A Beginning

For months friends and family have been telling me I need to start a blog. I never really knew much about it. I asked some questions and did some investigating and decided I'd give it a shot. With the semester over, I had a little time to put some thought into something other than the identity crises of the Italian Renaissance and the dangers of malnutrition, obesity, and the psychological challenges that accompany an eating disorder (which is different than disordered eating, don't you know).

Introduction: This is my family
Pretty cute, eh? Not the most recent picture but we haven't had a recent family photo update. This was the day of The Giraffe's baby blessing (we are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, a baby blessing is essentially our version of a Christening). The Giraffe was about 8 weeks old.

Well, we'll update from time to time as I understand that is how this works... during the school year I become a little anti-social as I balance school with family, callings (church assignments-lay clergy), and all the rest...we'll see if I can manage to inform you along the way...


  1. White toothpaste works wonders to get crayon off. Just a tube of cheap-o plain Colgate and a toothbrush. I make the kids clean their own (but you have to watch them to make sure they don't eat it!)

    Dude - I think you are a mom.
