I’m not in school at the moment, and I couldn’t be happier about taking the summer off to recharge since this fall is gonna be busy with school, work and a new baby in the home.

With that being said, life hasn’t seemed to slow down. Cindy is now 22 weeks along with our little girl, Carter is almost 2 with every wonderful and terrible thing that comes along with that and, lucky me, I had major surgery on my ear about a month ago and the recovery time has been painfully slow (I should get complete hearing back in a few more weeks, they say). Combine all that together, and for some reason, the hours seem to slip away.

I have been able to steal a moment to change the blog layout to something more… summery (summeresque? summerish?). I’ve started on getting our family website set up, too. (

You may notice that the blog address is different now. If you follow us at all, feel free update bookmarks, RSS feeds, what have you, to In the next month or so, I’ll have more content up to the website so you can have one more option in your internet browsing day.

As summer routines get put into place, I’ll have more time to blog, and more time to bug Cindy to blog, which I’m excited about- it’s fun to reread old posts and relive a moment or two from the past.

In the meantime, as Sam, Lori, and Addie (my brother and family), just relocated from Provo to Redmond, WA, here’s a picture I took a few days before they left at the park of the two cousins.

I'm seriously impressed with Carter's listening and patience. He may have me beat.

Carter looks more like you every day, Chris!

Yay for more blog posts! I love the pic of Addie and Carter. She looks quite pensive. I'm assuming the pic of them giving cousin kisses wasn't quite blog-appropriate.

Chris, I am glad to hear you are taking the summer off. I hope you have a wonderful time, and get to relax a little. Glad your ear surgery went well and that you are almost done recovering. Hope your hearing returns to normal very quickly. Love the photos, and all your blogs! Thanks for sharing.

You forgot a "w" in your link to your family website, and you forgot to actually have something to look at on your website.

Nice photo though!
