Dont you feel safer now?

Ok funny story. I was in one of my best friends wedding last weekend. We went to High School together in North Dakota. (Congrats Matt)
Anyway, the wedding was in Washington state and they had to fly me out. So for my first fathers day miss Ella gave me this whole really cool shampoo/calone/body wash gift pack. I really need all that. So I decided that sense it was just a weekend trip I could just pack it all in my back packing bag. Didnt need to check anything in.
So I get to that area where you have to put all that stuff in the machine so they can make sure that you dont have any weapons and thought......CRAP my razor is in there. I send it on through anyway and they say they have to search my bags. I figured as much.
SO he is going though all my stuff, no big deal until he gets to the body wash and shaving cream. Takes them out and says he has to either throw them away or i can have them sent home. I look at him like he was crazy. So then I pick up my razor and say I can keep this with five blades but I cant keep shampoo or shaving cream. "Correct" in a very stern voice. Well I was not satisfied with that. So i continue to ask.....
"Sir, how on earth does that make any sense? I can keep a razor that actually would cut or so some damage but I cant keep the stuff to shave with or my shampoo. How does that make ANY sense?" His only response was...."Son, I dont make the rules but I make you obey them."
Ok fair enough.
He did say for 14 dollars I could have it sent home. Well for 14 dollars i can buy several shampoos and shaving cream.
So I felt very safe.....i had no shampoo, but if anyone attacked me, i had my razors to fight back with.

Here we go again!!!

Ok as most of you know, this job that I took here in Illinois is NOT working out. Not going to go into great detail about it now, most of you know anyway. So I am on the market again. I have sent my resume to a few places. Even sent a few out to places in Indianapolis. We are torn about all that. I mean the reason we moved here was to be closer to Crystal's family. But there is nothing here that pays well, and I really want to have Crystal be a stay at home mom. That has been her dream her whole life after all. And we really want her to be able to do that. So I guess we are just asking for prayer in all this. I have also decided that I am going to go back to school and get my El Ed degree. Not sure if I am going to do that here in Illinois or go to Indy and do it. Either way I will need a job first before we can get that going. I just hate this feeling. I thought at this point in life we would be done searching for jobs and have a good career going. Oh well maybe I should have just done el ed to begin with.

Best way to start the day!

I love being a dad. This morning I woke up at 7 am and kinda had a little panic. Ella normally wakes us up at this time. There was no noise coming from her room. So I rush in there to see and she was out cold still sleeping. But she was not sleeping how we put her down. Normally we set her in her crib the normal way, as you would lie in a bed. But this morning she was lieing at the front of the crip sideways. It was very funny to see. Anyway, I went and told Crystal she can sleep in for a few more minutes because Miss Ella was still sleeping. When I got out of the shower, she was already up and dressed. (I dont know how Crystal gets her ready so fast). And she was all smiles. She was very vocal this morning as well. Squealing and giggeling. And man can she make noise now. I didnt want to go to work I wanted to stay home and play with her. I cant beleive how big she is getting and how fast she is growing up. She is already eating rice for breakfast. Let me tell was a great way to start my day.
