Guilt post

OK I freely admit it. This post is here because I am feeling bad about not posting for a while. So what is going on in my life?

Ramped up leadership for one. I am the Net Control Station coordinator for the Emergency Amateur Radio Club now. That is taking time to get organized and launched. The video ministry at church that I lead is also ramping up. Here is a link to 2 videos I recently did for New Hope Mililani:

Our small group, Wananada Wednesdays, is still plugging away too, though we meet on Thursdays this semester because of a class Gary is teaching.

Helping Bryan and Bradley with school work is still a daily activity. I have basically stopped watching TV except at meals. I still watch 10 minutes of the first season of "24" every lunchbreak! I enjoy that and LOST when we can find time to watch it on the DVR.

I still am listing to my audiobooks during my drives and can sometimes fit in an archery session or 2 each week before work. Feeling bad about not exercising lately. I'd like to, but I am not willing to get up earlier yet.

Well that's about it for my guilt blog confession. As with so many things, my blogging and twittering comes in waves and right now I'm between peaks.

I have shot a vlog with Bradley, but I haven't gotten around to editing it yet.

Give it time. Thanks for dropping by!

Peace, Love and long breaks,

More good news for Bryan

After coming in third at Hanalani, Bryan was honored to set up his science fair project at the district science fair on Monday. Tuesday he went to answer judges questions and he said it was packed! Wednesday Grandma and Auntie went to see his project and discovered he had placed FIRST in the junior research division! When Em got the call, she thought they were saying FOURTH, and she was happy about that! When they finally made it clear he received FIRST how much more exciting it was!

Bryan will now be part of the group representing the district at the State Science Fair, March 31st. He may receive awards at this level and of course, if he does very well, a possible trip to the mainland would be in store. That would be pretty amazing, because there are some incredible projects at the state level, so we'll just take this one step at a time, completely enjoying each step.

Congratulations Bryan!

Bryan's Marine Expedition

We arrived early last night at Aloha Tower and had dinner by the boat, anticipating Bryan's upcoming adventure. He will be on the Pacific Monarch until Saturday, learning marine science and biology, snokeling, kayaking, ocean rappelling, and all sorts of great stuff. He looked a little lonely until his friends showed up. We know he is going to have an amazing time and we miss him already.

Peace Love and Waves,

Reflecting on no reflection

It has been a while since I've blogged, mostly because I haven't had time to sit and reflect much. Only now I can write a little because I'm sitting in my dentist's waiting room. A life lived without reflection isn't healthy. I need to create the time to be quiet and silent. Someday. OH, I'm up now. Time for my teeth cleaning! (and so it goes....)
