Choose Life

H1, H2, & Big Boy Life on the (L)edge

Begun in the aftermath of Katrina, this blog was a way to keep family and friends updated as the family struggled to return to a semblance of normalcy. Now, more than four years later, the memories are still strong, the family is, to some extent, scattered. However, life did go on, and this is our story.

September 24, 2008


The well seems to have run dry as far as blogging of late is concerned. But, since Big J has seen fit to chide me for my silence, I will attempt a posting.

H1/DIL1 are still without power in Houston, although both were able to return to work on Tuesday. Still, H1 insisted that DIL1 come to NOLA and work out of the NOLA office until power is restored, so she arrived here Thursday evening.

Molly-moo is officialy two! Her birthday was Monday and we all gathered for cake and ice cream. She was cute as a button as she opened presents, walked around hugging her stuffed toys, and eating H2's cake with him.

*continued from yesterday*
DLG has some thoughts about Molly turning two, as well as some thoughts on Ian and those teenage years. You might also notice that H1 will be in NOLA for the weekend, which should bring a smile to the face of DIL1!!

I continue to struggle with reading assignments for my Theology classes. Gustav and Ike resulted in the rescheduling of two classes which effectively eliminated the extra week between classes that was in the original schedule. Still, the classes are VERY interesting. I'm enjoying them immensely.

This has been quite a summer as far as our Ugandan friends is concerned. We've seen Fr. Deo several times as he has passed through NOLA on several occasions in between mission appeals around the country. Also, Fr. Daniel is visiting friends in NOLA so we've taken him to dinner twice. And Fr. Andrew, who is also in the U.S. doing mission appeals will be in NOLA in the next week or so, and we hope to see him as well.

One of our "kids" from Uganda, Michael, has entered a seminary in Tanzania. Another, Constant, is now in a teacher's college in Uganda. It is good to see them both doing well. Cissy is still in what is the equivalent of high school, and struggling. Please keep her in your prayers. Her future is not terribly bright if she doesn't succeed in her studies.

We're having several days of really beautiful weather, with lots of sunshine, high's in lower to mid 80s and lows around 70. Near perfect weather for two-wheeling around town.

That's about all I've got for now. Take care. God loves you!

Thanks for the update Triple D!

Big and Little J are enjoying the much needed rain in Lynchburg, VA (home of Little J's sister - the other J (twin sister Julie)). Headed back to Banner Elk today.

Good luck with your classes...study hard!
