We have a little announcement!Tara and I are expecting a baby this summer! Quite the blessing, we are excited to see the change this brings to our soon to be larger family. Too early to know if it's a boy or girl, we'll leave that guess work to everyone else for now (Yes we plan to find out later).

Tara has been doing well, although, she has gotten a 'sample' of many of the joys of the 1st trimester.

Help the Mary Our Queen Robotics team from Omaha, NE. The program expanded to four teams last year. For the 2012- 2013 school year, we have even more students interested in participating.

The teams of 6th-8th graders design, build and compete with their robots. These students are the future in engineering, science and math. We would like to buy a curriculum to enhance their learning and skills.

We also hope to qualify for post season play – State, Nationals and Worlds.

Been enjoying the College World Series this year. The TD Ameritrade Park has been a wonder venue for the games. It seems like I’ve got to watch all of the South Carolina Games, which they’ve played well and made it to the Finals. Check out my Facebook page for the photos.

The work done on the Culver Energy Efficiency World project by David Day won a Nebraska Addy.  The website provides educational materials about energy efficiency and conservation for Teachers, Students and Parents.  As a member on this project, it was a fun project that has a positive impact on others.

I’m glad to see it be recognized, it is a very attractive set of material.  More importantly, the site has been a strong addition to Culver Company’s portfolio of educational material.

The Game

Last night I had a great time playing ‘The Game’, a version of the Amazing Race. It’s been done in Omaha by a small group of people, probably years before Amazing Race ever hit the TV Screen. There were a series of clues that we followed around Omaha, trying to be the first to the finish line. Our team was Gerry, Raul, Kim, Christine and I. All of us figuring out clues as we got through the game.

We did really well for not having many Omaha ‘natives’ on the team. Our whole team had a great time. It ended with a barbeque and cake, so I’d say it was a great night.

Surprise 28th Birthday Party

I turned 28th, yesterday. And my friends in Omaha threw a Birthday party that really surprised me, it was a lot of fun. That was a clever little scheme, Christine picked me up. She had a story about going to Thuc’s house and getting Gerry at his sister’s house. We got to Thuc’s house and we went to the basement to ‘take care of some stuff’ and Dan walks around the corner, saying “Happy Birthday”. I figured he was just hanging out at Thuc’s house. Then the real surprise came when everyone else popped out. My initial response was a cross between shock and amazement. I think Gerry was going for some tears, but there was none of that. :)

I coulnd’t believe that my brother’s were there. I had asked them the day before to hang out in Omaha for my Birthday, but they gave me a story about how they had other things to do. I was really impressed by the amount of work that was put into getting everyone there. This was my first surprise B-day, so that was real cool.

Christy just bought a camera this week for her Birday and took a lot of pictures:
