Free!


Notice anything different? No more tubes! We recieved a call from the doctor on friday after my last day of work at Keystone. I will definately miss working on the mountain and the people that I worked with but I don't think I will miss doing payroll.



This was a great message.



Here is a shot from our porch. It snowed yesterday.



This is really exciting. Here is a website that my friend Erin created for the builder in Breckenridge that I have been taking photographs for.

Sigh of Relief

Last Wednesday as I was packing up our little apartment for our move, the phone rang. It was our doctor. She was calling in regard to some blood tests that had been conducted at the hospital when William was born. She said that one of the screenings came back positive for a condition that I still can't spell. I asked as many questions as I could and I know that it must have sounded awful to Katie who was nursing Will in the other room. She began to cry. All she must have heard was "is it treatable?... Really?... oh.. So he would have to be on steroids for the rest of his life?” The conversation left me completely untied, insecure and in the dark. The thought of starting my 1-week-old son on steroids was disheartening to say the least. Katie and I sat on this news for the past couple days while we moved from our apartment back into the Flygs where we will spend the winter.

It wasn't until tonight at dinner that the phone rang once more. Our doctor had spoken to the endocrinologist at the children's hospital in Denver. She was not concerned and said that no additional screening needed to be done. We could call her in the morning to ask her any questions but after talking with her we could forget about all of this, stop worrying and get busy loving our little boy.


"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
because the LORD has anointed me
to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,

to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor
and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,

and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, 

and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor."

Isaiah 61:1-3

Mom holding Will

One of my favorite memories was when I had the chance to tell my parents last February that Katie and I were expecting. Today topped that. Bringing William down the stairs and handing him to my mom was pretty awesome.
