• Our Marriage

    Tonight we have been asked to speak at The Chapel pre-marital class dinner. They have a wonderful program that over the span of a few weeks, gives lots of information that, if you pay attention in class, can help make the transition from singleness to marriage a little easier. It all culminates with a class dinner where two or three “newly” married couples come share about their marriages. This will be our third time, which means we must have a least a little wisdom to share. Only being married three years, almost, I am surprised at that little bit of wisdom. Surprised that it’s there. Surprised at how little.And sometimes…

We spent last night trying to figure out how to divide tonight between our two families. We had already planned to…

  • The Pool

    I love going to the pool. I grew up going to the pool, Montrose Swim Club. It was the best pool! It was huge. Two Olympic sized lap pools connected by a diving well, complete with a water slide, a high dive, and two low dives. A giant U shape of fun, and memories. If I am ever asked the question, “What’s your favorite summer-time memory?” My answer is always, “The Pool!” I can remember going to the pool when my brother was a toddler. That wouldn’t seem like a big deal except for the fact that he’ll be 21 in November. So, toddler time for him was a long…
