A Year Ago...


Hungry Girl
She was asking for more bits of her supper.
Well, a year ago as I write this, Beth was in labor and just under six hours from delivering little miss Kirstin. :)

It really doesn't seem possible that Kirstin was born a year ago. She's really grown into quite her own personality, and she's a blast to be around.

It's getting late, so I'm not going to ramble on too much, but I will talk about a few other things briefly.

My Digital Rebel XTi arrived today. :) It's going to be a lot of fun learning the intricacies of using it, and it takes some truly amazing pictures with little to no user intervention. So that's cool. :)

And I really can't believe it's been nearly a month since my last post here. Many things have been happening at the 'ranch,' and I've been busy staying afloat amidst it all.

For starters, Beth's grandpa Don passed away at the end of February. That sort of event always puts a bit of a damper on life as people reflect and so forth. This was no different.

I also paid $50 for a tank of gas in my pickup for the first time the other day. It just doesn't seem right...

And last, but certainly not least, I've accepted (and will start) a new position within the University of Minnesota system. I'm really excited about it -- I will be working with the renewable/sustainable energy research (specifically the Biomass facility) that's taking place at the Morris campus (and West Central Research and Outreach Center). It has meant that my time with Sunrise Software is coming to a close. So, to say the least, I've been busy preparing for that transition.

With all that said, it's no wonder why I haven't written anything here in a month. But, I promise to output a little more material as this spring progresses. :)

So until next time...
