Beautiful Life

Hey child up and go; A big world is out there waiting for us to live in every day. Outside you will find, there is love all around you; Takes you, makes you wanna' say; That it's a beautiful life and it's a beautiful world and it's a beautiful time to be here, to be here, to be here. -Fisher

We got word today that Claire is scheduled for surgery on Friday around noon! So, Paul and I will head back to St. Louis with Claire tomorrow. The other children will stay here in Omaha, Nebraska with Paul's sister because we didn't have the heart to cut the visit that short. The kids are really enjoying their time with Aunt Lisa and they haven't even gotten to see their cousins yet. The camping cousins are due back Friday and we will drive back on Friday after the surgery and go ahead and spend the weekend as planned.

Lisa took us to the Omaha Zoo today. This zoo was a bit different than the St. Louis zoo. Along with the regular zoo exhibits, it had two very nice, large indoor exhibits that we really enjoyed. One was the Lied Jungle (rain forest) and the other was a desert exhibit. When you were in these exhibits you felt like you were really there in that habitat. They were very well done!

In the Desert with Aunt Lisa! Claire is starting to warm up to this new person in her life.
