Icy/Gaither Concert

Greetings. Here's what we did this week. We just got back from Iowa. We made an unplanned visit to see our nephew, Caleb, who was in the hospital. At Stephanie's mom's house over Christmas he was sick most of the time. When they got home they took him to the doctor and then sent him to the hospital. It turns out he had pneumonia. But that's not why he was kept in the hospital. There was something wrong with his kidneys. They weren't really sure what it was so that's why he was kept there. It was pretty much complications from pneumonia on his kidneys. There's some word for it but I don't know what it is. So Stephanie, her mom and me went down to Iowa on Thursday after Stephanie got off work. Thankfully, Caleb got to leave the hospital on Friday and is doing much better. We came back Saturday. It was not fun coming back. The roads were very icy. We went about 40 mph the whole way home. Around the Jewel exit in Iowa I saw a vehicle going southbound and it looked like it was turning cause it was facing sideways. Then I realized it was sliding on the ice. And all of a sudden it flipped and ended up in the ditch with it's tires in the air. We saw a lot of vehicles flipped over in the ditch, but for some reason they were all on the southbound side. Weird. The northbound side was bad too. So that was a great adventure. 

Let me throw a plug in for the Gaither Homecoming concert coming up on May 29th at 7pm at the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines. Tickets go on sale to the public on Monday, January 19th at 10 am! Here's a list SO FAR of who's going to be there:
