Late Summer, 2006

In the last few months, a great deal has happened. The first thing I should mention is, Kari and I are expecting our own child now. Yup, number three is on his/her way. And what do we want? Well, whatever comes will be fine by me. We already have one of each, after all. Kari […]

Early Summer, 2006

The oldest three of my sisters are pregnant, and Kari is itching to get that way herself. How easily they forget that they hate it as they go through the pregnancy. But I can’t convince her otherwise. Ah, well. We may be trying soon. We are saddened that one of my sisters is having some […]

Recent events, Spring of 2006

Just before going to California for my spring break, my baby sister, Karyn, came to visit for her spring break. She came with the Amandas (yes, there are two of them). Karyn actually spent more time with us than with her friends this year, and it was great to have her here. She didn’t go […]

Disneyland and California

I came back from a surprisingly relaxing spring break. I thought it would be stressful, especially keeping an eye on the kids at Disneyland. But truthfully, it wasn’t so bad. The drive down to California was pleasant. Before we left, Kari and I found a nice replacement car DVD player (our old one finally died), […]

Spring Break and Such

As Spring Break approaches, I’m amazed that nearly half the semester is over.  How did it go so fast?  Of course, a real part of me wants it over already, but that’s because I’m feeling a little burned out on school.  I have two classes that demand too much work and two that don’t demand […]

My children are growing up very fast. Elijah is approaching four years old, and soon, we will be doing away with naps and pacifiers. That will be a hard change, I’m sure. He’s going to preschool three times a week, which seems to be going well. He was hitting for a while, and getting sent […]

New Car, Again

Kari and I were a two car family for the first time, early last year. We purchased our Toyota Sienna and have been very happy with it (see the story here). Sure, the gas mileage wasn’t as good as the Honda Accord, but it was a bigger car, so it was OK. Insurance was higher, […]

New Blog

Well, this is the start of my personal blog. I will likely just post personal stuff, for the few people who care. It’ll be fun, I suppose. Well, I am half-way through my master’s degree and have only 3 more semesters to go. Then I’ll do something like actual counseling, and hopefully professionally write, as […]
