Forge, Football, Family & Ike

The big news of the week has been the arrival of the Forge class of 2009!  This year we have 10 guys and 6 girls in the program.  They moved in last weekend and are off to a great start.  Darcie and I love getting to know the new students each year and look forward to getting to know them in the coming weeks and months. 

The first weekend in the month of September also means the beginning of football season - which also marks the beginning of the fantasy football season as well!  :)  I made sure to introduce Heidi to the insanity so that she'll be able to talk sports with her daddy when she grows up.  Incidentally, my fantasy football team did horribly this past week - no thanks to the game that Heidi and I were watching here.  Thanks a lot Steven Jackson.  

The weather around here has been nice the past few days, so we decided to take the whole family for a walk.  We ventured out up our little county road and as we were walking with the sun behind us, I thought it made for a cool picture of our family:  Darcie, Me, Heidi and Cinco.  Awww.  

And, finally, our weekend wouldn't be complete without the impending doom of yet another hurricane.  Gustav was a total no show for us - threatening with 15" of rain and we barely got a sprinkle.  Ike seems to be much more unavoidable for the Tyler area, so we'll see how it goes.  We're supposed to get the worst of it Saturday afternoon.

That's all for now!
