I am an Auntie!

Melinda had her baby yesterday! A little boy, 9 lbs 2 oz, and we haven’t seen him yet, but we hear he looks like his daddy, Benj. I bet Melinda is glad that pregnancy is over! Now the real hard part begins.

Spanglish and Ears

Two unrelated bits of news. First of all, I forgot to mention one other thing we did on Isaac’s birthday (it was getting late at night when I typed that up). We took Reece in to see the doctor because he’s been pretty fussy (for Reece this is ...

Summer's Last Hurrah

Ahh the last days of summer before school. We played hard this Labor Day weekend. Friday I took the day off and we went back to Andrew’s cabin (my co-worker). The water in the reservoir was a bit colder this time, but we still had a great time. We ...

Goooooooooal!

Today was the last game of Isaac’s summer soccer season. He’s made some great improvements over the past few months since the beginning of his soccer career. It’s been really fun to watch. Tonight he capped the season by scoring his first goal, completely unassisted, right at ...
