This particular post is a window into the life of a very ordinary person, doing an ordinary job, surrounded by extraordinary people serving an infinitely extraordinary God.
We are so thankful that all four of the kids are growing and thriving! Each day is SO full around here, with noise, food, dirt and baby kisses! Asa is just about done with his first soccer season. He loved playing so much and we look forward to doing it again next year. We’re thankful […]
Here’s what it looks like outside: I didn’t know when this day dawned, but it’s a good day for coding. I’ve been a little off the past several days (quiet, Bruce), so today has been good for me. My time spent searching for and finding a bug, then restructuring a lot of code to get […]

We really love the area and are so excited to hopefully be homeowners soon. […]
