Prayers and Swimming

Before I talk about what is going on with us, I want to ask for prayers for a very special little boy who needs all the prayers that he can get. I am sure the majority of you know who I am talking about. Please pray for Stellan and his family during this difficult time. You can check out his story at This poor boy has been through hell and back in his short life. He is about to be life flighted to a specialist in Boston, for the second time, and his parents will leave behind their three young children. My heart breaks for them during this very difficult time. Please God, heal Stellan and give his parents strength and the doctors and nurses the guidance needed to help cure little Stellan.

Prayers for Stellan

David has been begging me for pictures of Tyler's swim lessons. Her lessons are at 8:30 in the morning and I am doing good to even get the kids out the door that early in the morning, not to mention remembering to bring a camera with me. But today I remembered! And David loved seeing the pictures!!

The closest town from the base is 15 minutes away and they just opened up a water park at their Parks and Recreation Center.

This is the lazy river. In the mornings, you can come and walk. I would love to do that, but no kids allowed during this time!!

I hope everyone has a great week!!! We have 6 weeks down in this deployment! WOOHOO!!

  1. Will keep Stellan and his family in my thoughts..I think you have a mermaid there..have you thought abt putting a countdown counter on your blog?

  2. I Love the pics!!!!!!!!! Tyler will be swimming like a pro before you know it!! I wish there was somewhere as nice as this to take Grace for lessons. She can already swim like a fish, but I would love for her to learn more on diving. This is an awesome place. Go Tyler!! Keep up the good work! We love you!!!

  3. That's awesome! You've got almost 2 months down!
