It was one week ago today that Cooper started taking solid afternoon naps. I feel as though I’ve come through a dark fog of sleepless & fussy days and nights, and now I have my life (and arms) back. We’re still in the early stages of establishing a good rhythm, but I think we’ve survived… Read More Motherhood Confessions
Yay! I love the sound of those words! School keeps us so busy that, as you can see, our blog is sadly forsaken. Our schedules have changed now in that I will be starting as full-time church secretary at Grace Baptist this coming Monday. I’m a little sad about not teaching next fall, but I… Read More End of the School Year
Here are some pictures from our spring break trip, finally. It took a while for us to get around to picking out which ones we wanted, and a little bit longer for me to play with WordPress’ new gallery feature (so far, so good). The first ones are from Gettysburg, which we visited the first… Read More Spring Break pics
We are on spring break this week. Yesterday and today we attended our church’s Couple’s Retreat, with Dr. John Vaughn as our special speaker. Tomorrow afternoon we’re taking off for Gettysburg, PA. We’ll be spending a couple of days there before heading on to Elisabeth’s grandparents’ on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. From there we plan to… Read More Spring break!
Sorry I haven’t updated in a while. We’ve been incredibly busy with school starting back up. We will try to update on our lives soon.
Earlier this evening I went down to Fry’s Electronics (awesome, but really geeky mega-electronics store) in Fishers to spend a gift card my parents got me for my birthday. I ended up buying a pretty decent set of network cabling tools, which I’d been wanting, and also a few miscellaneous things we needed for the… Read More Boy do I feel dumb . . .
Tomorrow we’ll be taking off right after work to spend the weekend away for our first anniversary (!). We’re not telling where we’re going just yet, but we’ll have some pictures and description when we get back.
Wednesday was our last day of vacation. For breakfast we headed to visit with Elisabeth’s friends George and Rita, who we hadn’t been able to see earlier. Elisabeth with George and Rita. Fortunately, since our flight didn’t leave until 8:30 pm MDT we had quite a bit of the day to do some last minute… Read More Vacation: Day 8 (Travelling Home)
This was our day to do nothing, or….almost nothing. We slept in this morning after the exciting events of yesterday! We helped Tara by straightening up a little for her sister’s visit, and then left for the Wright’s house since the power had been restored. It was nice to relax and take it slower today.… Read More Vacation: Day 7 (Lazy Desert Day)
[Ed. note: these events took place on Monday, July 16th. We are now back in Indiana and working on finishing up posting about the last few days of our vacation.] Monday we decided to visit Zion National Park, just a short drive from where we are staying in St. George. Several friends had mentioned that… Read More Vacation: Day 6 (Zion National Park)
