Quick Updates

The last several weeks have been fairly intense around the Kuzma household. Here’s a couple quick updates and a chuckle for you: Jonathan seems to be doing pretty well at Heritage School in Provo, Utah. We miss him like crazy! Not that one ever knows what a situation like this will be like, but I […]

The Cruise That Almost Was

I am writing from, of all places, downtown Seattle, Washington….NOT a place we had planned to stop when we left last Wednesday with some very good friends for San Francisco, where we spent the night. On Thursday, we boarded the Sea Princess and sailed for our 25th anniversary cruise to Alaska. The first two days […]

Good Weekend

The long, but good, weekend, started too early for my taste on Friday morning when the alarm went off at 5:00 am. Colleen, Jonathan and I headed out at 6:30 for Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. I went through my first test with them in this gastrointestinal journey I’ve been on for the last 7 months. The […]

Easter Earthquake & Spring Break

I didn’t feel it because the boys and I were on the freeway toward Indio, but what a wild thing to have an earthquake on Easter! What a great reminder that we are NOT in control of life around us and that anything can happen at any time! Easter celebration at NewHeart was great! We’ll […]

Wherever You Go, There You Are

The last two days have been a bit hard to get my mind around. Colleen and I are at El Capitan Canyon, north of Santa Barbara. We left around 3:30 Sunday afternoon. I drove from home to one of our favorite produce stands in Somis. Colleen drove from there. Throughout this physical challenge, I haven’t […]

Preparing to Unplug

Great Saturday! One of the goals of my sabbatical has been to experience, and allow my family to experience, what it’s like to live a somewhat “normal” schedule of life. A Pastor’s schedule is quite interesting. Many think we only work one day a week (when we’re preaching). But nothing could be further from the […]

Summer Sabbatical Scoop 6

Since returning from our camping trip to Buellton, sabbatical has been hopping. Is that an oxymoron? Should sabbaticals be this busy? Apparently, only if you’re at home during them! The week we returned, Colleen was at one of her two jobs (nursing and teaching) for most of the week. Josh had football practice every day […]

Summer Sabbatical Scoop 5

It’s Sunday night and Colleen and the boys took off for home a while ago. Colleen works in the morning and the boys have their own different football activities they have to be back for. I am taking advantage of the time for some solitude, as well as cleaning the RV and packing things up […]

Summer Sabbatical Scoop 3

It’s a beautiful night in downtown Buellton! If you’ve never been here, you do. not. know. what you are missing! And I’m not referring to Pea Soup Andersen’s either, though I am fairly partial to The Hitching Post and their Garlic Roasted Artichoke. Anyway, I digress….. It’s a few minutes before midnight. I am at […]

Summer Sabbatical Scoop 2

Wondering where “Summer Sabbatical Scoop #1” is? It’s here, but titled differently. In the last post, I offered that if anyone had a better name for these updates, bring ’em on! Well, some did, and I chose this one. Been two weeks since the previous update. Since then, Josh promoted from 8th grade, meaning we […]
