Do your kids ever suffer from low self-esteem?  Ryan (my youngest) sometimes struggles with putting himself down.  I remind him that God made him just the way he is for a purpose and that He has great plans for his life.  But, Ryan is a typical preteen….searching for what makes him “special”….trying to find his place in this world.  Brendan (his big brother) has a passion for computer programming and has found his niche.  Ryan is still looking for his, but I think we may have found it!  For the first time ever,  that we entered a photography contest and Ryan won three blue ribbons (plus the “Best of Section Youth Arts & Crafts” – I’m not even sure what that means) at the Virginia State Fair!  He is so excited…and I am one proud mama 🙂 !  He also has a passion for music and playing guitar.  It’s amazing how different each of my boys are.  God made them both unique and special in their own way!

I wish I had time to write more, but I’ve got a homeschool meeting tonight…

Here are some more pictures of our trip to the fair and school (Brendan chose to stay home and do schoolwork instead of going to the fair with us…I know, CRAZY right?!?!?)
