Elevation part deuce

Quick little update on Elevation . . . sitting around waiting for the buses to arrive and Annalise had some time to take pictures of the set-up. I'll post some more pictures of the sessions later this weekend.

This is the main session room:

And this is me yelling at Annalise in the back of the room all by herself:

I'm gonna be gone this weekend at our Fall retreat.

Excited, but it's a TON of prep work. Pray that God does some big things in our student's lives. The theme is "Battle of the Sexes" and it's about becoming a real man or woman of God.

A lot of Teleos ideas . . . becoming all that we are created to be.

Today I finally did a run.

I've been "training" for a half marathon the past few weeks . . . although I'm not doing too well. I've done a few runs, but for the most part I seem to find excuses not to run. I do have a date to run a half marathon and I WILL be running in it (especially now that it's on my blog).

If you workout in any way, what's your normal routine and training schedule? I'm finding it hard to pick a consistent time to run.

More of my Peoples

Over the past two weeks the visits to my blog has jumped in huge numbers! It's about 50/50 old readers vs. new readers. I would love to get to know some of you who are newer to reading my blog! Leave a comment, ask a question, and I would love to follow your blog if you have one!

No Shave November

I hate to disappoint, but No Shave November is a No-Go for me :(

There are two important reasons i decided against participating in this fantastic tradition among America's youth:

1. I really can't grow a beard, so it would be more like "ugly, dirty, I'm scared to let my children around that guy" November

2. My wife said no . . .and to all who are married, you know the first reason does't really even matter at this point.

I know it's backwards . . . but it doesn't change the fact that I voted!

It's a pretty special feeling to carry out our freedom to choose the leader(s) of our country.

Karyss' Birthday

Well, Karyss had a birthday a couple months ago . . . sorry for the late picture posts :) We had a party at our friends house, and the theme was "VEGAS BABY!" It was a big one for her . . . 25 years old. I make fun of her because now she is a quarter of a century old.

With none of us having a lot of money, people got pretty creative with their costumes. Karyss was a deck of cards, and I was carrot top!

Pretty fun evening with some fun people.
