News news news... lets see if I can remember whats been going on.
Christian and I bought our first pieces of furniture. And being completely new to furniture shopping, we also spent way more money than we should have. Having said that, we did get some beautiful, well made furniture (all solid wood, no veneers, dovetailed joints, etc.) and it should last a long time. This was a bedroom set for the new master bedroom we are working on. I don't have any pictures of the room yet. We still have a few more things to do in there, so after we wrap those up and clean up the room, I will take some pictures. Christian and I really love the color we chose and the new look. It is starting to become our "sanctuary downstairs".
Neo went to the YMCA Camp Pinetree again. This time, he stayed for five days. He really enjoyed it. Pictures are here.
Mom, Emily, and Kam came to visit us last weekend and helped us get some things together in the baby room. Also, Mom helped out with cooking and cleaning, which was a huge help. Thanks guys. We really appreciate it. A couple of pictures of the boys playing are here.
Christian is doing well with the pregnancy. "Enfant" is still doing well and planning his escape.
Neo spent his 2nd to last week of summer vacation at a Karate Camp. Much of the camp was not about karate, but he did manage to get a couple of lessons in, and we think he may try some karate lessons after school this year.
Yesterday, while mowing the grass, I found that the backyard had lots of spider webs. As I was going around weed-eating, I ran across one huge web with two banana spiders in it. Some pictures of them are here, along with a video of me feeding her a worm. These spiders are actually called golden silk orb-weavers, and are very cool. Neo and I had fun catching lovebugs and throwing them into the web and watching the big spider eat them. We threw in a worm after lovebugs started getting boring. I thought the worm might be too big, but the big one attacked it immediately and started wrapping it up.

I would like to tell everyone how wonderful my wife is. I feel so blessed to have her as my lifelong teammate, that I felt like writing to the world about it.
Right now, I am involved with a business opportunity that is taking quite a bit of my time. It is a big opportunity, so I am trying to give it everything that I can.
But through all this, I have a wife. I have a pregnant wife. I have a house that we are trying to get ready before the baby. She has every reason to demand that I be at home and I be making her comfortable. She has every right to be upset with me working late.
But, she doesn't. Not only does she not do those things... she is supportive. She understands and helps me out. I am so truly blessed.
I love you so much sweetheart, and I really appreciate the sacrifice you are making for me and our family. It really means a lot to me. And quite frankly, after this business effort is over, and after we have the baby, you deserve a big, something. I dunno what... but you deserve it.
I love you with all my heart. Thank you for understanding.
