New Arrival!

We’ve got a new arrival! Daniel was born today at 11:24 AM. He’s 7 pounds and 9.5 ounces, and 19.75″ long. Michele and Daniel are both doing fine right now.



catching up…

Hmmm, where to start?

It’s been a while since the last update, but there’s been a very good reason for that! But we’re going to go in order, so I’ll get to that in a minute.

Rob earned his Wolf badge this past April, so he’s all set to be a Bear Cub this coming year.


And Katie is being a budding artist with the art critic Zoe looking on.


Rob went through his First Communion this year! He didn’t much care for the wine, though.  (That second pic isn’t “real” – I had to composite it from two different ones!)


And I ran in the Cotton Row Run 5K race on Memorial Day! About killed myself, too. 🙂 Wasn’t that bad, but I did have to rush over to play with the Huntsville Concert Band in a local cemetery for a Memorial Day ceremony.


But now to the real reason for the lack of updates – we finally bought a house! It’s not that big, but it’s just right for us. We closed at the end of June, and took nearly the entire month of July to move everything over. (Thanks to our dads and my mom for helping with that!) I’ll have to take some more pictures once we get rid of all the boxes.


Oh, and by the way, there’s the other little thing – Michele’s due to have another baby this month!
