All is Well

I just wanted to drop in to say that all is well. We had a bit of a scare last week and wound up spending the night at the hospital. Joni was having early labor signs, and it turned out to be a kidney stone that was causing the labor. She said it actually wasn't all that bad, and only experienced some initial pain. We we're both very relieved to hear that Hannah wasn't arriving that night...although it would have been amazing...we're not quite ready with preparations at home, etc.

My time at Winterfest in Arlington was a blast, and I really enjoyed getting to tell part of my story. Jeff Walling is one of my heroes, and my sister was star-struck just being around him. (You can tell what Church of Christ "Nerds" we are... :) ) I'm excited to be going to Gatlinburg in a few weeks to get to do the same talk...twice this time. There's more in the works as far as me speaking in various places, but I'll fill you in when I get more details.

It's Been a While...

So...I really don't see how people have time to blog everyday. I guess it is a discipline instead of a hobby, but I'm sure I'll be posting more in the next several weeks as things are about to get very exciting for us.

The big news I held back on last time was that Joni and I have opened our own travel agency. Our company is Off to Neverland Travel, and we are very excited about running our own company. Our focus (if you couldn't tell from the title) is Disney travel, but we can also book any other type of vacation, please let us know if we can help! Our website isn't quite complete yet, but we will have it up and running by the end of this month.

In other news, Hannah Jane is doing very well and according to our doctor, the baby is very active! (Joni can vouch for that, too.) We are going to the doctor every 2 weeks, now, and have birthing classes once a week for the next 5 weeks or so. The nursery has been painted, and after this past Saturday's wonderful baby shower, we have lots to put in there.

This weekend, I have the opportunity to speak alongside Jeff Walling at this year's Arlington, TX Winterfest, which is a very large gathering of youth in the Churches of Christ. I am so thrilled, and have been looking forward to this for some time. I speak Saturday night (as far as I know), and as I understand it, the format will be somewhat of an interview. I will also be traveling to the Gatlinburg, TN version of the same event in February.

All is going well...and life is blazing by...I'm sure it will only get busier, but we are ready for the ride!
