-ILLINOIS...we have arrived. the girls and i got into chicago yesterday evening and its been crazy ever since. my uncles funeral was this afternoon and it was a lot harder than i had imagined. just being around the family and friends...and knowing what kind of heartache everyone is going through was hard. today was sad enough, so i can only imagine what kind of basket case i am going to be on monday during my grandpa's funeral. i guess i'm just not ready for "good-bye". i know God has a plan for everyone but its just been hard to accept. i think its only natural. i have never handled change very well and this is no exception.

the twins are doing great in illinois. their schedules haven't been thrown out of wack and they are still sleeping through the night...YAY! the plane ride was rough...but that's to be expected. the girls weren't bad, but just taking care of two babies for 4 hours in such a small space can be difficult. they are taking to everyone very well and are doing great with meeting all the new people that have been around. i couldn't be more proud of them.

johnny is still doing great. he is having a blast out to sea and really enjoying himself. today is day 16 and we only have 13 to go. i am glad that i am home because i know that it will make the time go by last. i just wish it was under better circumstances. i thought that the hardest thing this month would be living without johnny...boy was i wrong. that sounds like child's play when it comes to what i am going through right now. i guess i just need to trust that God has a plan for all of us and this is what He wanted all along. i just have to be true to Him and i know that he will lead me in the right direction and help me through this horrible time.

my grandpa's funeral will take place on Monday, August 18th.

*friends of the family are more than welcome to come and help us celebrate the life of a wonderful man.

After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.
I Thessalonians 4:17
