Changes, for some

July and August certainly see some changes for our children. Jeremy and Alexandria move to Phoenix next week to start school at Midwestern School of Osteopathic Medicine. They have bought a nice home in Glendale near the school, (with a pool) which will give Bridgit a place to play and an unlimited source of water.
Samuel and Michelle soon after move to Happy Valley, State College, PA. As part of his masters in acoustical engineering he has to get security clearance from the Navy as his research will be partially funded by them. So if you get a call; say nice things.
Jeremy and Samuel have listed their heart and soul on Internet ad sites as they sell "the buggy". They began welding and building/rebuilding buggys when they were 15. Now, as they part ways, they couldn't 'part' the buggy; hence, it must be sold. A ride in it is truly an exhilarating and terrifying experience.
Rebecca is currently studying graphic design as a tool to help in her advertising and marketing career. They love Denver, but we miss them. Jason starts school there in September.
Caitlin leaves the nest empty in August (as a tear rolls down) We will dearly miss her. she works everyday to prepare for the pursuit of her passion, music. She is composing and recording songs.
Our friends the Hinsons left two weeks ago as he begins his command at the Pentagon (He is a U-2 Pilot.) Our friends the Hargadons leave in 4 hours to move to Utah. He designed this blog three years ago today. We will miss them both. They were there for us in tough times.
Barbie will be halfway done with school in August. She is dedicated, determined and drained.
Me, well not much is changing and that is fine with me. I love my job, I love my calling at church and I love my wife. I hope none of this changes for a long time. Some say change is the only constant; some say change is good. Others are terrified of change. I say change is only a minor event in the infinite universe controlled by balance. Balance is the key to everything. More on that later.

We miss you guys! Janna and Caroline are still in Idaho, I've been traveling but basically alone for a week with another to go. A fascinating shift--I don't know anyone here, and end up only saying a few words to clerks at stores, etc. on any given day. :) Will you be dropping Caitlin off?

Kevin, could you please give us any information on Ed's new oncologist:
Edward Huynh is coming from San Diego Kaiser to replace Dr. Azar.

On a thrilling note: Kaiser just called to say Ed's Lambda is 23 - NORMAL RANGE!!!! And he's been off Revlimid for 4 months.
Miracles Abound!
Love, Aunt Renie

We miss you Kevin and Barbie! You are dear friends to us and we will forever be friends no matter the distance! Change is always hard, sometime harder than others, and reading your post lifted my spirits about the whole change thing. Hope to see you guys soon! Tell Caitlin good luck, she is going to do great!
