The life and times of the Godfrey ten.

A sno-go Sunday

It has been difficult to blog since we have come home from Costa Rica. It just does not seem as exciting or interesting, and the material has somehow lost its luster. But we will persevere and fight through and together we can get back in the groove. So if there is something you want to know about, let me know and I will offer up a blog on it.

First an update on Jo. Recently I realized that I had not updated all of you as to the status, that is because the status is quo. We pick up Jo on Friday at 5 pm and then drop her off Sunday at 5 pm. This has been going on since before we left for vacation and will continue until????? We have still seen signs that cause us concern, so please continue to pray. 

Her last weekend here we took the opportunity to go out on our snowmachine, a machine given to us by some extremely giving people. I took most of the kids out and let them drive me around, and they had a blast. You may recall, about 4 years ago Dorian had a little “incident” on a snowmachine a few years back and we haven’t gone out much since. 

 

Now hold on tight!!!

Ben tended to get a little throttle happy, and at one point I thought he was determined to jump the Sterling Highway, and not on purpose. His second time out he seemed to have the hang of it.

Olivia was a natural. She has the touch and went just the right speed for dad’s taste.

Kassie too seemed to have a great touch and as usual her smile never left her face, which in turn made me smile.

Jake and Jo loved it. Though a little apprehensive at first, they soon warmed up to the adventure and the next thing I knew they had their hands on the throttle and apparently thought that I should go a little faster. 

 

If we are not back in 5 minutes, send out the Troopers.

I thought we were going on a hay ride.

 

The next thing I knew, 2 hours had flown by and it was time to get ready for Sunday night church. Now if I could only get mom to come out for a ride, then I would have accomplished something. She has this “thing” about outside activities in the winter. My true Alaskan woman.

  1. Thanks for blogging! I have been checking periodically and had noticed the decline in postings but had concluded exactly what you shared… it’s rough enough coming home after an awesome vacation, let alone coming home to the pressures and brokenness that surround your lives in this season. Praying for you … still believing for a miracle.

    • Thanks for reading the blogging and being an all star the all star commenter. Maybe we should set up a star system like ebay, the more comments the better color your star. More to come.
