Back online….

Wow.  I didn’t realize how much time had passed since I last posted here.  An update to WordPress a few months back caused the admin tools to no longer work and I just never took the time to modify the config file to allocate more memory to PHP to get it working again.

I finally sat down today and took the time to make the change and now it’s back online again.

I’ll try to get a few pictures or updates posted here in the near future, but that information (and much more) ends up on Facebook.  To put it here is just a repeat.


I realized I haven’t been posting much here.  Most of the updates end up on Facebook.

Charlotte is enjoying her Junior year of college.  Morgan and Mason miss her, but they Skype and phone often, which helps.  We also have several family weekends planned where we’ll all be together as well.  She enjoyed her summer and really got into some art projects, thanks to some influence from Pinterest.  She did a few crafts and paintings for Morgan’s room as well as some things for her own apartment.

Mason in enjoying school as well and is glad to have Cub Scouts start back up.  We’ve already got some camping trips planned which he’s looking forward.  And, like all the other Scouts, he’s excited about all the other activities:  BB guns, archery, fishing, camp fires, s’mores, etc.

Morgan is doing fine as well.  She turned four last month and is doing normal 4-year-old stuff.  She’s become great friends with the little girl next door and usually is running over there directly after school to play.

We all had a great summer with some great trips and lots of time together as a family.  I couldn’t ask for more.

Take care,


Mother’s Day weekend

We did our best to spoil Kathy this weekend.

Among other things, she was served up a quiet breakfast in bed with her favorite coffee, fruit, and:

Of course, the Egg Nest was nothing new.  However, the Orange Blossom French Toast and especially the Blueberry and Lemon Ice were both new recipes.

2013 ZTA Daddy/Daughter Day

Charlotte and I had another great Daddy/Daughter Day with Zeta Tau Alpha.

Barbeque, bowling, and four great hours of uninterrupted Daddy/Daughter time.
