Out of town


We drove our 3 kids and Amy's 2 to Springfield, MO. The 5 kids behaved wonderfully and the trip went smoothly. We stopped in Groom at the Cross and had dinner at the World’s Largest McDonalds in Vinita, OK. We did get quite a few looks whenever we stopped, with the kids all looking so much alike and being so close in age people thought Jeremiah, Sarah, and Joshua were triplets. Each time we took a bathroom break people stared as if we were one of those clown cars at the circus. The kids just kept on piling out one by one.


Kurt and I drove from Springfield to Little Rock to visit Aarron in the Children's Hospital. What a blessing it was to see Josue and JoAnna! What a miracle to see Aarron, to hold his precious hand: Thank you God for saving his life! We also saw JoAnna’s sister Julie and met her brother Jason, they both were so fabulous and it was reassuring to know they had been there to support our awesome friends.


We left Little Rock around 4 PM. It broke my heart to say goodbye, they are so dear to us and I hate that we live so far apart. It rained all the way to Springfield; we got to Amy’s around 11.


We drove to Carthage, MO to Pastor Jerry’s new church. We had a wonderful time. The people were so welcoming and loving. It is so good to see that Pastor Jerry and Twanda have found such a caring new home. After church they took us out to eat at King’s Chef, the absolutely best Chinese restaurant I have ever been too. We gave lots of hugs good bye; we will miss them so much as well. After we got back to Amy’s Kaleb and Charleigh got to talk to Aarron on the phone, it was so good to hear his voice, when we left on Saturday he could only whisper.


Spent the day with Amy and the kids; went to the Springfield Conservation Nature Center, came home and Joel cooked hamburgers on the grill. Fun Fun. Not sure if we are coming home tomorrow or not. Tuesday is Aarron’s 5th Birthday, we may head back to Little Rock before going home.

I've always thought your family reminded me of a clown car! Even without the extra two!
