Roqos Review: Protecting Your Home Network…

17 June 2017

0 Comments

For many years, I’ve had other families ask about how they could protect their home networks and filter their internet traffic like we’ve done. The problem is the method we’d used wasn’t simple, wasn’t easy to set up, configure, or even use for the average home user. Oh, and it required a separate, dedicated computer […]

Call the Midwife: Unexpectedly Amazing…

2 January 2017

0 Comments

Wife had heard some good comments about the show Call the Midwife, so we started watching. We were hooked instantly. First, there’s the topic itself: midwifery. We’ve always been that family that uses midwives and planned for home births or non-hospital births (though all but one kiddo had other plans). But the show is very […]

No Rose-Colored Glasses…

The outpouring of love and encouragement since we put out the news about the concerns with Evanna Joy have been amazing. We definitely appreciate and cherish the prayers and words of support. There’ve been times, though, where it feels like some have almost expected us to be distraught rather than hopeful, stressed rather than at peace. But […]

Father’s Day for the Fatherless…

19 June 2016

I’ve always struggled with Father’s Day.  Not with being a father…that part I like and cherish…but with the other side of the equation and not really having had a father. So whether you are without a father because of his choices in life, or distance, or even death…you are not alone. There are two things […]

Baby Update…

It’s been a bit since there’s been an update, and while we don’t have much in the way of new information (because the other appointments haven’t taken place yet), there’s a little bit to pass along for those that have been following and praying. Yesterday was the formal intake appointment in Tacoma where the prenatal […]

This Christian’s Response to the Orlando Shootings…

15 June 2016

I’ve waited several days to write this, for several reasons: to avoid the knee-jerk reactions that we’re seeing all around us; to collect my thoughts; to allow for additional information to come from the investigation; to not appear to be jumping on the bandwagon that so many in the media, in politics, and in social […]

Social Constructs: The Illogical Logic…

9 June 2016

0 Comments

A social construct is, according to those that profess such ideas, an idea or notion that appears to be natural and obvious to people who accept it but may or may not represent reality, so it remains largely an invention or artifice of a given society. Therefore, those things deserve not only to be challenged, but […]

The Test Results…

6 June 2016

We (FINALLY!) got the call from the doctor’s office with the genetic test results today. And…everything they test for, including the big concerns, all were negative. Every. Single. One. Of. Them. Phenomenal news. So what we are looking at are physical issues, not chromosomal abnormalities or other genetic issues. Also: the baby is a girl! […]

Children *are* a Blessing…

This post isn’t about the baby…at least not directly. This post is about the oldest. A few days ago I was looking at something from her Instagram posts, and saw the ultrasound pic, then read the below [and sorry that the WordPress embedding feature doesn’t show the lines between paragraphs…]. And I almost started tearing […]

No call from the clinic yet on the blood test, so with this being the weekend before we get the news, and one of the only through the summer where we’re all available, we’re heading to the ocean Sunday for a family day trip.
