Herolds' Hangout

Thoughts, Reminders, and Reasons to Brag...


Bomb Scare

Today was interesting. Skyler's daycare called Renea to come pick him up because his entire building was evacuated and the rest of the high school was put on lock down for hours. Josh called Renea to come pick him up because he was bored, but the line of parents was much too long.

It ended up being a shoebox with some wires.

Storm Owie!

This afternoon, Renea noticed Storm was bleeding. We thought she might be in heat, but soon found out it was from her left front paw. The dewclaw was badly cut. I took her to the vet and they had to give her a sedative to fix her up. Storm is always an excited dog, so that made perfect sense! They also found out her other front paw needed fixing. A couple hundred dollars and a very pleasantly relaxed dog later, Storm came home and posed for this photo. She also turned one a couple days ago.

Home Sick

Skyler woke up this morning with a fever, so I stayed home with him. He's currently sleeping while I typed this. Yesterday, I visited his school and took a bunch of photos for their end-of-the-year DVD. Most of the time he followed me around, even preferring to sit down right next to me as I tried to take photos from the corner of the play yard. This is one of him watching the outside world (or the guy trimming the parking lot trees).

Biking Home

I've been biking home from work a few times per week and today was the most difficult, but most rewarding experience so far. It started to rain and the wind was around 30 MPH, while I cycled uphill towards the house. I was surprised it only took a little more than a half hour - it seemed twice that. I stopped a couple time under a tree to take a breather and drink water. It was tough.


Yesterday, Renea and I took Skyler to church in downtown Scottsdale and then we spent the rest of the afternoon at her mom's. Skyler was the only child there and got a lot of attention. He tired everyone out.

Curling Tongue

For some reason, I am the only person that I know that cannot curl their tongue. I took this photo of Skyler as we sat and watched mommy vacuum and mop the living room. It was tiring work.

New Router

I just hooked up the new Apple Airport Extreme Base Station and tested out the internet download and upload speeds. Not bad.
