Summer has Come and is Almost Gone! 8/17/2014

Back in June, we remember saying that it would not be so long until the next time we posted an update.  But, here we are again delinquent in our writing and finding ourselves having a hard time trying to remember what happened last week, let alone 2 months ago.  The summer has come and flown […]


State Cup Soccer Weekend! 1/27/2014

What an exciting weekend of soccer at State Cup!  After a disappointing 1-0 loss on Saturday against the TVSA Hawks, we weren’t sure how the boys would bounce back.  The important thing was that we played some good soccer even though we couldn’t get the goals to go and had 1 bad break that we […]

Carlsbad, the Eagle has Landed! 5/25/2013

Travis and Lynne are Home!!!  No matter what Mother Nature threw at us, whether it was the torrential rain storm we passed through in Texas, or the triple digit heat of the deserts or the high winds in the California desert/mountains, there was nothing that would keep us from getting home.  We were on a […]

Treatment is Done and We are on the Run! 5/24/2013

We had Travis’ last treatment today.  Yeah!!!  Who would have thought 7 weeks after arriving in Houston, we would be on the road home.  When we look back to that first week of appointments and then the difficulties after starting the first week of treatments, it seems like a whole different world.  Despite all that […]

Moving Day – Homewood Suites! 4/13/2013

As much as we liked staying up on Lake Conroe, it was time to move down to Houston so we can take care of business and get this treatment started.  So we packed up the van and checked out.  Before we left the lake, we had to get that fishing session in that the boys […]

Time to Relax! 4/7/2013

After 20+ hours of driving over these last 2 days, it was nice to have a relaxing day checking out the area around Lake Conroe.  There are lots of boats, fishing, ducks and cool things to see.  We decided to spend most of the day outside of the car.  Imagine that! We celebrated the 1 […]

Houston, we have Travis! 4/6/2013

After staying the night in El Paso, TX, we made it to Houston (actually Lake Conroe to the north) after another 10.5+ hours of driving.  Whew!  We are staying in a 2 bedroom condo right on the lake for our first week here before moving to a hotel in Houston for Travis’ treatment.  We have […]

El Paso, TX…half way there! 4/5/2013

Carlsbad in our rear view mirror is kind of bitter sweet but we know this is the right decision to help Travis beat this thing.  We are so thankful to have our friend Maggie as such a great house and dog sitter.  We know Cisco is in great hands and thanks for taking care of […]

Ready or Not? 4/4/2013

Wow!  Where did the time go?  The last couple of days have been busy trying to get ready for Lynne and Travis to be in Houston for 7 weeks.  Lynne has Tyler and I all stocked up while she will be gone.  Maybe she thinks we don’t know where the stores are.  We did manage […]
