Movin' on up

It may not quite be a deluxe apartment in the sky, but it is on the east side (or to the east of Tulsa). Today we moved out of Hospitality House (which was a lovely place, and would have been perfect if we'd had one or two less kids with us) over to TownePlace Suites in Broken Arrow. Right now we're in a double suite (two queen beds plus a full kitchen - fridge, stove, oven, microwave), and by Sunday we will be in an even bigger suite (two separate bedrooms with a queen bed each, plus a double sofabed in the living room), which means that the big girls will be joining us very soon! We are so excited to see them!

Even without the excitement of our cross-town move and the anticipation of the girls joining us, today was a pretty good day. Again, we got to see more of the Kol we know (even if it was grumpy, tired Kol), and again he hasn't been in as much pain as before. He's gotten a little more accepting of the juice (or at least more resigned to his fate!), and there have been some wonderful moments where I catch him watching me, and he catches me catching him, and a slightly shy but comfortable smile crosses his face. It almost brings tears to my eyes, it feels so good to see him smile.


  1. It is so good to hear of these progressions! We continue to pray and are so happy to hear youre moving on up! We keep praying knowing that God hear us!

  2. Glad you are doing better and that the big girls are joining you soon. We keep you in our prayers!

  3. Thank you so much for this blog, Kirk and Kris. It is such a help to us here to have some idea of your daily journey. Broken Arrow -- a cousin of mine (another LCBI'er from way back) lived with her husband and family in Broken Arrow many years ago; she is now in Florida. And yesterday, it is was interesting to read of your intro to Kevin Wagner and his family. I recall his name as he spoke to a women's retreat in Prince Albert some years ago before we started doing the retreats at Kinasao. Connections!
