What's Up With Mike!
Hello everyone! It has been a while and yet I have nothing really exciting to blog about. I am really tired and got a thousand things running through my head. Can you relate? I have spent most of the past 3 weeks in Microsoft Certification Training classes. Talk about information overload. My head hurts just trying to piece it all together. Basically we have gone through 5 Microsoft books that are 400+ pages each. Have you ever seen the Orlando phone book? That might give you an idea. I never thought I would say this but I am looking forward to going back to work.

At the beginning of the month I hurt my back moving some major office furniture at work. We were rebuilding the Server closet and had to tone out all the network jacks. Basically that means, test about 100 cables running from the server closet to all the offices. Of course, all the network jacks were behind the desks, shelves, or a filing cabinet. So I have spent the past 4 weeks going to and from the doctor for that. I had an MRI done on Tuesday and went to a physical therapist yesterday. So now I will go to therapy 3 times a week for 2 weeks and need to go back to the doctor to get MRI results. No fun!

What's Up With Jacob!
Jacob started fall ball this month too! He has had a couple practices and will have his first game on Saturday. It will be really interesting to see how they do. His team is mostly 8 year old's half his size. There is one other boy his size and age. Because this is not the regular baseball season, there were only enough kids to form 5 teams. Most coming out of the machine pitch level. So basically, they took the older kids and divided them up on all 5 teams. He and Chase will have to lead the team and set the example for the younger ones. Jacob will be the starting pitcher, play first base, and catcher. I think it will be good for him to have this time to practice his pitching and behind the plate catching skills. Coming up next spring he will be moving up to the majors and will be playing with the big boys again!

What's Up With Hannah!
Hannah is busy too with dancing, band, and youth group. She has been dancing for a couple years now and is really good at it. I enjoy watching her and the other girls perform. She plays the clarinet in the band. Her school had a football game last week that she had to attend. So, Jacob and I put on our band shirts and went to the game too! It was like going to a Seminole game. Players on the field, cheerleaders cheering, and the band in the stands playing their hearts out. Sadly the Griffin Tigers lost but I did enjoy hearing the band play. I am very proud of Hannah and all the hard work she puts into practicing. I know most of you read on Robin’s blog about Hannah’s prayer for us to get a van before youth group started up. Well we did and Hannah has been using it to full advantage. On that first youth meeting she invited 3 girls to go with her. I am so glad that we were able to accommodate everyone so she had that opportunity. I remember when I was in youth group I would drive around town in our huge suburban and pick up friend from all over to bring them to youth group. Anyway since that first night, 2 of Hannah’s friend have gone back every Sunday. How cool is that! God has opened up a door to allow my daughter to have an avenue to share Jesus with her friends. It can't get any better then that!

What's Up With Robin!
Robin started working in the office 3 days a week. She has been working hard too. I am not sure what this will change in our day to day routine but we will see. To find out more on her you can check her blog and find out!

Nice format, telling what everyone has been up to! Sorry about the back, you really must be hurtin to have all those doctor visits. Nice priviledge of getting older I suppose. Thanks for the update.

Good job with the cell phone thing your lovely wife shared! We Dads need to stick together. Let me know how long you are able to stand up against their combined forces ;-) I'll need any strategic advice as I'm sure the same debate will sooner or later arise here.
