  • 2023, full of adventures

    This year brought about tons of adventure for our family. We took trips to Wolf Run State Park (to camp), South Myrtle Beach, Oshkosh, Lake James, France, Belgium, and the Netherlands. And nearly all with a 1–2-year-old. Whew! We had a ton of pictures and memories that were made on these trips that we will […]

  • 2022, a year in review

    As I sit here on the couch, I am reflecting on the wondrous joy it is to be a father. Watching Alan running around the house exploring brings joy to my heart. There is not anything special about what he is doing, but the mere experience of watching him learn makes me happy. We have […]

  • 2021, my son is born!

    This year has been one of the most joyful and life-changing of my entire life. My son was born this year in October. Val and I spent so long reading books, preparing the house, and going on adventures until the day of delivery. This post describes some of these adventures and how I have felt […]

  • 2018 is almost over!

    Another year is almost under our belts. This year brought forth adventures, trials, and joys. We went to Oshkosh in the Tri-Pacer and had plenty of maple-bacon ice cream. This is one tradition that I hope will not fade away. That ice cream is delicious. It’s been fun to get to fly as much as […]

  • Good timing

    Here is my once yearly blog post, coming to you for another year. This has been going on for the last 7 years without fail. This is the last day of 2014, so I’m glad that I didn’t miss it. It’s been a busy year, like all of the past years have been. Life never […]

  • Life over the past year

    I’ve been out of school now for one year, and it has been an incredible year so far. I feel like I’ve been everywhere, done everything, and am still just as busy as I was during school. There are always good and bad times, but I am so blessed to be happy and view life […]

  • Hello there

    I suppose that it is time for my once yearly blog post. A lot has happened over the past year, far too much to explain. I am still alive, and I have made it through college. I am now an alumnus of The Ohio State University. Since last time, Soulfire Software has released onto Xbox […]

  • Ahh the good life.

    My blog has now turned into a once yearly blog.  As it so happens, I seem to post something about 1-2 a year.  The reason?  I would attribute this to being “busy.”  What does “busy” mean?  Well, I’d say, but I don’t have time.  I’ll give it a go in one sentence.  Mainly stuff related […]

  • Life.Alive!

    Yes it is true; I am alive!  I cannot possibly sum up all of the things that I’ve been going through since the last post because that would be a waste of time.  A short synopsis in one word: busy.  I am now taking classes at The Ohio State University and have been in a […]

  • Life.Hmm

    Hmm. I haven’t updated my blog in a while for a few reasons. I’ve been working, sleeping, and breathing. Not much else. I suppose I just had to take a break from blogging for the winter. Happy 2008 everyone! It’s official, I have been accepted the The Ohio State University at Marion. I hope it […]
