Well, another year gone. Here's our Christmas picture for the year. The boys are in one of the almond trees next to the house we used to live in. After a short stay in Bakersfield, we're now living in Lodi. I've switched to managing a sod farm after working at an almond/pistachio farm. Exciting huh? Hope all is well for friends and family.

Pictures from the farm

Well here are a few pictures from the farm. The home is where we will be living (the dog stays so you'll have a dog kids!). Then two pictures from the orchards. One is of trees planted last year, and the other is more mature obviously. And finally, a couple of visitors I met on the way into the office today. I'm just glad they didn't lift their tails!

Here we go

Well, next week I defend my thesis. Talk about scary. I'm not sure what to expect, so naturally all sorts of things run through my mind...mostly fears. I hope for the best though. We are going to be living in California near Bakersfield. I know, HOT! It will be employment with an almond/pistachio farm. I have much to learn, but look forward to making this opportunity a great starting point for my career. Christy is most supportive (unlike her Mom and Sis...don't want to see her go). The boys are excited to be living so close to the beach and disneyland. I start the middle of June and then move the rest of the family in August.

Well here it is March and I'm dropping a note to say hi. Still working out my thesis and graduating this spring. Not sure where we'll end up living/working. Family is good. Christy has been ill for a while with some flu junk. Adam is working hard at school, reading Harry Potter 6, and generally causing havoc in the home. Zach loves art and playing on the computer. Luke makes us all laugh with his high energy and fun loving attitude. Isaac is 20 months and still not sure walking or talking is for him. He sure is a bundle of love though. G OUT...
