Maybe I'm back.... but I doubt it.

Apparently someone out there still checks this long-abandoned blog of mine, at least some of the time. I'm still a terminally quiet person, and not likely to actually keep this up, but it can't hurt to try.

It's been over a year, so where to start?
April - Allison and I went to Georgia to attend "Jordancon", a fan-created convention centered around Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. We had a chance to speak with the author who is taking over the series, and meet the original author's wife, cousin, publisher and loads of fans.
May - McGuire had a piece of art in an art show. There are pictures in the gallery.
September - Archer started Kindergarten, and McGuire started 6th grade.
January - I took a trip out to Indiana to play D&D for three days. It was a lot of fun, and I got to hang out with my friend Steve.
February - We got a trip to Florida, thanks to Allison's sister. We did some volunteer work to get a day pass to Disney World, and had a good time.
April - Allison ran for a position on the Millbury School Board, but did not win a seat. It turns out OK, since she was getting very busy with her new job working on the Census.
May - McGuire finally took the plunge into the spotlight in his Spring concert - playing a trio of the Harry Potter theme in front of a high school auditorium.

I had a request for my Xbox Live gamertag - and who am I to deny an honest query from my nephew. I cleared off a friend I haven't played with in ages, so I should be able to accept his friend request.

How about pictures? Loads of them?

How do I express how excited I am about a post AND pictures?! Really, I'm elated. (As you may know, there's nothing I hate more than the wrong word choice, so that's saying something). You all look so happy and fabulous. Archer and McGuire look incredibly alike. Allison is looking very fit and healthy. You look like the happiest, proudest dad ever. And I can see why. The boys are so active and impressive. Looks like 2009 was great. I'm thrilled for you.

Wish we lived closer...but not really cause I avoid a bunch of stuff that I'm too selfish to want to deal with...that being said, I wish we saw each other more. I'll work on that.

Jake will not be on his xbox until the weekend which sounds harsh but his reality this week is that he will be at Elitch Gardens today (which is the Denver Six Flags park) with his class until late tonight and then tomorrow is a "service day" where they go pick up trash at local parks instead of go to school. I imagine by Saturday he'll be able to fit you in... :)
