Labor Dabor

Well, here's to another Labor Dabor. It's been a nice, enjoyable calm weekend before the storm - quite literally in more than just one way. The remnants of Gustav are fast approaching the Tyler area and our weather forcasters are freaking out about 6-15" of rain that could fall in the next few days. I'm skeptical, but we'll see. The other storm fast approaching is my next class of Forge students. They will be here on Saturday. All 16 of them! Hard to believe this will be our fourth class of students and we already have 40 alumni. We're excited though - it will be a great year.

This weekend was also my dad's birthday weekend. So, instead of them coming out to see us, we decided to give Heidi her first try at a road trip. She did pretty good! We made it out to Plano and enjoyed celebrating my Dad's last year as a pentagenarian - complete with Nintendo Wii. This was my first chance to ever box my dad (I won by the way). Too bad it wasn't Festivus. :) It was great to get out of the house and see the family one more time before things get busy again. Happy Birthday, Dad!

Wednesday was Heidi's 4-week birthday! She's a month old already. We call her "Chubs" now because her cheeks are exploding off her face! Seriously, she's all cheek. She's doing great, though. Darice has done a great job of getting her on a schedule and is figuring out her new life at home with her girl. Daddy tries to get her out of the house as much as he can. That's really the substance of our lives right now. It's not much, but we love it and give thanks for all of the gifts that God has given us.
