This is a public "diary" of a family whose little girl started a battle with inoperable cancer in April 2005. In December 2007 our house burned down. 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. Over several years of ups and downs, you will get into our hearts, minds and souls as we share joys and sorrows. It can sometimes be very difficult to read. We hope it is also uplifting. Please find joy in what you read here.

New Campsite

We have moved to the eastern side of the mountains. I don't think I have ever been over Stevens (Stephens?) Pass before today. The truck did beautifully, keeping the speed limit of 60 up the entire slope and then almost not needing the brakes at all down the other side with its built in engine breaking. Up and over that pass at 17,000 lbs and we still got 9mpg which I don't think is too bad for what we were pulling.

The biggest news is that Sarah continues to ride. Today we went from "Daddy do I have to?" to "Daddy, can I go one more time PLEASE????" I actually sat out at the end of our site and cried watching her run up and down the lane on her bike. The hardest part for me is Rebekah needing to do one thing at one speed and Sarah another.

This is going to be interesting.
