Pre-baby, I used to work at an office right in the heart of Huntington Station. At lunch I’d often go for a walk to one of the best pizza places for lunch. On my walks I just started to notice things, and to care more for the community. My mind would often day dream, wonder [...]
pictures, audio, and video from us.
This year I took on a different role – speaker. I loved it. I spent a week at beautiful Camp Spofford in NH where Colette really enjoyed running around in and out of a lake. It was really amazing – There were about 100 kids between ages 8 and 12.
We love to go into what we call “the city”… and I think Colette is catching on. – Last Monday we took a trip to the city… mostly to see the Central Park Zoo… Colette assumed that every animal was a duck… that carousels were pretty normal and that Dinosaurs were to be run fearsomely at while making a loud “roaring” sound… in museums with great acoustics.
We are clearly way overdue for some pictures of Colette – I think most of you visit this blog just for that. – Spring has been busy, but we really had a great Easter with family, and we’ve been able to spend some time exploring the Island (day trip to Long Beach) and taking shots [...]
I wanted to share some video I’ve posted in the last couple days – I think they’re hilarious (or possibly awesome..)… too good not to share at least. The first video is from our Winter Retreat at Camp Spofford – The retreat was really incredible - hopefully I’ll also post some video of some of the [...]
Some would call this late, I say that Christmas greetings are never unwelcome…. so here you are – a Christmas greeting from the three of us Hope your Christmas season was as full of joy as ours was. Bonus – here’s video.
I preach at my church sometimes – this last Sunday, given the upcoming holidays and possible holiday “drama”, I was really burdened to talk about Peacemaking. If you missed it give it a listen. (it’s the recording from the early service, I think I was more confident the second time around) Listen To Sunday’s Sermon: [...]
Our youth group kids are hilarious – a couple weeks ago we had (for Columbus day) a Video Scavenger Hunt around Huntington Village. It seemed like an appropriate way of honoring a famous explorer. I’m really thankful to the leaders, especially EmLam who made it all happen – but enjoy these – our kids are [...]
The upside of living on and Island is that it’s surrounded by water. (there’s a quotable) We’ve had a lot of fun taking Colette to the Fire Island Light House – (several times actually). Last week we wanted to take her again but Field 5 of Robert Moses was closed from the hurricane damage – so we [...]
So we’ve discovered that if you have a dog and a baby that both enjoy constant attention, there’s a way of putting that to your advantage. (also when the dog is pretty odd looking it helps). Ashley took some pictures of Colette around the back yard – she is a cutie. – always looking around [...]
