I don't know how, but I get so behind with things. Those that know that I'm on facebook probably hate me, b/c I never look at it. Blogging is about all I can handle these days.
To catch up, since David's birthday Brian had his nose surgery. It went very well. He recovered like a champ and surprised both of us with how well it went. He is still a little sore but doing great.
We took the kids to Sea World which was a lot of fun. David & Daniel loved Shamu and David fed the dolphins, which he seemed to get a big kick out of. I hadn't been in years, so I think I enjoyed it just as much as they did. It is much harder to go with kids, however, I wouldn't exactly call it relaxing. I posted some pics of our day.
Last week, Brian's mom called to tell us that his dad's biopsy came back for prostate cancer. It obviously shook us up a bit. He has had further testing this week to assess if it is contained or has spread to other areas. We should know more next week. Hearing the news brought me to realize, we can get so lazy and take so much for granted. Why does it always take something drastic to bring us back where we should be- in daily devotion with God, praying for others, appreciating all that we have. Lately, it has been on my heart that being separated from family makes less sense than it used to. I realize there are issues, like jobs and finances etc. but more and more I wish we could manage to be closer. It is a tall order I know but God has plans for us wherever it may be- I guess I'll leave it up to him. We love you Pappoo!
