plates and whole racks, actually selling out. The cakes auctioned off at around $40 (more or less) each. There was also a bluegrass group that sang and played and did a wonderful job in addition to the new church youth choir. We had a good night and Elijah seemed to enjoy it all.
*We are finished selling Pizza Hut discount cards. We do not have a total yet, but the number was low due to the limited amount of Pizza Hut's that accepted the cards. We aren't worried, though, God will provide.
