Well it's that time of year again! We are so excited to be walking with March of Dimes this year AGAIN! and I am hoping that we can come together this year (even if you didn't make it last year!) and celebrate another year of Kyle's miracle life! OH... and raise money for March of Dimes too! It is hard to believe and sometimes overwhelming that kyle was that tiny one pound baby with a 1% chance to live. and today... so full of life and joy. Last year's walk was amazing. It is hard to put into words what it felt like to walk beside so many of you in honor of what the Lord has done for our family! - it was overwhelming. and to know how many more of you sponsored and donated in honor of Kyle. He is amazing and each day our family is grateful to all of you. Joyfully grateful is how I feel. Again this year we are joining the March of Dimes - March for Babies Walk on Sunday May 1st.
Please join Kyle's team. walk with us; donate as we walk; walk with us & have others sponsor you as you walk - You can do all three or any combination! To be involved click HERE to get to my personal March of Dimes page where you can:
1. click on DONATE NOW which is sponsoring me as I walk! - don't forget to leave a message on my page when you do!
2. WALK WITH ME which is joining Team Kyle and walking with us on May 1st! If you choose this option March of Dimes will have you set up your own fund raising paige. You will be linked to TEAM KYLE and will be able to get others to sponsor you as you walk. Don't be intimidated by this - it is all for a great cause and raising even $10 is a huge step toward the future of children born too early!
OR... You can click this TEAM KYLE link to visit the Team Kyle page - you can donate or sign up from here too. You can also view the Team Kyle roster and our total donations! I will be in contact with everyone on TEAM KYLE to let you know details soon!
THE WALK is 5 miles - however if you want to be a part of TEAM KYLE and don't feel like you can make the 5 miles - don't worry you can come and see us off and welcome us back and hang out under the family teams tent! You can also walk as far as you can and stop at a check point and one of the volunteers will give you a ride back to the finish area! also - wheel chairs are welcome!
There will be lots going this day - food, fun for the kids - it is really a whole day family event! So come and have fun!

I heard last night about someone hearing God say.. " you know you don't help me right?"
The way my 2 year old unloading the dishes doesn't really "help me!" but what qualifies me to follow him is that I want to help.
Been reading Peter's story... And heard the ending last night. I know... Preachers wife and I don't know peters story... ( funny how easy it is to seem like you know a lot in today's Christianity..) anyway the part where christ returns... And Peter thinking he is out of chances realizes it is him and doesn't try again to walk on water but jumps in and swims to him!
Oh my heart!!!! It's not about the chance but about his great mercy and how much I can see he loved Peter.
That is my heart lord.

So far one down and we are on out way to part 2.
This was the boys first time at the beach... And they were so pumped! On the other hand... After seeing Mexico and Florida... It is just hard to enjoy the dirty water and dead fish at your feet. The first time in the water Jadon was concerned about the "oil" getting on him... Jack woke up the second morning and wanted to know if we were going back to the muddy water..... Kyle was fascinated by stairs at the beach house.
We played put put, found shells, went swimming each day, ate junk food, played games and of course had our fill of the wii. Great couple of days.
San Antonio here we come!

- John and Kelly
- This story begins with 5 people. John, Kelly, Jadon, Jack, and Kyle (he is only 23 weeks old... and he is still safely tucked away in his mommy's belly) In an hour's time Kyle made his way into the world. 1 pound, 3 ounces- 11 and a half inches long. This family will never be the same. This child is a warrior. He has the spirit of a Lion, and more courage than a whole pride. He is fierce, and fearless- and he is teaching us to fear the Lord- and to believe that God is in our midst and healing even now. Join us as pray, as we praise, and as we journey through this life as lovers of God and all His glory.
