For those of you only familiar with me, Daniel, let me introduce you to my family.
My wonderful wife Jennifer, Megan our 12 year old,
Connor who is 9, and our
6 year old Mallory.
We have a dog Hearty.

Connor's team is The Sharks! Before they picked what the team name was, they gave us 5 different ones to choose from. When I asked Connor if he wanted his soccer team to be named one from the list he said, "No, I want it to be called SOCCER TEAM!" We are now working on our comprehension skills.
If this photo had music playing along with it, you would be hearing The March of the Elephants in the back ground. At this point the ball is half way down the field going into our goal. Of course we don't keep track of points, but we got spanked!
Megan is getting ready to block the kick! She got to play as the goalie for part of their first game. We didn't realize how large of a field they will play on this year. It's more than 5 times larger! Megan was short of breath the entire game, but she said she had fun!
Well it's official. Megan started 1st grade August 28th. I missed the first day as I was traveling for work. Megan made me feel special though, she remembered that last year I gave her a special blessing before she started school, and she asked me to make sure to give her a blessing when I came home.
