For those of you who had been keeping track, my brother Jon (in the Marines) has been deployed again. This time he’s headed for Iraq—Camp Fallujah, to be exact, according to the rumors he’d heard. This time he’s expected to away for up to 8 months. Please keep him in your prayers as he will… Read More Jon deployed to Iraq
Today was a snow day for us, with 6-10 inches of snow so far and the wind still whipping up the snow something fierce. I don’t think I’ve seen drifts this big since I’ve lived in Indiana. Not sure whether we’ll be back again tomorrow or not, but everyone here has definitely enjoyed the day… Read More Snow day!
Christmas break has been great so far. We’ve been able to get plenty of the rest we needed, but have also been able to get a lot done. Christmas shopping was time-consuming, but nevertheless went really well. We got some really good presents (I think) without spending a ton of money, and I’m looking forward… Read More Christmas Break
Things have been going pretty well lately, but I’m definitely ready for Christmas break to start. We’ve both been pretty weary these last couple of weeks, and are about ready for a recharge. Tuesday is the beginning of Christmas break, with regular classes on Monday and then high school caroling and bowling all day Tuesday.… Read More Pre-Christmas Update

We arrived back in Anderson late Sunday night. It’s about a 7-hour drive from here, but we didn’t get on the road until after lunch. Overall we had a really good time with the family in W.Va.

Some of my readers may see themselves show up in some of the shots. 🙂 I apologize that it took so long. Since we don’t have internet… Read More Wedding pictures posted
Well, as I was finishing up my thesis back in July I looked ahead at the upcoming changes in my life and thought, “Wow. I’m going to be ridiculously busy all the way up until October.” As it turns out, it’s now October and I’m still as busy as ever, but things are starting to… Read More I’m back (finally)
Since I haven’t posted in the last week I figure it’s about time to post a quick update on what’s been happening with my life. I don’t have internet access at my new place yet, so I’ve mostly had to go to my parents’ to get online. Needless to say, I’ve been feeling a little… Read More It’s been a while
