I’ve always known that having kids was something that I would do, but I’ve never really looked forward to it. I’ve always been keenly aware of the amount of work that children require.

more pics from Hoopfest! The first game- Julia, Dad, and Scott playing on the streets of downtown Spokane. This is what I saw looking skyward and groundward as I stood in the fountain with Kaitlyn. and finally, Kaitlyn hiding behind Grandma when the fountain spray got too serious.

I have the occassion every few days to drive by Baskin Robbins. I get nervous as it approaches on the right side of my car, and I do my best to distract myself from it’s presence. I listen to the song on the radio, I think about the tasks that need to be completed today, […]

Here’s a bunch of randomness- I ran about three miles today- pain free (but not sweat free!) it seems that my self-imposed physical therapy is working. =) I missed three calls from someone….Mr. no number.
