Long time, no blog!

Today we went to the library and got new library cards for all the children.  Kate checked out probably thirty books!  I am glad that reading is a hobby of the children.  Karsten's isn't quite into reading yet, but I remember that Dane was the same way and now Dane is an avid reader too.

I tried to call Texas Children's Hospital today to set up an appointment to see the Pulmonary Hypertension specialist, Dr. Mallory.  Unfortunately, the cardiologist at BAMC hadn't faxed everything in yet, so I couldn't.  So I contacted the cardiologist's office and they took care of everything and I should be getting a call from Texas Children's here in the next couple of days.  We will have to drive to Houston, but that's ok.  Everything we do is for our experience and growth.

Todd is into week 2 of school for his CRNA.  Today was long for him, he said.  I am not worried about the next three years, all will be fine.  I remember when Todd was going to school full time, working full time (at one point he was even working two jobs!), and I was pregnant with Karsten.  Those were tough days.  I am not too worried about getting through the next three years. I believe the Lord prepares us for things ahead.  So while something may seem difficult now, don't just deal with it! Take it and run, because it might be the help you need!

We are enjoying the neighborhood pool.  It isn't real big, but not too small either  Seth loves to go in the pool with his life jacket on because he can move around on his own in the water.  He isn't a real quick mover, but he's learning!  Alex loves his scuba gear!  He is one great dolphin in the water!
