How Can I Not be Grateful?

Today was an interesting day emotionally. In one way, it was extremely stressful and at times, depressingly sad. I’m coming off of two nights of poor sleep (so my mind is tempted to race) plus I was up super early trying to figure out major financial issues we’re facing. I’m feeling the weight of unpacking, plowing through mail and bills …

Last Pics from our Trip

Auntie Kali treated us to a super fun time in Chicago—the Museum of Science and Industry, Navy Pier, The Field Museum, The Aquarium/Oceanarium, the Children’s Museum … we are museum’d UP! Plus, we loved getting to spend time with Grandma Chris and the extended Barthel family during the Easter holiday … Our drive home with a stop at Mount Rushmore …

Especially when he let Ella play with his glasses: Of course, my sister Kali’s …

Born in 1970

I’ve been thinking a lot about my childhood / teen years lately because: 1. I’m chewing through books on the teens of this generation: The Millennials, Generation iY, and also reading Tim Challies’ new book on The Digital Explosion … so I’m thinking about our old black and white television, our first VHS machine, our first microwave, Pong, Space Invaders, …
