Wow.  I started this blog in June of 2009.  My last blog post was in June of 2010.  This raises a lot of thoughts.  The first is an incredible amount of thanks to Jen for keeping our family adventures chronicled (is that a word?).  Second is a significant kick in the rear for me.  This all started as a way to share the adventures of our family’s life and a long the way occasionally I think I have gotten distracted by things that are not nearly as important as these daily experiences.  Inspired by a friend I have never personally met but who chose to make his own path ( Jim Jaillet – ), I am challenging myself to update this blog at least once a week if not daily.
