October 12, 1978

That was the day I was born on. I will be 29 years old. I have learned alot in my life and will continue to learn alot. I have made alot of mistakes but God has forgiven me. So, this 29th birthday I’m going to enjoy Steak and Shake Cheese Fries and a Shake! YUM YUM! Here’s to another year!


Micheal E. Johnson

Josh’s brother mike passed away on Friday October 5. He was only 30. He died of a brain tumor and passed away in his sleep. He was very humble and soft hearted. He would do anything for anyone. He was loud but loved a great debate on a many things espically politics.

ER and Doctors

Lily had to make sure there was a hospital close by as within the first few weeks she had a soar throat that we just had to go to the hospital for as we did not have a doctor yet but she did have a very high fever and some how when we said hospital and got there she was feeling better! :0 Timmy also was seen but that was because he was wheezy. I sure do miss the Grinnell ER! Very quick compared to our two to three hour waits in the ER. Timmy had a chest x-ray very tramatic they put him in a tub with his arms above his head. I could not watch. So now we have an AWESOME pediatrican name Dr. Emery who officially diagnosed my children as STRONG WILLED…..hmmmmm don’t know where that comes from at all! :0 But she was amazing….Timmy really enjoyed her. He did not scream at her but instead played peak a boo with her. It was cute.


Well, we are finally moved in and getting used to life in Fowler, IN. We had lots of help from amazing friends and family! Thanks to EVERYONE who helped. A friend of ours Francine did amazing things with my children on the Saturday of our move in the evening so Sandy and I could get all the last minute stuff done in the evening. They were having so much fun they did not cry! Then my dad and step-mom allowed us to stay in a hotel room for two nights which was way better than the floor. The driving part of the move was a test of my patients driving the whole way with all three kids. Needless to say I had NO patients left. When we got to Fowler we had people from the church who took time off of work to help us. How WONDERFUL that was! Then I unpacked the kitchen totally the Tuesday after we moved because I was sooooooo tired of fast food! So, we have all the major stuff put away now it’s just figuring out where to the rest of it goes! Hopefully we will be unpacked by Christmas!
