Looking Up

Sometimes I am struck by the sky.  Moments of contrasting clouds and blue framed by the trees.  Pictures don’t always do these moments justice.  Sometimes they do, sometimes they don’t.  When I experience them I am in awe of God’s creation.

Fit(bit)ness Friday

I wanted to do a new series starting today.  I’m calling it Fit(bit)ness Fridays.  I wrote about my Fitbit ChargeHR and the issues I had with the strap in a previous post.  I was happy with everything except that issue.  Well that issue was resolved when I purchased (with birthday money) the Charge2 a couple […]

TBT: Moving Day

After about four months of sleeping in the same room as my wife and I we moved our daughter into a downstairs room that we could get to quickly if need be.  The plan was always to move her out of that room into her real room which is upstairs.  We had talked to her […]
