Well it seems that the year is off to a wonderful start so far.

For starters, my job at Briggs & Stratton is not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. Admittedly, it is work, but I’ve gotten quite used to it and I could certainly think of worse jobs. The best thing about it is that I only work Saturday and Sunday, freeing up my weeknights to concentrate on my studies at Murray State. There are times when I sure do miss having my weekends free, though.

Since I don’t think I’ve announced it on here, I’ll just mention that we’re pregnant again! Tabitha had her first set of ultrasounds earlier this month and the baby is growing nicely. The due date is estimated sometime around October 4th. Sorry, it’s still too early to tell if it’s a boy or girl yet!

Easter was quite exciting for us this year. Kristopher seems to have more fun each year as he grows to understand more and more how much fun holidays can be. We attended services at Westside Baptist Church, since I managed to have it off work for the holiday, and we all really enjoyed it. Kristopher got to meet several other little boys and girls his age and had a great time doing activities. As we were getting ready to attend services earlier this evening, he was really excited to be going back to church, which is really awesome!

The most interesting part of Easter, though, was the flash flood that caused the water in the creeks around our house to rise to levels I had never seen before. It was quite a surreal experience as we sat and ate chocolate bunnies while watching entire trees float through our backyard.

Classes at Murray State have been going really well this semester. I don’t know if it’s due to my new work schedule, my reduced course load, a different attitude toward my studies, or a combination of several factors, but as long as I’m able to maintain this pace, I’ll make the dean’s list for sure.

And of course I can’t finish this post without something that any geek/gamer father should be proud of: a little gamer in the making.
