A busy time

I apologize for not posting in a few weeks. Things around the Strnad household have been very busy. Knowing what Dave does for a living, you can imagine. I have been trying to pray through my worry during these tricky economical times. I am mostly concerned with the level of stress in his life and not wanting that Wegener's disease to come out of remission. We are both constantly reminded that God is in control and to give it back to Him, daily....sometimes many times in a day!

We had a vacation week planned for the last week in June, but it fell through due to the market instability, and Dave needing to be around to get his clients through this weird time. We are hoping to take a few days off during the upcoming weeks, and take the kids to some fun places around Southern California.

VBS starts this coming week, and follows into the remainder of July. I usually work at least one of those weeks, and this year is no different. We have a lot of great churches out here, so the kids go to three different VBS programs every year. This year, Davey will even get to work at one. He's a big kid of 10, now! Joey just completed two weeks of church camp at the Church of Christ. He had a great time during the past two weeks!

The kids are also keeping busy with music lessons, fencing lessons, and swimming. Busy, busy!

I just finished my first block of classes, and am proud to say that I was able to pull off two A's for the first two courses. I am now taking two more classes, so I hope I can maintain that average. Not bad for an old lady! :)

Nothing new on the transplant front. Unfortunately, we lost a family member last week, so most of our attention has been helping the immediate family get through their loss. We are hoping to hear about my testing within the next three weeks, sometime.

That's about all for now.....I hope all of you are doing well and enjoying your summer break.
