One Hour Left to Denver

So Mama is having a throwing up and bone pain kind of day, but we are trying!  The kids have been great, except one stop when they just needed a new game because they were over freeze tag.  Easy fix! That’s when we taught them leap frog!  When we left there, we listened to some kid-science podcast, to answer some questions they have been asking about bodies, lightning, tornados, and ducks.  They are soaking it up and learn so much!  Then we had coloring book time, and made it to our last stop to feed the baby and adjust oxygen and change her diaper and give her medicine.  She is doing great so far, and we are grateful.  Now we are ready for our last leg of the trip today, and the trailer is there already waiting for us.  What blessings we have had this trip, despite opposition to keep us home!

Many thanks for your continued prayers!


About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper. This is not an official Web site of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
