Gastroparesis Research Study

Last week and this one, I’ve made quick trips to San Francisco. It’s a 6 hour drive north from home, so it’s a good thing I like to drive, I guess! The trips have been for appointments with the California Pacific Medical Center to go through screening tests to be enrolled in the Gastroparesis 2 […]

Foursquare Connection 2014

Right after our church gathering on Sunday, I left for our annual Foursquare Connection in Dallas, TX. The event happens Monday – Thursday, so as I’m writing this on Tuesday night, we’re halfway through. Foursquare Connection is the annual gathering of our Foursquare pastors. It’s kind of like a big family reunion. We gather for […]

A Journey of Outrageous Proportions

It seems like both yesterday and forever ago that I admitted Jonathan to Heritage School on May 2, 2011. I was an emotional wreck! I made the pilgrimage to admit Jonathan at Heritage myself on May 1-2, 2011. It’s hard to believe it’s already time for him to come home. How the decision came about […]

Why Is the Sun Up in the Middle of the Night?

I’m in Chicago on a couple hour layover. It’s 4:10 am according to my body, but Chicago believes it’s 6:10 am. I left LAX at about 10:45 pm. All this makes for a short night, but I’m sure my body will painfully remind me of that in short order once I arrive in Christiansburg, Virginia. […]

It’s Always Hard To Leave

Friday morning, Jonathan and I both got up early. Actually, he always gets up early. The only different is that I got up early. Either way, it was just the two of us for a while. He ate breakfast, I enjoyed watching him, and we both took turns at initiating some good conversation. After Colleen […]

Last Full Day

We started off a bit earlier today, at least for us! After breakfast, it was on to The Living Planet Aquarium. Not a big one, but definitely an adventure, filled with great fish (the kind for looking, not eating….I don’t do fish!), for both viewing and even touching for some! The day warmed up quite […]

Local And Lazy

This morning, Colleen, Jonathan and I made breakfast together. His favorite: Chocolate Chip Pancakes. Josh slept in quite late, so the three of us ate together and had some really good conversation as well. We’re so proud of how far Jonathan has come! At the same time, it’s always hard to know how much of […]

Catching Up

We enjoyed a GREAT day today! After sleeping in a bit and lounging for the morning, weaving in and out of conversations, we left for a day in Provo. We had hoped to get some snow tubing in. Last weekend, the area received what we heard was the most snowfall of the entire season. It […]

Reunited!

Well, I wouldn’t necessarily recommend Virgin River as a hotel. Not a bad price, but the room was a bit step down from a Motel 6. I don’t mind Motel 6 when I’m traveling on my own, but when Colleen is with me, I like to provide something nicer. Again, the nice thing was having […]

We’re In Mesquite, Nevada!

After a great morning at church, we left town about 1:30 pm. We’re headed to see Jonathan for a visit this week! Last time we did this drive in December, we did it straight through. Took us 13 hours, and while Colleen’s joints did OK on the drive itself, she paid for it in pain […]
