Hey everyone! Well we haven't blogged in a while but there hasn't really been much going on. Its been really cold this week and Dad has been very tired, so we've been sticking around the house a lot. He's started coming off a few of his steroids this week and they actually give him energy so to be coming off of them makes him even more tired! Anyways just thought I'd write a quick update! There is a picture below of the puzzle dad's been working on this week! Have a good day! Elisabeth

Just wanted to pass along that Justin called today and he got the job he applied for at Target it is a really nice promotion he is now an electrical mechanic, I might have the title a little wrong, but it is a good career and the next step in becoming an Electrical Systems Engineer. They will work with him really well with his school schedule as they want him to get his degree so he can move into that job. Its a big deal as they do not offer these jobs under normal circumstances to their employees they hire from outside the company and they approached him about applying for it. He had to take the engineering tests and he has been waiting for the results of his interview for a week or so and they called him in today and offered him a contract.
Also we have not passed on the news to very many people as we weren't sure if it was okay yet but we got the okay and are excited to tell everyone that Cory and Jamie are expecting a new baby in June! So the family is sure growing. We drove by Medline today and saw Jamies car in the expectant mother spot. Lots to be thankful for today.

Well Dad's still pretty sore and tired from his appointment this week and not a lot is going on. So I thought I'd write what about what I did today! Gavin and I left this morning for Davenport with our team and we swam in a meet up there! We had a lot of fun watching each other swim and Gavin swam really well! He swam his first ever 25 fly and 100 free and he did extremely well! Most kids his age just swim 25's and 50's but the coaches moved him into an older age division so that he could try the 100 free! It was so much fun to stand by the side of the pool video taping and cheering him on! Anyways he's quite the little swimmer :) I posted a few pics below of today and also a picture of Dillan and Justin when we skyped them this morning! Have a good night everyone! Elisabeth

Lina Sandell Berg, 1832-1903
Day by day and with each passing moment, strength I find to meet my trials here; trusting in my Father's wise bestowment, I've no cause for worry or for fear. He whose heart is kind beyond all measure gives unto each day what He deems best---lovingly, its part of pain and pleasure, mingling toil with peace and rest.
Ev'ry day the Lord Himself is near me with a special mercy for each hour, all my cares He fain would bear, and cheer me, He whose name is Counsellor and Pow'r. The protection of His child and treasure is a charge that on Himself He laid: "As thy days, thy strength shall be in measure," this the pledge to me He made.
What a comfort this old hymn was to my heart when I read it this morning! I have struggled with feeling so responsible for taking care of Lance, especially since we have got back home..... Obviously neither Lance nor I would do anything to jeopardize his health, but there is NO WAY we can control every little germ, blood test , GVH, virus................... you get the idea! God comforted me, this SLOW learner, so graciously! Great to be reminded by the words of this hymn ...."The protection of His child and treasure is a charge that on Himself He laid"...... NOT on me.... like I could do anything anyway!! And..."As thy days, thy strength shall be in measure"..... Tomorrow we head to Iowa City for a long day of testing....... Trusting My Gracious, Comforting God.... Day by Day, Moment by Moment....., ---Penny
