I know we have greatly slacked off as far as our Blog is concerned. No real excuse either. I have been busy finishing up my Systematic Theology II course this month. Just finished an interesting paper critiquing C.S. Lewis' view of God and Time in Mere Christianity. Lots of rain this past month. Many records set apparently. We have been disciplining ourselves over the past 3 weeks by waking up at 6 am and going to the gym to work out every weekday morning. This gives us enough time to read a couple passages and pray together after breakfast. This has been very good for us. We are excited that we have lasted for 3 weeks. Kim has been feeling better because of the exercise, I think, as far as her joints as concerned, which were bothering her for a long time. We hosted a Memorial day picnic for our apartment building and eight couples showed up. We played Monster Volleyball, which is volleyball with an oversize ball. We have more free time on our hands, now that "24" and American Idol are over. By the way, I was rooting for Taylor Hicks since his audition. That makes me 3 for 4 over the past 4 American Idols in picking the winner from the auditions; I picked Reuben, Carrie and Taylor. Did not pick Fantasia, never liked her voice- too whinny. Kim's parents are visiting us in a week, so we are excited about that. I am going on a fishing trip next Thursday. It was a present for my next door neighbor Josh. He got this great chartered fishing trip and was able to have some buddies go along. Should be fun. I'll try not to get sunburned like I did last week when we went fishing (caught 7 or 8 Croppies that day). we'll try to be better about updating. I guess it just gets to a point where you haven't done it for a while and then you kinda forget about. We will try to be more observant in the future. Thanks for the kick in the butt Joel.
