River Park

Not everyone has a spiffy yellow wheelchair just their size.


He only needs it when we walk more than three miles, and that’s just so he still has energy to play hard and do fun things, and still be able to make it back to the car.

Some of us didn’t finish our work this morning, so had to bring it along.

The kids waved at all the trucks as we crossed the river, so they all honked at them!


It was a gorgeous day, even if not sunny, and we loved being outside!

We saw nests and geese and birds and talked about different kinds of trees.


They had such fun!

I even showed them where I lived when I got baptized!

Kirk was so excited to have paced himself that he ran the last mile and beat everyone to the car!


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.
