Busy, Busy, Busy

I have some busy days ahead. First an upcoming business trip to Chicago. Our baby is due in about four weeks. My classes are nearing the end of the term, research papers will soon be due. I have been ordered to attend SRP at Ft. Jackson, SC sometime during March or the first week in April. I sent my request for April in as soon as possible, I do not want to risk being gone when the baby is born. It is only for three days, but it is about a nine hour drive. Everything seems to be happening at the same time.

It is busy but it is such an exciting time for our family. Natasha, Colin, Carson, and I are so excited about our new arrival Carter. I believe he will put our already lively house into overdrive! I can't wait to meet him. Colin and Carson will be good with him. I can already tell by the way they talk about the baby. They want to teach him everything. God continues to bless our family each day. God is good, all the time!

Juggling Act

I told my wife the other day if my day job doesn't work out I can always join the circus as a juggler. I have become quite the expert at juggling task here lately. To give some of you an idea of what my typical day consist of it goes something like this: Start out getting the kids ready for school and daycare. Rush to get Colin or Carson dropped off at school, Natasha takes one and I take the other. Off to work, if things go well I usually get off around 1800 hrs (6:00). I rush straight to basketball practice most nights. Practice is over by 7:30, we get a bite to eat usually finished by 8:30. I have to run to the store to get milk, bread, and ice-cream sandwiches (Carson "has to have them"). I might make it home in time to help get the boys to bed. By now it is close to 2200 (10:00). I have to work on my class work. Working towards your Master degree doesn't allow much downtime. If I am lucky I can get in bed by midnight, but some nights it is much later. Am I complaining? Not at all, I enjoy every minute of my life. My pursuit is to serve the Lord, if this it what it takes then I am completely happy.

Oh, I have picked up another side activity. I have been writing for the Army Chaplaincy website. If you get a chance check it out, Lots of good information on the site.

I should be getting close to a unit assignment. CH Savage emailed me last week and said I may hear something this week. I am looking forward to it!
