This is the amazing story of our micro preemie, John Craig. He was born on November 30, 2005 at 24 weeks and 5 days gestation. He weighed 1 pound 8 ounces and was 12 inches long. John is a true miracle and an inspiration to all that meet him!
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29.11

Wild Hair

So what do you do when your big brother (MY brother) gets a wild hair and wants to take the kids to the beach for the day?  You start packing up the car of course!!!  And then you set  your alarm for 4:00am, throw on your suit and quietly transfer the kids from their bed to the car and drive to the beach for the day!

We reached San Diego at 11:30 and had our toes in the sand by noon.  The kids had a blast.  We couldn't keep John out of the ocean and the girls were as happy as could be playing in the sand.  We packed up a little before 5:00pm, rinsed the kids off at the shower on the beach, grabbed some delicious pizza at Luigi's, then ice cream for dessert and hopped back in the car and drove home.  Hope was asleep in about five minutes and Paige about seven.

All five of us had the best day ever and I loved spending some time with my brother laughing until our stomachs hurt.
