Seems like most of my recent posts have gone something like this… “Yes, “I know I’ve been out of touch for a while, etc etc etc.”  Truth is that most — if not all — of you who read this are already connected through Facebook, so I’ll just do a few quick hitters…

Really enjoying my Phils in post-season baseball again. Hate the fact that games are on so late, but whattya gonna do? That’s what happens when you’re playing a west coast team.

The next few months promise to be a bit of a whirlwind, with a wedding (playing for one), Halloween, house guests, prepping the garden for winter, church, small group, band, Thanksgiving, band, birthdays & Christmas (whew!)… and immediately following all that, my 40th and a trip east for a Philly visit. Needless to say things are going to be a bit crazy… but good nonetheless.

Ethan is going to have his first appointment with Dr Amend in less that 2 weeks for some gifted testing… it’s all designed to profile how he learns as well as give a baseline IQ for possible admission into a school we’ve been looking into for him. It’s really exciting for us to be able to let someone who knows his stuff evaluate E and give us ideas on how to allow him to grow, how to encourage his gifts, and how to best prepare him for the next few years.

More later…  I hope. I mean it this time!
