Good Times

August 29, 2008 by Victoria Strong
We have really enjoyed our little Northern California family vacation between doctor's visits and, although we weren't sure if we were ready for all of this, it was really good for us to get out of our routine a bit. It has been tiring, but wonderful to be just the three of us -- a family. We...

Back in Stanford

August 28, 2008 by Bill Strong

This is what the Golden Gate Bridge looks like through the front
window of a 36 foot RV when the driver misses the 580 turnoff to

Emotional Day

August 22, 2008 by Victoria Strong
Today was a difficult day. Nothing dramatic happened, thankfully. The aquarium was fine -- fun. It was just an emotionally difficult day for me. I couldn't sleep last night -- I couldn't stop thinking... And today my mind continued to race. Under that pretext, going to a family destination was...
