Josh Frederick crashed at the Lake Havasu WORCS race. He broke his back, underwent long and complicated surgery, and as of this posting has yet to recover feeling in his legs. The accident only happening a few days ago, they have obviously not exhausted all options for Josh’s recovery. The ATV world is holding its collective breath for Josh and his family. They are thinking, hoping, and praying for Josh to have a full recovery. “The Animal” of ATV racing is more than a badass on a four wheeler. He’s the stuff legends are made of, but honestly Josh is just an incredibly skilled and talented rider who came from a humble ATV start and worked day and night to achieve his dreams and goals, and it showed on the track. To top it off, he’s a nice family guy and a role model.
So it’s incredibly poor timing and just downright unfair for a man of his caliber to be in the hospital now with an uncertain future in the sport we all love!
We are pleased to be posting this instead of the alternative however, so it’s not all bad. I don’t think Josh is the type of guy to give up. Even if a full recovery is currently out of reach – and changes in modern medicine and science may change that – Josh is going to continue to be all the things he currently is – a nice guy, a devout father, a loving husband, and man who works hard to achieve his dreams and goals, and hopefully there’s a place in the industry for him after he recovers.

Shelby: Best line of the day- I'm teaching sharing time and the lesson is on the resurrection. I ask the primary if anyone has ever lost someone they loved. Breckan raises his hand and somberly says "Yes, I lost Degan"
Rachel: So were driving up to a garage sell by your old house and poor Tucker started bawling. I couldn't figure it out then I realized he was thinking about Degan.
Scarlet: I've caught Jesse in his room holding the picture of all the boys at the park just staring it with sad puppy dog eyes. I know he misses Degan.
Degan is very lucky to have such good friends and I have made it my personal mission to make sure they stay good friends!

A flyer came home from school for this fun after school class that involved building things with legos and I knew the boys would LOVE it so we signed them up and we were right they had fun! After one of the classes Darin was asking them who they buddied up with to build their projects and they said they worked together but Degan said next time he was going to buddy up with this cute girl who goes! I don't think he ever worked up the nerve to ask her to partner up but I'm not looking forward to his teenage years!
