SpamTown here we come

As many of you know, Jess and I have decided to take an associate pastor position at Cornerstone Church in Austin, MN.


Last Sunday, July 27th, was our last Sunday at Sparta New Life. We are sad to leave our friends in Sparta, but very happy to be moving to Austin to begin a new chapter of our lives.

Here is a picture of the sanctuary of the Cornerstone Church.

Coconut Cake for Breakfast

This weekend we got a chance to run down to my parents house just for a night. My dad had a new pier that he just put in down on their lake and he wanted the boys to come do some fishing. Jacob had been looking forward to it for a long time. We had a great night friday night. We ate fish and frog legs (a specialty at the local restaurant) and then spent a beautiful summer night fishing on the dock. We caught a bunch of sunnies and they were good sized too. The boys had a blast! Levi only fell in once and he hung onto the rope and I was able to pull him back in. (It wasn't real deep where he fell in anyways...but it still made my heart skip a beat.) The next morning while waiting for grandma's egg bake to finish levi helped himself to some coconut cake. His sweet tooth is from his father's side:) On Saturday jacob got a chance to fish with his friends dylan and zach. There was a fishing contest being held by a local church and we signed the boys up for it. Jacob ended up winning second place in the size category. He was excited because he won spiderman boxing gloves. Thanks grandma & grandpa for the great memories!!!

Claire Elizabeth (a.k.a.#5)

Claire Elizabeth made her entrance into the world saturday morning. Auntie Rachel was very happy to finally meet her sweet little girl. We are all excited about having another little girl to add to the very boy biased cousin count. She was 9 lbs. 12 oz. and 21" long. She has a whole head of dark thick hair & is absolutely adorable!

easter pictures

We did easter baskets the night before because sunday mornings
are usually pretty rushed around our house. Levi got a new tricycle and
Jacob got a star wars lego toy. Levi liked his bike but I think he may have
liked the candy just as much. He is a candy freak!!! If Jacob or Hannah left
their easter basket unattended for even a second he had his hand in there
digging around for candy and shoving it into his mouth as fast as his little
hands could go. He is rotten little two year old...but one of the cutest I know!
We dyed eggs and that was a big hit with Levi too. He loved sticking his
hands into the dye and cracking the shells all over the table. Aaah...boys are
so much fun!

Cool Moves

"Dad, can I watch my moves again?"

That is the question I get asked anytime I am at my computer or within five feet of the video camera. So here is another video of Jacob breaking it down.

He is just about as good as the original
