Whew, it's been awhile!

Hi there! It sure has been a while since I last posted. We had a big weekend, so I thought I'd fill you in. Bryan wanted to take a vacation, so we headed out for a 4-day trip to Woodland Park. It was wonderful! We stayed in a beautiful mountain house with a "hot pool" (or a hot tub, depending on your age). We took the kids to the North Pole, took a tour of the Cave of the Winds, visited with a great friend whom we hadn't seen for 2 years, went to church in Colorado Springs and just hung out and relaxed. I think everyone loved the entire trip. It was a much needed time away from home with the family.

Oh, we also have some prayer requests from this weekend. A dear, dear man, Bob Tweed, passed away this weekend. He is living in Heaven with his Heavenly Father, but he will be missed by his family and many friends. Please pray that God will comfort his family in the coming days. Also, my Dad will be starting Chemotherapy next week. We found out he had Cancer in the Spring of 2000 and he has maintained relatively good health since then with fairly minimal treatment, but now it is time to move forward. Please pray that the Chemo is effective and that each treatment doesn't make him too ill. Oh, and while I'm at it....please also pray for my Aunt Madlyn, who is also undergoing Chemo for Leukemia. I pray that God gives their doctors wisdom and them comfort and good health during these trying times.
