And in September 2009 Mommy was diagnosed with a terminal disease (a genetic form of ALS) that took her to Heaven in July, 2011, leaving Daddy and two young girls to make it on their own.

Sand sand...

...and more sand.

We are off at the beach camping with Evergreen Christian Church. We have been attending there for about 10 months but still don't know hardly anyone as it is a bit on the large side. Even the people we have met this weekend all seem to go to different services.

Over all we have had a great time except for one thing - we are at the beach and there is SAND everywhere. As you will see, this is not a problem for the girls but daddy doesn't tend to like sand that well. The girls are having a blast playing anywhere and everywhere and that is good. They have even found a few of the other kids to play with them:

Yesterday we went to the Tillamook Cheese factory (and museum)where you can watch cheese being made, eat homemade ice cream and see lots of neat stuff. Rebekah and Sarah really like the baby cows. I never thought about the "punny" before, but here are the girls saying "cheese:"

When Grandpa and Grandma heard where we were (1/2 mile from their favorite seafood off the pier shop) they couldn't pass up the opportunity to come down and visit AND bring us crab. They brought live crab that we cooked right here in the campsite and then went and cleaned, iced for a while, and then started eating. Here Rebekah is telling Grandpa how to clean it "just right:"

Its really nice to be able to get away and this camp is only about an hour from home so it cost very little in fuel and camping as a group is relatively inexpensive - that is all nice. The weather has held out reasonably well but that is easy for us to say because we are in the trailer and not in tents. It has rained a few times and promises to rain a bit more tomorrow when people are trying to pack up.

Thank you for all of your support and prayers. Tim and Darlene (and clan), we REALLY appreciate your guys' gift, you are messengers from God!
