Caden has been playing soccer this fall and loves it.  Coach Gus is awesome and some of his best friends are on his team.  Its a hoot to watch their games and see them growing into better players.  One day, quite separate in time and space from soccer, Caden wondered out loud, “I don’t know why they call them shin guards.  I would have called them Protec-shin.”  Man, the stuff that kid comes up with just amazes me.

Mr. Clean

May 29th, 2010


For a few years I’ve been wanting to shave my head but was afraid of what it would look like. Hair loss was not in my control however, and I was soon to become bald anyhow (I was about 75% there already). The neighbors threw a hair cutting party for their four year old daughter who has retinal cancer. If Anya was going to shave her head then I could too. Thanks for the courage Anya.

Oh yeah, our blog

May 27th, 2010

Wow. Over a year since the last post. A lot has happened in a year…too much to catch up on. But armed with a sweet new Android phone loaded with a blogging app, perhaps I’ll post more often.

No fooling…we are FIVE

April 1st, 2009

I should’ve known we were hours away from having a baby when Steph went to cleaning the house like wild woman.  But the house was spic and span including all of the window sills on March 31.  A seemingly Divine set of circumstances had caused me to reschedule our lease signing with the new tenants for the morning of April 1 instead of in the evening.  At about 4am on April 1 Steph was having contractions about 10 mins apart.  Being the trooper she is she toughed it out, sent me on my way to the townhouse, and called her mom to come to our house.  With the lease all signed and some loose ends tied at work she called me a little after 9am and told me to head home.  I picked her up at the house and we headed to the hospital.  Almost a perfect repeat of Dacen, we arrived at the hospital at 10am and Brielle Kaylynn Wach was born at 11:13am!!  Steph did it sans the epidural and only about 5 minutes worth of an IV pain killer because when she gets dilating, get ready because you only have a few minutes before the baby is born.  She was amazing and so is Brielle. 

Her first visitors were Caden, Dacen and Granna.  The boys think she is awesome and Caden can’t get enough of holding her.  Uncle Brian stopped by and so did Uncle Rob (Rob, his wife Rachel and their daughter Aislin are very good friends of ours from work and church…Rachel and Aislin are out of town so Rob was solo).  After dinner G-dad came by with Granna and the brothers.

God is sooooooo good!!!

A swimming success

March 22nd, 2009

I have toyed with the idea of taking swim lessons for a long time.  Finally, Steph signed me up for a 6 week session through the rec center.  My goal was to be able to swim freestyle 25 yards without stopping.  At week 5 I had done it…you would have thought I was Michael Phelps (minus the bong hits) when I reached the other side of the pool…I whooped and hollered and punched the air with my fists and I looked up and saw that Caden had seen me do it…he gave me the thumbs up!!  Next up, I have to be able to do 25 yards without being totally wiped out.
