Hi!

I feel like a newcomer. It's been soooo long since I've spent any real time here. I've been quite busy lately, started a new job today, been working on a web site for the family, blah blah blah...

I hear you Rob....I haven't been here too much lately either, even though the island is my favorite place in the world! I'm the baseball coach at my high school and this is the busiest time of the year. Not to mention that we have a 5 year old who has basketball on Mondays, indoor soccer on Wednesdays, tennis on Saturdays and he is now starting t-ball. Of course, my wife and I volunteered to be the coaches. We also have a one-year old so we spend quite a bit of time chasing him as well. We love every minute of it though. ...Brad

We waited quite a while to have kids ourselves. I was 32 with the first one and 37 with the second. It is amazing how the body just somehow adapts to lack a of sleep and the amount of energy needed to keep up with the kids. I know it looks like we have our son involved in a ton of activities but he does love them. We figure it is better than having him laying around the house playing video games and he does love coming to the island! Brad

WoW! I'm glad I'm a young grandma.... Mine range from 5 months to 8 years.. All from my 27 year old daughter.. I enjoy the youthful intensity.. I also enjoy it when they all go home! Laughing Yours are at such a wonderful age of forming habits and gaining prespective.. You all sound like wonderful parents..

I'm finding out it is so hard not to spoil them. You always want to make life a little better for them than it was for you (even though I have no complaints about my childhood). I guess it's just on the job training.
