A Good Way To Go A Long Time Without Blogging…

…is to have an incredibly busy summer.

I’ve had several topics I want to blog about, but simply haven’t had the time to sit down and write. The variety of things keeping me busy include:

  • A couple of months ago Caroline found out that she is pregnant, and we will be expecting the birth of a daughter in December. This is exciting news, but it has led to a lot of doctor appointments and other baby-related activities.
  • Also, after renting a house for the last 2 1/2 years, we decided to purchase a home of our own. After looking around we didn’t find much that we liked, so we ended up having a house built. It only took 60 days, and we successfully closed on our house last Thursday. This is also exciting news, but it has required a lot of work, meetings, phone calls, etc.
  • I’ve been doing quite a bit of traveling this summer as well: frisbee tournaments in Nashville, Tennessee and Madison, Alabama, a week at Green Valley Bible Camp, a week of vacation in Port St. Joe, Florida, and then a fun but stressful summer youth group trip in Dallas and San Antonio, Texas.
  • As a youth minister, summers are always busy with youth activities. I already mentioned camp and our summer trip, but there have been a host of other activities including devotionals, game nights, a High School Graduation Banquet, and Vacation Bible School.
  • I also have to head to Memphis in a week for a grad school class, so lately I’ve been doing a lot of reading to prepare for that.

I’m sure the busyness will continue over the next several weeks (it seems like it always does!), but I know that my life always calms down somewhat after the end of August, and I’m certainly looking forward to that.


  1. whew… makes me tired just reading it!

  2. It’s okay—home stretch now (at least that’s what I keep telling myself).
