It was the FIRST time this EVER happen.

Well yesterday was a first for us in Wyoming....
It was the first time I ate at the Don Pedros on Front Street.
It was the first time I got to go to lunch without "MY" children in a LOOOONNNGG time.
It was also the first time I answered my phone to the Principal saying I needed to get to Tanners school ASAP and that the police were on their way.. Now to remind you all Tanner is the one that if it is during the school day and a schhol number pops up I automatically answer the phone with an I'm on my way or What did he do now...
Needless to say he cant go back to school until Thursday that will the 21st.. Yes I know.. what am I going to do??????????????? ADVICE??
A BIG thank you goes out the school though, they did an awesome job!!!!

*Dad, Tayson, and Paul all have strep---I think it is something in the Diet Coke, they are the only3 that drink that NASTY stuff..
*It has rained since last night, so it is GLOOMY.

Now on to Our New Adventure!!!!!

Throughout the last 2 years my life has been a roller coaster ride of ups and downs, pride and disappointment. Somethings I have kept to myself and others I have shared openly with people. The one thing that I have kept to myself, with the exception of Jennie and Mom and Dad, is the fact that when I have to mark the box on Tanners paperwork that states he has a diagnoises of "MENTAL RETARDATION" about kills me.. I have come to grips with all his other diagnoises, but that gets me everytime...
I have decided once again to bite off more than I can chew.....
I want to start a Special Olympics team in Evanston.. It may take alot, but in the end I know it will be worth it..
I hope to share awareness of the need for special needs kids activities in our town.. It is a GREAT need in this area and after all the support that I found in Idaho I hope to be able to share it here.. If I cant do this I have to travel 40 miles to the "Valley" for Tanner to participate in sports. That I find hard to swollow. We can do this in Evanston I know we can!!!!!! There is no reason anyone with a special needs child should have to travel that far for their child to participate in something as awesome as SPECIAL OLYMPICS!!!!!
