    You are in our prayers. We know you will be blessed!
    Rodger and I took Amtrak from Vancouver to San Francisco and then Los Angelos in May— it was a wonderful time, filled with much beauty, many delightful people, and a lovely rest and renewal for us.
    How amazing it will be to see the places you’ve listed in your journey!

    God’s blessings!

    Hello Heidi !!! and HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!
    I was up at 6 am today, and reading your blog. I check it every day, and sometimes more !
    On your Daddy’s birthday, we got up at 6 to phone, but now we are on the same time zone , so I don’t want to wake you. It feels that you are closer already, just being on the West Coast.
    I’m glad you did Junior Rangers, because they didn’t have the program at Porteau Cove this year.
    I’m happy to see your smiling face on each photo, and it looks like you’re having LOADS of fun.
    Talk to you soon ( as soon as Opa wakes up ! ). This will be a very different Birthday for you.

    Hey Goetzs,

    We’ve just started going over your photos. What fun you seem to be having. Our internet is going in and out so we have alot of time to look at each photo! We’re taking a break now and will resume tomorrow. The girls are heading off to the Foursquare summer camp tomorrow to return this Saturday. We’ll have to get together when you have recovered from your vacation! Safe travels, Sorensens
