Instead of having to trek over to Plano this fall, our annual balloon festival attendence was right around the corner from home this weekend in Midlothian.
We had a great time watching 20-25 balloons air up with some of them taking off despite the winds. We were joined by nearly everyone in the family too; my sister and her family, my parents, grandma Kat, Craig and Janet, and Alvin and Sudie.
Balloon festivals are a neat way to get some good family time.
I hate to admit it, but I am. I love AM radio. Grew up on it (thanks dad).
From postgame discussions to political rants by main stream talk show hosts like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, I just can’t get enough.
But, I decided I had to back off last week. So I updated my Ipod playlists and cranked up some good old rock and roll on the way to work today.
Sorry Ticket (www.theticket.com), you will have to take a break. You will still be heard nearly every day, but my mind needs a rest from the discussions of Cowboys football in June and how McCain can beat Obama in November.
My ears are ringing, thanks to the soothing vibrations of some loud music!
Dear Friends and Family,
As you know, Julie and I recently adopted a baby boy from South Korea name Quinn Seong Wook. His is an amazing boy and fits right in with our family. We are truly amazed at God’s goodness and how He puts children and families together via adoption.
We have been working with Dillon International since our return and together have set up a “Fund” called the Building Families Quinn Fund in honor of our son to assist other families who feel led to adopt and help a child have a forever family. This fund will provide finances to other families who desire to adopt but may be held back for financial reasons. We personally plan to contribute monthly and wanted you all to know how you can help if you feel led. There are many families right now in the process that need grants from a fund like this and we can all help make sure a child is not left without a family simply because of money. Quinn’s Fund will be set aside specifically for children in South Korea and will also target kids with special needs.
This is a great way to give and all donations are tax deductible thanks to Dillon.

Thanks for each of you and God Bless!
