Thursday

Another day of waiting… So much waiting… Lots to look forward to this weekend though.

I’m rebuilding a swing, maybe some pics coming later. I’m mowing, cleaning, etc. as usual. It’s Erin’s birthday, I probably won’t see her for the first time in 4 years.

Things are odd lately. It’s good though.

Journaling doesn’t have to be deep does it? Just functional in its own way.

Old Oaken Bucket Pics

Ben jumping over the fire The great classic rivalry in Indiana was contested yet again on Saturday, of course I’m talking about the IU/Purdue game otherwise known as the Old Oaken Bucket game. We all headed down to Bloomington bright and early, of course traffic didn’t let us get there as early as we would have liked, Erin, John, and I missed the first half of the first quarter. No biggie though. It was a nice day, we all had fun and of course IU got their butts kicked 41-14. There’s always next year right? After half time half the people left so we headed down and got better seats, some fans eh? Here’s some pics, links go to the larger versions.

The pics on the left are as follows:

  • Hey, Hey the gang’s all here!
  • IU with good field position
  • We sat really high up the first half.
  • Really high up
  • Erin and I in our IU best
  • John and Ben looking as cute as ever!
  • Franki and Erin, our girls are tough in the cold

It’s raining again

Ben jumping over the fire We still had fun though. I headed to Ben’s tonight to help him do his homework (read: I did it all). Kyle, John and Orion came by later and we had our usual fire. We blew up some mousse cans, ate some food, melted some gummy bears and basically just had a good time. As the night was winding down it started to rain, perhaps someone above was telling us that it was time to go home.
It’s been a pretty good day, the Colts won, the fire was good, I talked to a good friend in depth for the first time really. At this moment life is great.

The pics on the left are as follows:

  • John jumping over the now higher/larger fire and protecting himself
  • John threw his shirt on the fire, goodbye green hoodie that’s exactly like Jake’s
