Just wanted to do a quick update and let those that read the last post know that our dear friend John Martinson passed away Tuesday night after a week long battle. We are very sad that he is no longer with us. Please pray for his wife, who is pregnant with their first child, and family. They need it more than anything right now. I never thought that I would be attending the funeral for somebody my own age. Life is very precious. Let those that you love know so everyday.

It's been a long time!

So there's been quite a bit going on in the Beasley household. I haven't uploaded pictures to our picture site yet, but I'll post on here when I do. A lot has actually happened since the last post (obviously). First, we went to the midnight book release for Harry Potter #7. Let's just say it was interesting. We went in our normal clothes and we were in the minority! haha! It was pretty fun. They had a costume contest, crafts and a debate. We got there about 10:30 or 11 so we missed a lot of stuff, but we just hung out and had fun. The best part is saying that we were there to get our reserved copy at midnight! I went and picked up our wristband from Borders that morning, so we were in the first group to get our books. Of course I had to drive home that night so Justin could read on the way home! Then I went to bed when we got home and he didn't come to bed for a few hours later! What can I say except that he's a true Harry Potter fan. It was an interesting night, but it was pretty fun! Then, at the beginning of August I was able to attend a scrapbook conference that came to Charlotte. I had a blast! Thanks Mom! I had classes and activities Thursday night, and all day Friday and Saturday. By all day I mean 8:30 AM to 11:30 PM! I had a blast though! I made a lot of projects (most of which still aren't finished because I'm missing supplies). When I get everything together I'm gonna take pictures and post those on our site. Other than that, we haven't done too much yet. School started back up, and I can't decide if I'm excited or not. Right now I'm too stressed to feel anything else! Long story short, the Special Education program at my school is a mess! I'm a first year teacher and I have the most experience in Severe/Profound Special Education! I think once things calm down I'm really going to enjoy this school though. Justin just started taking online accounting classes from LSU and once he gets enough accounting credits he's going to take the CPA (Certified Public Accountant) exam. Hopefully this will help him in his job ie: promotions and raises :) !

The real reason I'm writing is because we have a dear friend in our ward here that is in need of desperate prayers and thoughts on his behalf. I won't write the whole story, but here's a shortened version of it. He was in a REALLY bad car accident Tuesday morning on his way to work. He was air lifted to the hospital and he had internal bleeding, which they've stopped, broke both legs, both ankles, his pelvis, both arms (one in two places) and his shoulder. He is currently in the Trauma/ICU unit and was making improvements until today. He is on a respirator and is having problems with his heart rate, blood pressure and lungs. I'm asking anybody that reads this to PLEASE offer up a prayer in behalf of John Martinson. If you would like to see updates on his progress here is the website.

Thank you so much!

Both of us have a greater appreciation for the blessings in our life, especially our friends, family and our faith. Please remember everything you have been given and give thanks everyday! We love you all!
